Reporting system and statistical control boardThe statistical software products from Q-DAS can be used to load and evaluate data from the database and provide them in the form of reports. Q-DAS M-QIS (Management Quality Information System) automates all of these steps.
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 or PDF file). 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.
Q-DAS M-QIS provides users with the option of calculating process statistics continuously over a long period and storing the results based on individual process information (line, machine, cavity, tool, etc.) in the Q-DAS database.
This makes it possible to load and process larger amounts of data quickly, since the software only accesses statistics that have already been calculated.
An adjustable automatism specifies the time to save these results and the compression criteria which the evaluation is based on.
Q-ARC (archiving) is used to optimise and maintain the performance of the database in daily use while still allowing access to historical data at any time. Data sets can automatically be swapped out at regular intervals in order to keep the active database lean and streamlined.
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.
Graphical user interface and reports available in 22 languages
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.
Individual design of reports
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 toolbox 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.
Connect portable measuring instruments and test boxes
You may use qs-STAT to transfer measurement data directly via serial interface (RS-232).
Automated data transfer of files provided from third-party systems to the Q-DAS database
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.
SAP QM-STI interface
Analyse the measured value information available in SAP
The "Statistical Data Interface (QM-STI)“ of SAP R/3's QM module helps you evaluate data that have already been saved in the SAP system in Q-DAS statistical software products. SAP transfers the data to be evaluated to Q-DAS via QM-STI interface. Now you use qs-STAT to start Q-DAS analyses.
