DCS will be showcasing QDM Plant Level SPC Software

Three Levels to Fit Your Company

QDM is a modular system that can be implemented at three distinct levels in an organization. The system can be scaled with additional modules as the organization’s need grows.

At the Inspection Labe/Measurement Cell Level

At the basic level, QDM Analyst provides translators for mining and producing quality reports utilizing CAD graphics. This graphical reporting puts the information into decision making context, giving engineers and manufacturing professionals the ability to quickly understand production issues and the means to solve them.

At the Plant Level

Plant-Floor-BreakdownAt the plant level, QDM Plant Based System builds upon QDM Analyst to interconnect the manufacturing lines. The system allows for a graphical user interface at the shop floor data collection points to capture part by part inspection data entry, and automates the data processing of any inline or CMM results. This gives plant managers the ability to set up real time stations with graphics, giving the plant floor second by second understanding of product quality, while also providing QDM Analyst based reports and metrics. Utilizing the QDM System’s web based drill downs and root causing analytics lets Quality Managers dive deep into their data and find the information they need for continuous quality improvement and to validate lean manufacturing processes. In addition, with a few clicks, professionals can create reports from any set of data to see how specific machines, locations or shifts are performing, or to drill down into issues to identify problems.

Enterprise Level - Multiple Plants or Sites

Connecting plants together forms the Enterprise Level of QDM Systems. This level leverages multiple QDM Plant Based Systems with a web based method of interfacing the manufacturing information across multiple plants and global locations. Through the QDM WEB module, executives, plant managers, and engineers can all monitor product quality through dashboards that track inspection data analytics at the part, assembly, plant and enterprise level.

30-measure-report-graphics-page-qdmThe latest version of the QDM System makes interconnecting an organization easy, and provides the means of connecting engineering and manufacturing through feedback loops throughout the product life cycle. The system allows different levels of users to mine for any shop floor data and create decision making reports with a few button clicks. This communication utilizes quality information as the standard language, helping engineers continually improve the product design while empowering manufacturing to identify the source of problems to quickly fix and resolve them. By implementing a QDM System within current processes and systems, companies can leverage the cost reductions in scrap and rework without changing their standard processes and current systems.

Through the use of QDM, major manufacturers across the world are gaining clear insight into their production, identifying and solving issues faster and more efficiently while improving process comprehension across the organization.
