An excerpt of QDA tools at a glance

QDA Action Management

The QDA Action Management enables the creation, tracking and possible escalation of actions in QDA. Added to each action is the context of creation, a description, the responsible person as well as the appointment. Actions can assigned to orders, parts, FMEAs, PPAPs, APQPs, check plan or independently and central managed and sent out via email. Actions created may also be integrated with QDA escalation management.

QDA ERP Interface

The interface tool enables uni-directional downloading of master data maintained in files or database tables from leading ERP systems into the QDA Software. The interface tool also transfers transaction data such as incoming inspections or production orders into QDA. Following quality data collection in QDA, the usage decision is returned to the ERP system.

Any configuration changes to the interface defined with customer input will be charged on a time basis.

The interface tool can also be used for integration of MES systems and QDA. In this case a determination must be made as to which system is the lead or primary.
We supply interfaces for SAP, BAAN, NAVISON, PsiPenta, InforXA, MAPICS, UB-Soft, Fauser, Coscom, TBS Prosi, ActivPlant and a generic QDA ERP interface.

QDA MES Interface

The interface tool allows downloading master data from the MES system into the QDA Software. The MES is the leading system. The data is based on files or database tables and is limited to a uni-directional communication (MES -> QDA). The interface tool also transfers transaction data such as that coming from incoming inspections or production orders into QDA. After quality data collection in QDA, the usage decision, based on files or database tables is returned to the MES.

See attached description of the file or table formats. Any configuration changes defined with customer input will be charged on a time basis.

If the QDA ERP Interface is also used, a determination must be made as to which system is the leading one.
