O-QIS
Operator Quality Information System

O-QIS contains the required features to support the user in production or in the
metrology lab in their quality evaluation and assessment tasks. The software
package covers fields like standard statistical process control, online alarm
monitoring, online visualization and alarm functions.

SPC Analysis for Process Documentation

The measurement and inspection data can be collected in many different ways
and transfered to O-QIS. In addition to manual data collection, direct transfer of
data from manual gages, fixture gages, measurement devices and multiplexer
boxes is possible through the RS232 or USB interface. The collected
measurement values can be visualized in different ways (for example: quality
control charts, actual value chart, bar chart etc.) and help the user with a target
oriented evaluation.

The high flexibility of the software package enables the target oriented
configuration of data recording and visualization. This ranges from „easy2use“
to the freely configurable measurement process control.

Online Alarm Monitoring Creates Transparency

With large amounts of data in brief time intervals like for example process
parameters from assembly systems, die casting machines, furnaces etc., real
time visualization and alarm monitoring are vital. Different display types are
available ranging from charting individual values and trends of the measurement values to compacted status displays of the entire production facility. Data transfer from the system is carried out through the Q-DAS ASCII Transfer Format.

Real TimeVisualization for Target Oriented Decisions

In case of measurements with large numbers of characteristics and long
measurement cycles, for example coordinate measuring systems or more
complex measurement instruments, the focus is on the display of problematic
characteristics, to clearly pinpoint them right away. This facilitates the
immediate identification of weaknesses in the process.
The structured user interface with simple buttons create a high degree of
accepance with the users.

Alert Function Provides Confidence

In order to minimize the risk of overlooking deviations from given target values,
the recorded measurement values are validated immediately based on alarm
conditions that can be defined freely. As soon as an alarm occurs, a selected
group of people can be informed in different ways. In addition to the display of
the alerted characteristic, the automated distribution of a report (printout, PDF,
E-mail or SMS) is possible.
