Ensure Customer Satisfaction with CEBOS’ MQ1 Inspection Software and SPC Software

It is critical that quality products are consistently produced to ensure high customer satisfaction. However, managing the information necessary to ensure that quality technicians and inspectors always have the correct information and tools from which to conduct their work, is quite challenging. Some of these challenges include:

  • Ensuring that inspection data matches the latest quality or control plan information from the approved planning documentation
  • The amount of time it takes to flow specification and procedural changes through all required documentation
  • The ability to see which step in the process one is at with graphical indicators
  • Tying inspection results directly to the corrective action or non-conformance process
  • The amount of time it takes to manually enter inspection results
  • The inability to create charts/graphs to monitor the process/products in real-time

The CEBOS MQ1 Data Collection software was created to solve these challenges. The Data Collection module enables users to quickly and easily document inspection results in a centralized, integrated system. Inspection data can easily be configured to flow directly from the CEBOS Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) module where the quality or control plan is created and approved. As changes are made to the quality documentation, the inspection plan is automatically updated; ensuring the documentation being used on the floor is what is approved by the customer! The Data Collection module also enables real time statistical process control and other analysis capabilities ensuring product is produced within specification tolerances. Linking other aspects of the quality management system into the inspection process, such as the corrective action and non-conformance processes through the CEBOS MQ1, ensures that there is a closed-loop continuous improvement process in place.

Benefits of CEBOS Inspection Software and SPC Software

  • Ensures that data collection is done to the most current control plan revision through direct ties to CEBOS’ APQP and drawing control modules
  • Increases accuracy of inspection information through built-in data validation checking and reminder mechanism’s
  • Enables positive means to document process problems through user configured, automated,  non-conformance functionality
  • Reduces messy paperwork and minimizes data storage space
  • Enables quick retrieval with the ability to analyze inspection data and generate inspection documentation and statistics for customers upon request.
  • Enables configurable trigger events upon data collection “out of control” results, such as email alerts, text message alerts, NCR creation, etc., ensuring others in the organization are notified of such critical results
