It all starts with the inspection plan

Software: Quality Assurance / SPC
Online monitoring of all inspection orders via customizable QM dashboards

Using Compact.Net means that you can apply all your company’s quality knowledge and information during the inspection planning process, as it enables you to directly include existing data from FMEAs, CAD-drawings, control-plans, or initial samples. Compact.Net provides standard-compliant incoming goods inspection plans that facilitate adherence to ISO 2859 and ISO 3951 in all their modes (normal, increased, reduced, etc.), flexible skip-lot-methods, or freely definable and process-accompanying inspections. All of this is available for everything from individual requirements inspections, freely definable interval inspections with any number of qualitative or quantitative characteristics, to mathematically complex and precisely formulated statistical process control (SPC). Of course these inspections include detailed and scalable test methods, which fully automatically check your processes for outliers, trends, runs, or any other type of effect and alert you or a predefined group of persons if process or tolerance thresholds are violated or any other type of process anomaly occurs.

Use the software to freely design sampling plans, define new and unlimited characteristic specifications with the integrated mathematical and statistical formulae, or apply the variety of predefined characteristic types available – from simple ok/not ok decisions to sophisticated and structured classifying list characteristics. Integrate graphics, videos, drawings, etc. into your inspection plans, or refer to further applicable internal/external documents, audits, job and procedural orders, etc. in order to provide the individual processor or inspector with the information he requires at any point in time.

The frequency of the inspection can also be defined individually. Apart from standard inspection frequencies, Compact.Net also allows you to apply so-called shift-models. These enable you to tailor the inspection intervals to precisely correspond to the work-shifts of your employees. Once the inspection plan has been completed, the software allows you to test it in a realistic test environment (sandbox) prior to putting it into practice.

Integrated CAD-Linkage

Software: Quality Assurance / SPC
Integrated CAD viewer with automated seals/stamps for drawing characteristics

The optional graphic inspection planning module CAD-Link.Net can be fully integrated into Compact.Net. This allows you to adopt relevant inspection characteristics from directly within your CAD-drawings. New versions of CAD-drawings can also be immediately compared with those contained in your inspection plan.

All necessary characteristics data and specifications (measurement, shape, and position tolerances, symbols and comments) are adopted and transferred with the simple click of a button. This automatic data exchange ensures referential integrity and eliminates the likelihood of data transmission errors.

Full integration into existing IT-environments

All process parameters that are gathered in the production environment, which have an impact on the quality during the manufacturing process, can be included in the inspection plan. Temperature, humidity, or any other type of data that is gathered by your machines can thereby be used as additional source of information during inspections.

A good example for this is the connection between Compact.Net and the ALS MES-system of the injection moulding machine manufacturer ARBURG. The seamless networking of Compact.Net and ALS ensures comprehensive and transparent documentation of the entire injection moulding production process. The machine parameters can be logged and transmitted to Compact.Net for each production cycle relating to a job order. The machine parameters and the individual produced part results are made available in a common database and can then be evaluated and cross-examined.

Inspection schemes and article-specific characteristic specifications

 Software Tool: Quality Assurance / SPC
The graphic inspection data acquisition function allows you to graphically acquire and evaluate any number of characteristics directly onsite at the object – also via intuitive touchscreen interface

Different products often have a lot of similarities and characteristics and often only differ with regard to nominal values or with regard to the precise composition of different components. In order to keep the inspection planning process as simple yet flexible as possible, Compact.Net includes family inspection plans, module-characteristics, characteristic-templates, and automated inspection schemes which can be used to precisely depict the individual processes and production methods in your company.

The usage of inspection schemes means that only one inspection plan / family inspection plan is created and the scheme dictates which characteristics need to be checked in which cases. This can also be prompted directly by the ERP-system via customer requests or product specifications.

The possibilities achieved by only having to individually determine characteristics such as the nominal value only when the inspection order is actually logged on, mean that products which only differ in certain details can be conveniently and flexibly managed and inspected via one shared family inspection plan. The specifications can be defined during the manual log-on of an inspection order or be adopted directly from the ERP-system.

Fluently communication with other IT-systems

Within today’s information technology, there are few aspects that are as important as the effective and efficient interaction between different systems: the bidirectional exchange of information is an absolute necessity in order to be able to conduct successful data management. Compact.Net is a management system that fluently communicates with other IT-systems and facilitates the mutual transfer of data between systems. The comprehensive connectivity functions ensure that you can connect Compact.Net to virtually any type of IT-system. The bidirectional connection between Compact.Net and your ERP-system, for instance, improves information-flow, reduces data-maintenance effort, and prevents isolated IT-solutions.

Compact.Net allows you to profit from the advantages of the CAQ.Net® shared data-platform and the standardized interfaces to ERP/MES and other IT-systems. Directly access complaint data at inspection plan level, use the experience gathered in your FMEA or risk analysis projects, adopt production data and apply it to your inspection plans, or formulate PPAP/PPF compliant initial sample reports in conjunction with the software EMP/PPAP.Net.

The production-accompanying and in-process measuring techniques are seamlessly linked to all other CAQ.Net® software modules. Hence, the planning data in your CAQ system (quality planning, order data etc.) is immediately available online to all measurement computers you use. Vice-versa, the inspection data you gather is available online to all other CAQ.Net® modules for further processing and comprehensive quality management analyses (e.g. for dashboard display or complaint management).

Precisely adjustable measurement value acquisition

Software System: Quality Assurance / SPC
Inspection data acquisition via protocol-ready measuring devices

Compact.Net can be precisely adjusted to meet the requirements of your production facility. Whereas it offers a vast variety of functions and settings during the production plan compilation and final analyses stages, the processing interface can be reduced to only the most necessary details when actually conducting the inspection data acquisition processes at shop-floor level. This means that the inspector can concentrate on what is really necessary at this point in time and only view the part of the big picture that he is immediately involved in.

Usability is furthermore increased via the implementation of acoustic/visual signalling mechanisms and hardware. These indicate the necessity of an inspection with the simplest of measures. The user-guidance model with its assistants, clearly structured inspection sites with connected gauges and expressive QM-dashboards at production level also significantly increase the user-acceptance throughout the entire company.

Data Acquisition – Online, Offline, Manual or via Automated Measuring Machines

Data pens, touchscreens, or peripheral data acquisition via smartphone or tablet PC: the integration of the CAQ Enhanced Mobility Concept in Compact.Net and a variety of web-applications allows you to tear down the physical boundaries of conventional quality management.

  • Supports wireless, barcode, and transponder technologies.


Software System: Quality Assurance / SPC / LIMS

LIMS – Laboratory Information Management System

The software consistently supports you throughout all analyses, inspections, and examinations in the laboratory and lays the groundwork for comprehensive sample management in a modern LIMS. Whether acquiring and managing samples in the foodstuffs-industry, planning, developing, and selecting methods and experiments in the pharmaceuticals business or consistently analysing and monitoring pool parameters during galvanization operations: Compact.Net enables you to manage the sheer quantity of information and abide by the strict data security regulations that the research and in-house laboratories of virtually all industries face. Compact.Net 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 all the way to individual raw material certificates such as Certificates of Analysis (CoA).

Analysis

Whether preparing, gathering, and distributing samples or performing statistical analyses and creating control charts: Compact.Net 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.

Certificates

Software System: Quality Assurance / LIMS Certificates
Automatically generate certificates directly after an inspection has been completed

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 product/process 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).

These raw material certificates can either be created directly via Compact.Net or be conveniently uploaded by your customer and fed into the database. Once it has been generated, the certificate can be made available to a predefined internal group or sent to your customer or supplier – fully automatically if required. Of course it can also be printed on a pre-specified printer, e-mailed, uploaded to the Intranet/Internet, or be posted in the MyCAQ.Net web-portal.

Potential Analysis

The potential analysis function in Compact.Net allows you to compare the inspection data of a current order and match it with other suitable orders or other articles. This applies if e.g. the production process could not meet the specifications of the original article, but may match the specifications of a different article. Hence, the data can also be transferred directly to a new inspection order for a different article. This function thereby supports you during the analysis of interim-products and allows you choose a different final product that matches the actual measurement values.

Analysis, Evaluation, Statistics

The software Compact.Net includes sophisticated, flexible, and highly powerful tools for analysis and statistical evaluation. These provide everything you need to monitor, control, and improve your processes. Let Compact.Net monitor your processes and alert you in case of process violations or extraordinary developments in your process workflow. Consolidate specific content of your database either graphically or in shape of list evaluations and define filters that govern which data should be returned in what cases. Use the cross-references applied to acquired information and examine your data with regard to parallels and interdependencies to highlight weaknesses or determine solutions for sustainable quality and system improvements.

Turn Data into Information

Create your own evaluation library and use it as a companywide quality control panel or make it accessible to a select group of users. Integrate logic functions into table-fields or combine database entries in order to uncover hidden information. Export lists, data, or graphic evaluations to MS Office applications or other software programs and process data via the integrated graphic and analysis tools whose mode of function is the same as it is in your familiar MS Office programs. Whether you require simple Pareto analyses or sophisticated statistical tests, Compact.Net provides you with everything you need for conducting comprehensive process management. The software thus enables you to advance from mere measurement data management to intelligent process management and facilitate sustainable process improvements in your company.

100 % Traceability – Down to the Minutest Measurement Detail

Software System: Quality Assurance Web
View inspection order values in the web-application

The far reaching batch, serial number, nest, and sample tracking functions in Compact.Net ensure that no measurement values and no decisions are lost. The comprehensive traceability throughout all levels of production and quality assurance allow you to fulfil the traceability obligations contained in a variety of applicable standards and guidelines. When was what part used in which assembly group? What time-frame was what batch processed in what products and who were the products shipped to when? What was the exact quality-status of the process, when a specific batch was produced? What qualitative characteristics were considered during a specific assembly group and what assembly site was used?

These are all questions that arise when complaints or damages are dealt with or evaluations of production processes are conducted. The software Compact.Net provides you with the information you need to answer all these questions at the simple click of a button – no manual searching or analysis of handwritten notes required.

The flexible batch management solutions allow you to document the production, application, and movement/storage information of every one of your products. In order to facilitate this, Compact.Net supports all contemporary methods of data entry such as QR-codes, NFC-tags, barcodes, mobile/stationary readers or wireless input devices etc. and intelligent interfaces ensure that data is always sent to the location it is required at – this applies all the way down to the minutest measurement value. All of this together vastly increases transparency and enables a 100 % level of traceability.
