With a digital quality solution, data is available for analysis in real-time. You can analyse data by part number, shift, hour, cavity and other factors to help you identify root cause and reduce repetitive defects.
If your parts are serialized you’ll have an in-depth “digital record” of all inspection data for a given unit, including time and date stamp of inspection, inspector or repair person ID and other critical information often required by customers. Julian dates, cavity numbers, lot numbers and other info could also be recorded automatically. This is data that a paper-based solution either can’t provide or can only provide with limited detail long after the information is truly useful.
With a digital quality solution, aggregated reports can instantly identify high defect producing parts and frequently occurring defect types. You can use real-time defect maps, weld maps and concentration diagrams to tell your tooling and processing engineers where your porosity, shrink, flash, shorts and other defects are occurring so that appropriate process improvements can be made.
