Quality

Highest quality level in your plant

ANT Quality & SPC is the comprehensive management of the quality control process that takes place during production.

ANT Quality & Statistical Process Control guarantees the top level in the automation of the execution of scenarios of tests and their connection with the production.

It ensures reliable and timely control, direct assessment and qualitative qualification, as well as document and records the process. The system allows for automatic reporting of process tests, defects and it’s causes based on data from industrial automatics. The client settles quality criteria scenarios in case of the necessity to control in quantity, time or quality intervals. Each criterion may be saved in the measurement laboratory.

Mobile Inspections

Thanks to this solution you can reach automatically all necessary data from the technology process. ANT Quality & SPC allows for registration of repeatable procedures in the system. All data can be filled up with particular measurements, test results, pictures or movies. The registration of data entered by the operators ensures automatic reading from measuring tools. The measurement authorization is carried out by an authorized specialist logged in by an ID card.

 

The system allows for supplementing qualitative data with individual measurements, test runs, photos and videos. If the test has not been done, our solution will remind of quality control registering factors such as time, the number of controls or production cycles. It may also force the complete the test process.

Controlled products may be visualized with marked places of the control thanks to interactive applications with entering data options. Samples registration and marking options before sending them to the laboratory.

ANT Quality & SPC supports also the quality specialists by mobile inspections. Using mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets the specialists may enter quality control data during flight inspections. It allows on control of raw materials, packages and ready products stored in magazines. The module supports the managing and distribution of products technologically advanced products such as automotive industry components.

Statistical Process Control

Detect tendencies to exceeding limit values in your products to avoid loses.

Each product is connected with limits and values or statistic samples. The system indicates tendencies to exceeding limit values and register them with a description of reasons. There is also an option of escalation of limit values exceed with stopping the whole production line. Based on quality control data, the system decides to reject the product, redirects it to reparation or changing quality class. The data processing process is visualization with product qualification engages the production crew to detailed data control thanks to the graphic visualization of components.

All quality parameters, indicators, and quality control results are saved in the database. The system imports of product quality parameters from ERP, PLM or other systems with settings of test device parameters for each product. All measuring data is registered and connected with the traceability database. The results of quality control and SPC measurements are reported on charts, diagrams with an option of export to Excel spreadsheets. All data can be copied to the spare database with measurement indicators and archived for many years.

Traceability & Labeling

The solution is used to create the whole process and product history – from entering raw material to the ready product in the storage with tracking all parameters during the manufacturing operations. Every stage of manufacturing is registered. Traceability is also a very important asset for your current and future clients guaranteeing to reach top standards of quality.

ANT Traceability uses tracking and registration of batch production to monitor production efficiency. Being integrated with ERP, the system tracks raw materials, semi-finished products and finished products using barcode or RFID labels in an automated or standardized way. The identification of products is based on logistic conveyors labeling: pallets, collection containers, transport pallets. Traceability prevents permanent marking of the product or conveyors with a label or RFID tag verifying the process correctness and admission for further operations based on the traceability data collected: product rejection, return to a new operation, redirection to a corrective operation or additional quality control.

The implementation of the traceability system not only serves to meet the requirements of the recipient but above all directly affect the increase of production efficiency.
