Body Shop Management Software

A body shop management system streamlines your internal processes, saves costs and increases efficiency. It manages the master data from all departments centrally in a uniform format and records data from the inspection technologies as well as directly from the production lines. Read on this page how our Body Shop Management software can support your business.

What is Body Shop Management?

Numerous assembly and inspection technologies capture your data to visualize results, with the aim of improving work processes. The Body Shop Management software links these quickly and automatically with master data and quality data. The software precisely analyzes causes from decentralized sources in a central system. It makes predictions about production results, and significantly reduces the effort required for manual checks.

Disadvantages of production processes without a body shop management solution?

Without such a solution, you will not have a holistic overview of joining processes or product quality. Various information sources from joining technologies are often processed individually by different departments. And the different formats from many departments, such as Excel lists, paper documents or data from other software programs, prevent a uniform level of information.

Without a professional body shop management solution, mistakes or misunderstandings may occur, and you will need a lot of staff to process them.

Advantages of production processes with a body shop management solution

Central data management and centralized evaluations and reports represent the basis for the creation of inspection plans that are created fully automatically. One advantage of a body shop management solution is the reduced inspection effort combined with higher product quality. Document processes without paper and reduce reaction times when analyzing problems between process and quality data.

Get consistent up-to-date information and reduce costs related to manual planning and design work. Many product tests can be reduced and rework activities in production require less personnel outlay to complete. Benefit from the advantages of the QDA Body Shop Management system in your company.

Advantages of our Body Shop Management software

Your production areas get a central monitoring system with our Body Shop Management software. It links the plant and production parameters with the current quality situation and improves the “first time quality”.

Our Body Shop Management system reduces your costs for testing and links joining and inspection technologies. Process data correlates with quality results and is easier to analyze.

In our 45-minute OnDemand webinar, you will learn how you can…

  • improve quality and reduce costs by using inspection technologies directly on the production line
  • collect, visualize and analyze all your process, quality and technology data (for example in your sheet metal processing) in a single system
  • perform root cause analysis in only one central system, independent of any of the decentralized sources
  • standardize evaluations of inspection results

Our expert Paul Oxfeldt will present just that in our OnDemand webinar. Request now the record.

Functions of our Body Shop Management Software

MIBA technology: 3D position in 2D image

Our Body Shop Management software automatically projects the 3D position of all joining technologies onto a 2D image thanks to MIBA technology. This can be reused for many joining technologies, for the visualization and interpretation of all product and process data in one view. This way you can track missing or faulty welds, weld spots, etc. With our Body Shop Management software you can analyze causes quickly and resolve problems effectively.
