Automated Reporting System
Approved as a perfect management tool, M-QIS processes quality information and increases the transparency of workflows, processes and business transactions. The acquired knowledge forms the basis for decisions and measures leading to continuous process improvement. Reliable statistics build confidence and minimise the risk of producing defective parts.
Automated reporting system
The core element of M-QIS is the automated reporting system loading data cyclically from the database, evaluating them and sending reports or messages to specified recipients (printout, email, PDF file or SMS). Several evaluation strategies are available and users analyse the data based on the evaluation strategy they select. In order to keep afloat in this information flood, the software only sends reports when the process does not meet certain requirements.
Overview by compressing statistics
Continuous long-term process analysis requires a well-structured compression and processing of huge amounts of data. Based on respective allocation criteria, the software stores the statistics calculated from original values and gives an overview of the entire process by providing straightforward summary graphics as well as benchmarks and by offering long-term statistical process control.
A centrally controlled service cyclically performs routine jobs and functions to support users in their daily work – the analysis of (mass) data. Depending on individual requirements, the software runs scheduled jobs or specific events trigger the jobs. M-QIS Engine reduces the burden of manual data analysis and provides the users with task-related information about the current quality status.
The following functionalities are a perfect extension to the Q-DAS software product destra:
solara.MP is available in 22 languages. One click is all it takes to switch the language of a specific view. Employees working in different plants all over the world may apply Q-DAS software in their own language.
Q-DAS Form Designer makes it easy to create and modify available report templates. You may apply these templates in any Q-DAS software product. The interaction with M-QIS helps you adapt reports to the specific requirements of your intended recipients. Select from a tool box of texts, statistics, parts data, characteristics data and additional data as well as graphics (qs-STAT graphics and image files in the BMP, JPG, EMF and WMF format) and add links and logical operation formulas. Use drag-and-drop functionalities to position these elements in a report.
The Q-DAS database forms the basis for statistical evaluations in qs-STAT. Only the database makes it easy to compare different information (machines, orders, etc.) and evaluate them automatically in M-QIS Engine.
Transfer of data
Q-DM is typically installed on a server in your network, sometimes even as a service. It monitors directories cyclically storing Q-DAS files. As soon as you store a file in a directory you Q-DM monitors, the systems saves its contents to a Q-DAS database. This process is based on defined rules you adjusted in Q-DM; these rules ensure a clear allocation of measurement information in the database.
You may adjust a wide range of settings, e.g. how to respond to alarms occuring while loading files in the database and store specific information to be considered in subsequent evaluations. The tool is able to generate protocols when a problem occurs while transferring data, e.g. due to a missing network connection or erroneous files and sends them to system administrators by email. The major task of Q-DM Datamanagement is to guarantee a smooth data flow.
In case your data are not available in the Q-DAS data format, you may apply a converter in Q-DM. It converts the foreign format into Q-DAS files and loads them in the database.
Automated archiving for a high-performance database
Q-ARC is only an extension to M-QIS Engine.
Even in case of high-performance databases, there is the time when you have to consider whether it is reasonable to store all collected measured value information in a single database. Since you usually try not to just delete the data in order to raise the performance, you try to outsource the data, i.e. store them in different databases or save them as Q-DAS ASCII files.
Q-ARC is the perfect tool for an automated archiving of data. As an example, you want a database to keep data for 12 months. As soon as 12 months are over, you archive all the data that are older than 12 months. This is a job that Q-ARC is able to perform.
You manage Q-ARC jobs in M-QIS. After purchasing a Q-ARC licence, M-QIS Engine offers archiving jobs.
