Improved web reporting interface gives real-time access to centralized manufacturing data

Web Reporter offers easy-to-use interface to access complete quality data, centralized manufacturing data and library of standard reports from anywhere in the enterprise. Sciemetric Instruments released of the latest version of its proprietary analytical software, QualityWorX, which includes an improved web reporting interface that gives all users real-time access to centralized manufacturing data.

Sciemetric Instruments released of the latest version of its proprietary analytical software, QualityWorX, which includes an improved web reporting interface that gives all users real-time access to centralized manufacturing data.

QualityWorX software tools automate the storage, archiving, retrieval, analysis and reporting of critical manufacturing data captured on the plant floor. The software enables collection and analysis of production data to demonstrate proof of compliance for parts made. Determine trends as a means to proactively identify production improvements, quickly address quality issues and increase productivity. Reporting on quality is a challenge that many manufacturers face because they lack the tools to effectively bring together the production data and must rely on time-consuming approaches.

This new version includes an improved Web Reporter reporting function that makes manufacturing data housed in the centralized QualityWorX database available across the network through a web browser in a user-friendly interface. This simple but powerful interface, accessed over local or wide-area networks, makes manufacturing data available to technicians and managers alike, according to the company. The reports provide insight on quality and throughput and enable some drill-down to determine the cause of issues affecting them.

To produce reports to support either internal quality initiatives or regulatory requirements, manufacturers no longer have to gather data from disparate sources and generate time-consuming manual reports, the company said. With Web Reporter, the pertinent information can be quickly and easily accessed from the QualityWorX database and presented in an easy-to-understand format. An extensive library of standard reports is included in the core software. In just a few clicks, even non-technical managers can create powerful reports including First Time Yield, Summary Report, Trend Browser, Failure Report, Failure Pareto, Repair Traffic and Defect Pareto. 

When used with Sciemetric’s sigPOD test stations, the hardware and software combine to create unparalleled visibility into manufacturing processes, and users are able to gain the full value of process signature technology. The methodology – capturing and then analyzing the unique process signatures of critical manufacturing processes – provides complete visibility into manufacturing processes, which lowers failure rates, quickly determines root causes of defects, shortens test-cycle times and improves manufacturers’ ability to conduct selective, rather than sweeping, recalls. Detailed records of end-to-end manufacturing data prove that products meet internal standards and support regulatory compliance.

QualityWorX can also be connected to third-party test stations and PLC networks. Regardless of the hardware components selected – either the plug and play family of sigPOD test stations or proprietary test devices from other vendors – test stations can be added or deactivated in QualityWorX without any production downtime. Because the application is based on an SQL database and has been developed using open standards such as XML and OPC, all test devices can take full advantage of the storage and analysis power of QualityWorX.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
