View Critical Quality Control Data in Real Time
Reducing cost of poor quality begins with actionable data delivered quickly and accurately. QC Weigh software achieves that by capturing quality control data as it is taken and transmits the data to your desktop. Using dropdown menus, you can fi lter the data by several different variables; a few of those variables are date range, product id, product line, and workstation. On-screen display is not the only way QC Weigh displays production data. At an interval that you choose, the software will generate a .PDF formatted report organized by product line, sample number, and product. This report will arrive in your e-mail inbox, delivering your company’s QC data to your desktop or with a smart phone – the palm of your hand. These QC control charts are a valuable snapshot of production performance for that day.
Quality Control Data That You Can Trust
Quality control data is often collected the same way it has been since the beginning of the industrial revolution, using pen or pencil and paper. While this method is easy to perform, it’s known to be inaccurate and the pages and pages of hand scrawled characters, make it almost impossible to spot patterns and pinpoint manufacturing problems. Quite often, handwritten records show that the product is always the same weight, when in reality that is impossible. Missed weighments mean that production equipment is not being adjusted to keep products in tolerance. These quality issues, part of the overall Cost of Poor Quality (CoPQ), can quickly add up to 5-30% of a company’s gross sales. Inaccurate QC forms make the managing and understanding of how to improve product quality an impossible task. Increase your plant’s profi ts with accurate digital records captured and archived by QC Weigh.
Easy to Configure and Use
Configuring QC Weigh and the 2200CW Scale is an almost effortless task thanks to the drop-down menus and easy to understand program prompts. Product parameters for each product and scale operator IDs are entered into QC Weigh. Each product has parameters for checkweigh tolerances, product description, ID, number of weighments, and time between samples. The product data and scale operator IDs are downloaded into the 2200CW Checkweigher that is connected to your Local Area Network (LAN) via Ethernet or Wireless Ethernet. QC Weigh can be installed on Windows PC or a network server. If it’s installed on PC, the standard database can be installed on a network server that is backed up on a regular interval.
During the manufacturing process, the employee responsible for sampling product weight is prompted to enter the product ID and their operator ID. Requiring operator IDs keeps the employee accountable for taking QC weight samples at the predetermined intervals. Management can use these records to track and evaluate employee work performance. When the scale operator logs in, the scale displays the seconds until the next weight sample is required. Once the scale timer reaches zero, the large red LED display will read LATE. In a noisy or busy work environment, the 2200CW can be equipped with an optional external alarm, the scale operator will be notifi ed with a sound or red light tower. For processes requiring multiple samples, the employee is prompted through the process of weighing each sample.
