Modular quality management solutions for your industry
The software consistently supports you throughout all analyses, inspections, and examinations in the laboratory and lays the groundwork for comprehensive sample management. Whether preparing, gathering, and distributing samples or performing statistical analyses and creating control charts: CAQ.Net®’s Compact.Net module provides you with all the tools you require for data acquisition, preparation, and evaluation in the laboratory. In order to ensure data security and the various traceability requirements, the software also contains tools for batch-tracking and analysis specification. Compact.Net furthermore supports you throughout the management of deviating analysis results such as Out-of-Specification (OOS) Results, Out-of-Expectation (OOE) Results or Out-of-Trend (OOT) Results.
The integrated certificate generator in Compact.Net allows you to automatically generate certificates directly after an inspection has been completed. For this purpose, the software gathers all the batch information of relevant inspections that is contained in the database and generates a tailor-made certificate accordingly. This certificate may also contain individual raw material certificates such as Certificates of Analysis (CoA). Additional validation inspections after the laboratory analysis, fully automated label printing or the automatic multi-language creation of batch-related certificates conclude the functionalities of the software.
The Qualify.Net training management module supports you during the planning, execution, and documentation of all training-related matters in your company. Apart from assisting during the documentation of all existing qualifications and planning of future employee trainings, it is primarily the consistent target/actual comparison regarding required and available qualifications that provides a significant reduction of the training-related workload. Just a few clicks allow you to fulfil key documentation duties and create an expressive and easily maintainable qualification and training database. The qualification matrix in the software furthermore allows you to, for instance, precisely trace which employee requires training in which area and at what point in time said training is due. This means you can consistently monitor and document any type of training and qualification – regardless of whether you are dealing with safety trainings, language tuitions, technical schoolings, or any other type of training. Powerful e-learning capabilities round off the profile off this module.
Manage and Calibrate Equipment
As the reliability of information is determined right at the point of its initial collection, perfectly functioning equipment is essential for correct measurements. That is why gauge and maintenance management is applied in order to ensure that the employed devices are always correctly calibrated and in sound working order. It furthermore organises the acquisition, application, and maintenance of all equipment. Within CAQ.Net® these aspects are covered by the module PMM.Net. Apart from providing real-time monitoring and documentation of the state of equipment as well as its location of use, and calibration status, these modules ensure that only devices which are available and in sound working order are implemented in measuring processes – thus eliminating the possibility that faulty or unsuitable equipment is used.
Total Document Control
An efficient and effective document management system is vital in order to successfully tackle the documentation duties of regulating standards. Create, maintain, control, and archive all your documents with just one program. The software QBD.Net can be fully embedded in your existing MS Office environment, allowing you to continue to work with the programs you are familiar with and use QBD.Net to control all document monitoring and maintenance processes in your laboratory and company. Amongst a host of other functions, QBD.Net includes sophisticated escalation management, project tracking, document access control, and thus facilitates a fully paper-free documentation.
CAQ.Net® is a management system that fluently communicates with other IT-systems and facilitates the mutual transfer of data between systems. Hence, with CAQ.Net®, the idea of data transparency does not stop at the CAQ-system, as the CAQ-system is also connected directly to the ERP-system. A standard interface transfers master and dynamic data between the two systems. This means that all article master data is synchronized and that incoming goods inspections are automatically logged on in the CAQ-system as soon as new incoming goods are registered by the ERP-system. The direct communication between the two systems thereby greatly increases the overall process efficiency in the company.
