There are special functions available for the single products of the Q-DAS software portfolio. You may add them as an extension to your product.
The Q-DAS Web-Launcher is the central and only entry point into the web-based applications of Q-DAS. It allows you to start the available applications and work within the "workspace". Furthermore, it allows the user to log on to the system and authenticate only once in order to potentially use all applications.
The Central Entry Page and the Central Workspace
The new Q-DAS Web-Launcher enables the user to potentially run all available applications in the Q-DAS Web world, in any number. This enables parallel working as well as a clearly integrated view.
Once a language change and all applications change automatically
With the centralised application of the Q-DAS Web-Launcher, the language setting can be changed globally and directly to one of the available languages at any time. This also applies to applications that are already open.
The Explorer for quickly finding, viewing, and opening saved reports
With the new Explorer function within Web-Launcher, users can now browse and open all reports. The reports from the new Analysis & Reporting Tool are displayed in PLV in the Explorer. This includes report preview, search functionality, and various "quick filters" (All Reports, My Reports and Last Reports).
The Q-DAS software products are available in 22 languages A mouse click is all it takes to adjust the view to the desired language. This means that employees in different locations worldwide can work with the Q-DAS software in their own language.
Q-DAS Form Designer - Individual report design
The Form Designer makes it easy to create and modify existing report templates. The templates can be used in all Q-DAS products. Particularly in combination with M-QIS, the Form Designer offers the possibility of optimally individualising reports for the respective recipient. Various elements such as texts, characteristic values, database texts, parts, characteristics and additional data as well as graphics (qs-STAT graphics and image files in BMP, JPG, EMF, WMF format) and links and link symbols can be selected from a toolbox and placed in the desired position in the report by "drag & drop".
Q-DAS 3D CAD Viewer - Integration of 3D CAD models
CAD models serve it as visual support for the employee during the execution of the inspection task. In the integrated reporting system, inspection and evaluation results can be displayed using the CAD model.
3D CAD as a basis for the inspection plan creation
If an inspection plan already exists in the Q-DAS products and measured values have already been recorded, the characteristics can be assigned after selection in the CAD model.
Support during data acquisition
In addition to real-time tracking of results and SPC alarm monitoring, the feature-specific view can now also be integrated into the CAD model. This guides the operator optimally through the measuring task.
Reporting system including 3D CAD
The consistency of using the CAD model is also reflected at the reporting level. Individually adaptable reports refer to the desired CAD model and by assigning the features/characteristics an automated display of the relevant characteristics with their evaluation results takes place.
Q-DAS Q-DM Data Management - Automated data transfer of files from external systems to the Q-DAS database
The Q-DAS database is the basis for statistical evaluations, for example with qs-STAT. Only the database enables an easy comparison of different information (machines, orders etc.) and automated evaluation with M-QIS Engine.
Q-DM is usually installed on a server in the network, often also as a service. Directories in which Q-DAS files are created are monitored cyclically. If a file is written to a monitored directory, its contents are stored in a Q-DAS database. This is done based on defined rules that can be set in Q-DM. This ensures a clear allocation of measurement information in the database.
Various additional settings can be made. For example, alarms can be reacted to when uploading to the database and corresponding entries can be set for later evaluation. In case of problems during transmission due to missing network or faulty files, protocols are created which can also be sent to system administrators by email. Ensuring the data flow is the primary task of Q-DM - Data Management.
If the data are not in the Q-DAS data format, a converter can be used in Q-DM. This first converts the foreign format into Q-DAS files and then loads them into the database.
Serial interfaces - connection of manual measuring devices and measuring boxes
With many Q-DAS products, measurement data can be transferred directly via the serial interface (RS-232). Here you will find an overview of the interface packages that are available.
Serial interfaces - connection option for hand-held measuring devices and measuring boxes
Measurement data can be transferred directly via the serial interface (RS-232) with many Q-DAS products. Here you will find an overview of the interface packages that are available. Overview interfaces (PDF 185 kB)
SAP QM-IDI interface
Test planning by SAP and retransmission of measured value information
Within the QM module of SAP R/3 there is the "Inspection Data Interface (QM-IDI)". Interface to external systems, which enables the transfer of inspection-relevant data such as inspection lots, characteristics and measured values.
By means of this interface, inspection planning is carried out on the SAP side. It is defined what is measured when and where. This information is transferred as inspection lot to a local Q-DAS database. There it can then be called up by the operator.
This procedure is usually used with the Q-DAS software O-QIS or procella. The strength of procella is inspection data recording, the strength of SAP is inspection planning. This combination thus combines both advantages.
SAP QM-STI interface
Analysis of the measured value information available in SAP QM
The "Statistical Data Interface (QM-STI)" of the QM module of SAP R/3 offers the possibility to evaluate data stored in the SAP system with Q-DAS statistics.
In SAP, the data to be evaluated is transferred to Q-DAS via the QM-STI interface. The usual Q-DAS analyses can then be carried out with qs-STAT.
