In order to ensure high-quality products, you must regularly check your measurement devices and have this check certified. Tools and equipment change over time, however, as a result of wear, damage or adjustment, for example. They are then no longer compliant with the necessary standards. On this page you can learn how to manage your inspection tools with our software.
Gage management is part of an integrated quality management system. It ensures the quality, reliability, usability and operational readiness of gages in your company and is used to monitor tools.
Good gage management software integrates numerous functions for tool management and gage management. It is based on all relevant measurement system analyses (MSA).
Tool monitoring is of great importance when it comes to manufacturer liability. In the event of damage, it is essential to be able to provide reliable evidence of the test results. Calibration management software ensures that the system only permits tests with calibrated tools. This helps you avoid manufacturing errors that would result from inaccurate measurements.
Without tool management, you run the risk of producing a lower quality product and having to make costly adjustments to your processes. Tools must be accurately calibrated, as measurement inaccuracies lead to manufacturing errors. Rigid calibration intervals also result in high costs.
Using a tool management system allows you to automate and optimize calibration processes and intervals. By reducing scrap, you cut costs. Good tool management provides complete traceability from the gage to the measurement. You benefit from
gage and tool output management and the ability to trace the tools used.
Our software optimizes your production processes. It ensures cost control, traceability, gage analysis, and gage workflow optimization. By integrating with other QDA products, you can also ensure compliance with all required standards.
Use our software to check which tools were used with which settings to measure a product. The tool monitoring software fulfills the requirements of DIN EN ISO 9001, IATF 16949, ISO/IEC 17025 and MSA (measurement system analysis). It is compatible with MIL-STD-45662A and ISO 10012-1 report formats.
The tool management system provides verification and calibration of measuring instruments. It generates schedules and priority reports for calibrations and automatically notifies you of any necessary actions via email. Auditors appreciate being able to trace the maintenance history for a particular tool in relation to its audit history.
All relevant gage capability analyses, inspection plans, control charts and calibration data help you make important production decisions. This daily gage monitoring meets the requirements for inspection and traceability.
Integrate your gage management with production-related measurement tasks. When measuring instruments cease to perform properly, you can easily trace any parts that have been measured with it using the data collection function. This reduces the number of recalls your company has to handle. It also avoids large accumulations of paperwork.
Data can be captured both online and offline. By using our technology platform, you can also reduce operational costs.
