Process qualificationQ-DAS qs-STAT is for the evaluation and continuous improvement of industrial production processes, and is also available as a web-based product. Norms, standards and guidelines provide the necessary orientation in the process.
Visualisation of results
In order not to lose track of the wide variety of results and values, it is important to use suitable graphics, charts and tables.
Clearly understandable and significant graphics illustrate the calculated statistics and this kind of visual support makes it easy for users to identify critical processes quickly. Q-DAS qs-STAT always focuses on clarity to direct the users’ attention immediately to weak points and deviations. Summary graphics are an essential tool for the definition of corrective actions to optimise the process.
Different filters and selection functions help provide you with exactly those pieces of information you need.
Recording measurement and test data in SAP/R3 QM, Q-DAS qs-STAT is able to evaluate these data in the background. The resulting statistics, graphics and reports are displayed directly in SAP. Users are thus able to combine the advantages of Q-DAS statistics with the application of SAP.
Standards for Quality Management concretely require a confirmation for the eligibility of the applied software for the intended application before initial use, as well as for a continuous use.
Graphical user interface and reports available in 22 languages
qs-STAT 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.
