Planning, monitoring, evaluation In the intranetfahigen control of the software can test orders for inspections during production not only planned, but quality management of supervised also by all PCs of the Department. The whole production structure is represented on the screen, so parts and test plans can be tracked and associated in the running production process. Based on the the iqs test planning test plans created by using the desired control charts are generated automatically. The evaluation of samples always informed about the quality of the production. Although offers the module IQ SPC extensive evaluation possibilities such as machine tool, nest -, batch – or order-related to, certain statistical Evaluations of the test data at plant 5 but continue to be about qs-STAT by the company Q-the. While however before introduction of iqs SPC an employee exclusively worked, to enter the measured values in the statistics system, SPC data iqs now automatically transmitted via the DFQ data format to QA STAT.

Measurable benefits the benefits that the use of new software installed, is clearly measurable. A cooler engine, for example, consists of a variety of items. Inspections during production has been already here in the production of precursors, costs could be avoided by the further processing of defective parts. The process is controlled before an error is created or produced by Committee. So only the installation of items with incorrect length prior to introduction of iqs SPC a common mistake resulted in high cost of scrap. Through the use of the software today no scrapping costs more. “Also the error wrong type” has been completely eliminated. In the production of commercial vehicles modules could the error rate by a factor of 10 has been reduced.

The ppm numbers relating to pipes and Pressworks to this factor has fallen by as well. Consistent monitoring and control of the processes, as well as compliance with the quality control circle has brought the implementation of the zero-error strategy, in the factory of 5 within reach. Higher customer satisfaction customer satisfaction also has benefited the new software. Any claims much is now faster track which batch numbers of a complaint are affected, the error and its formation period exactly distinguish itself up. Also the opinions on complaints can be answered now not only more accurate, but above all also much faster: an employee needed to comprehensively analyze an error, once a week, all information, and also customer-specific parameters are already after a short time. So, also includes compliance with the inspection intervals can be traced easily. In addition, all customer documents at your fingertips are always quickly and easily available. Outlook inspections during production with the module IQ SPC has to produce Behr of his vision with 0 ppm and to reach a value of 100%, a good deal closer. A high degree of standardization and shortest cycle times were achieved by focusing on the production processes. The quality management systems ISO 9001:2000, ISO/TS 16949 and Ford Q1, after which, Behr is already certified, underline these high quality standards. The next steps in relation to the inspection during production are the connection of also the latest machines on the iqs of SPC, as well as the ability to stop the production process in the absence of a test interval automatically.
