  • 5. 5 The PDCA cycle describes the phases of the continuous improvement process (CIP) and forms the basis of all quality management systems. The cycle comprises 4 elements: Plan - Do - Check and Act and is designed to promote a consistent and sustainable improvement of production processes. Plan: This phase involves analysis of the ACTUAL status, the de- velopment of improvement potentials and the compilation of conceptuala realization. Do: This phase embodies the practical realization of the con- cept, which is tested on a small scale using simple means and test equipment. Check: The results of the test run are checked and set as stan- dard. Act: The last phase involves wide-scale implementation of the new standard and regular monitoring by way of audits.

  • 6. 6 What are the Benefits of IBS AG Solutions? Our experience, which spans over 30 years, has evolved with each customer project and forms the backbone of our cross-industry and industry-specific Best Practice solutions designed to address all your corporate requirements. We offer a single, integrated solution that focuses on the areas of production, quality, traceability and compliance. A large number of production companies are aware of the wastage that occurs or is generated within their production facilities. The precise source of this wastage, however, often belies a vague assumption. Cost-saving and the sustainable improvement of competitiveness, rely on the knowledge of all information relevant to the production process. The IBS system supports continu- ous improvement of the production process. To IBS, a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) embod- ies more than just the planning and control, but the full use of machine capacities and resources and the control of variants. It also involves a reduction in inventories, lowering of rework costs, optimization of pro- duct development, integration and Product-in-Use processes, reject minimization and, last but not least, the complete traceability of products, components and batches. IBS solu- tions also close the information gap between ERP/PPS systems and the shop floor level. Potential benefits of the software include shorter pro- duction times, improved quality and lower costs. Machine and plant transparency enables faster reactions and sup- ports decision-making. MESA (the Manufacturing Enterprise Systems Association) estimates that the use of MES software can help companies achieve a 56 per cent reduction in cycle times. Furthermore, 50 per cent of all quality costs, which account for 5-8 per cent of corporate turnover, can be attributed to sub-standard quality control, poor quality man- agement and inadequate preven- tion measures (Source: McKinsey, 12/2009). Why IBS AG Solutions? Integrated client capability and multi-language options mean that our solutions are also suited to global ap- plication. Integration into an existing ERP environment and production-re- lated integration are just two of our key competences. Our intuitive solutions are scalable and can be expanded to meet your requirements. But bigger is not always better and as this is the case with process times, which our solu- tions help reduce. We also provide an integrated tool for standardized reporting and the ad-hoc analysis of current issues. More than 40 per cent of the Top 100 automotive companies put their faith in our solutions.

  • 12. 12 The quality of products and processes throughout all phases of the product life cycle is a prerequisite for the achievement of company targets. Quality therefore largely determines the competitiveness of all manufacturers. High quality standards require the integration of quality processes in all manufacturing companies. INTRODUCING QUALITY MANAGEMENT CAQ=QSYS Supports all Phases of the Product Life Cycle, including: Product Creation Product Manufacturing Product-in-Use CAQ=QSYS is a registered trademark of IBS AG.
  • 13. 13 CAQ=QSYS provides the optimum support of all processes, from the creation of customer-specific inspec- tion reports with individual charac- teristics from various manufacturing processes to documentation of the final inspection. The use of the CAQ=QSYS Concern and Complaint Management mod- ule enables complaint acquisition, INTRODUCING QUALITY MANAGEMENT The basis for high product and process quality is established in these areas. CAQ=QSYS supports these processes with modules: APQP/Project Management, FMEA, Control Plan, Process Flow Chart, Inspection Planning and Product Part Approval Process PPAP. Interfacing with PDM/ERP systems guarantee the consistency of the master data. Interfacing with all commercial CAD programs ensures efficient execution of the inspection planning and first sample/article inspection processes. CAQ=QSYS in research and development, construction and work scheduling CAQ=QSYS in the procure- ment, manufacturing and assembly processes Product manufacturing has always been a classic field of application for CAQ systems. Execution of the Incoming Goods Control with CAQ=QSYS, based on random sample and dynamic tables is an important aspect. Supplier assess- ment incorporates processes for the determination of product and/or quality delivery and the evaluation of delivery reliability. Subjective criteria, such as price-performance ratios or supplier reaction times can also be contributory. Inspections carried out within the product manufacturing are documented in the CAQ=QSYS SPC inspection module. This applies not only to inspections carried out during the product development, such as maturity level analysis, but also to in- spections monitored within the scope of statistical process control by way of quality control charts. The Gage Management module is a multi-phase CAQ=QSYS module. Gages are required for inspection planning in the Control Plan module and for the execution of inspections and are therefore subject to trace- ability documentation. CAQ=QSYS in the final inspection, service and sales analysis and evaluation. The timely processing of complaints is of partic- ular importance in the automotive in- dustry. The automatic portal request (supporting the VDA QDX standard format) plays an important role in this. The resulting evaluations and vulnerability analyses are of great significance to the further develop- ment of products and processes.
  • 14. 14 Product Creation In terms of quality, significant process optimizations is carried out in the product planning, development and construction phase. The product creation phase, which incorporates the system build-up and develop- ment configuration, prototype and production phases, is described in the APQP (Advanced Product Qual- ity Planning) reference handbook. Product Manufacturing A perfectly planned product requires procurement and production pro- cesses in order to achieve the de- sired quality. Irrespective of whether they supply raw materials, compo- nents or complex assemblies, sup- pliers must be monitored to ensure they adhere to supplier agreements. Process optimization in the pro- duction process means production preparation and production support, as an integral part of product manu- facturing. Product-in-Use A further phase of the product life cycle begins with the delivery of a product. From a quality point of view, Product-in-Use support is mainly car- ried out within the scope of customer management. This incorporates consulting, for effective product appli- cation and customer support in the event of quality problems. The exchange of information be- tween customers and suppliers is a major source of input in the product design process. The optimization and improvement of product and process quality are supported by current and future developments in terms of Les- sons Learned. THE PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE Advanced product quality planning comes into play in the planning, product design & development, pro- cess design & development, product and process validation and series production phases, as well as in feedback, assessments and correc- tive measures. With consistent use, development processes can be ac- celerated and teamwork optimized. KPIs are used to evaluate the pro- cesses. This includes figures such as ppm rates, Cpk values and defect pareto analyses. The track and trace of all quality data ensures the complete documentation of a product’s quality history. Today’s use of CAQ systems is shift- ing increasingly over to the product design phase. Practical experience has shown that, in the future, com- puter-aided QM systems will mainly be seen in the areas of product planning, product development and product construction. QS 9000, VDA and TS 16949 requirements prescribe the use of a CAQ system in the product devel- opment phase, for the full documen- tation and analysis of all relevant quality data.

  • 16. 16 Project Management PRODUCT CREATION Benefits The IBS project management solution supports the complete product development process, across all areas of the company, including research and development, construction and work preparation. The project management tool maps not only internal project work, but considers both the customer and the supplier. The administration of complex projects for new developments and change projects can also be carried out. Templates reduce the administration effort. The overall assessment of a project, from the milestones to the individual project phases of their individual activities, is shown in the form of a Gantt diagram. The core focus is action management, aimed at ensuring adherence to deadlines and due dates and recognising likely project postponements at an early stage and thus taking action to avoid them. The project management is linked to the advanced product online quality planning module to ensure that all data remains up to date. The project management also features cost controlling to enable TARGET/ACTUAL comparisons. Efficient visualisation of all phases of the product and advanced product quality planning processes Effective project control for cost optimisation and resource management Consistent actions monitoring within a and beyond projects Increased transparency for all those involved in the project Greater adherence to customer deadlines and schedules Avoidance of multiple inputs Reduction in change management effort/costs Optimisation of the advanced product quality planning process and the guarantee of continuous documentation of all relevant quality data The CAQ=QSYS project management tool ensures detailed monitoring of the individual project levels with the automatic identification of exceeded deadlines with control mechanisms and escalation levels.

  • 17. 17 PRODUCT CREATION Advanced Product Quality Planning with FMEA The FMEA module (Failure Mode and Effect Analysis) is used for the creation of various types of FMEA (system/ product/process) using a systematic procedure in the areas of development/assembly and process engineering. The combination of a product and a process FMEA into a hybrid FMEA enables the allocation of product and process characteristics, even at this early stage, in order to monitor the FMEA functions in terms of compliance. At the same time, this forms the basis for the automatic acceptance and generation of the control plan for the creation of the process flow chart. The IBS solution enables the definition of system elements, their functions and failures and the creation of links for the verification of failure consequences and causes and to induce their corrective actions or identifica- tion. The solution is rounded off by a graphical visualisa- tion function, risk analysis and a comprehensive range of evaluations. The import and export of FMEA structures is effected via the MSR FMEA format (based on XML). Benefits Adherence to a standardized nomenclature in accordance with advanced product quality planning standards (QS 9000, VDA, TS 16949) Basis for the efficient set-up of the Control Plan and Process Flow Chart Access to common master data Integrated actions management Feedback from the Product-in-Use phase (complaint/service) thanks to the automatic acceptance of defect data for assessment within the scope of the FMEA Thanks to CAQ=QSYS FMEA, defects can be analyzed prior to production and thus avoided. This leads to increased functional and product reliability. Photo source: Stoeber Antriebstechnik GmbH & Co.

  • 18. 18 PRODUKTENTSTEHUNGPRODUCT CREATION Advanced Product Quality Planning with APQP (FLOW CHART/CONTROL PLAN) Benefits The control plan describes the product and process quality of all processes, starting with the raw materials and all necessary process steps, ending with dispatch. Documentation of the plan, which shows reliable revi- sion information, grows in parallel with the development progress from the prototype and pre-series stage to the actual series. The FMEA structure and the process flow chart may both serve as inputs for automatic control plan creation. In addition to automatic creation from FMEA, the control plan can also be created by importing from a series of inspection plans. It is also possible to generate the respective inspec- tion plans for the series, for example: incoming goods, pre-production, production, assembly, final inspection - for all process- related inspections defined in the control plan. This is performed with the help of an export function. Integrated work flows guarantee the necessary consistency in the event of changes. Working with master data and the link with gage man- agement enables a high degree of standardization. Consequently, processes can be streamlined in terms of efficiency and the shop floor worker is provided with optimum support. Efficient creation of the control plan using import and export functions Optional automatic extrapolation of a process flow chart Integrated change management in Advanced Product Quality Planning, supported by integrated work flows Optimization of required processes for creation and maintenance Working with standards as a prerequisite for lean management/lean manufacturing CAQ=QSYS APQP addresses problems occurring in the early planning, design or process analysis phase. The structured procedure supports product quality and reduced development times and thus also costs.

  • 19. 19 PRODUCT CREATION Inspection Planning, including Graphical Components In the Inspection Planning module, the definition of all product and process-relevant inspection criteria for mapping the inspections is carried out for the following areas: First Sampling/First Piece Release Purchase parts/raw materials Production/assembly Labor Final inspection/quantity-based, random inspections Integration in the system as a whole is an important aspect in safeguarding the change management process. The master data thus also constitutes a central basis for inspection planning. The creation of inspection plans is conveniently support- ed with group and/or family inspection plans. The direct link of CAD drawings with the import of characteristics and the associated manual or automated setting of graphical inspection points, renders the inspection plan- ning process more efficient and supports production-ori- ented inspections. The graphical inspection planning module is well-suited to the visualisation of drawings in the mechanical industry and to the mapping of printed circuit board layouts in the electronics industry. Interfaces with all commercial CAD Benefits Processing of all inspection-relevant information Avoidance of duplicate activities and defect minimisation thanks to process-reliable data transfer of CAD drawing to the CAQ evaluation Inspection strategies and operating procedures from supplier to customer are rationalised and unified The Inspection Planning module is a core element of the CAQ=QSYS quality management system. To ensure product and process quality, inspection criteria for all quality-related company activities are defined in conjunction with the control plan. programs ensure graphical execution of the inspection planning and first article inspection processes. The work schedule or working step/operation-oriented inspection plans form the basis of the automatic generation of inspection plans from ERP orders, such as material bookings or production orders.

  • 20. 20 PRODUKTENTSTEHUNGPRODUCT CREATION Gage Management Benefits The gage management system ensures the management of all gage types (e.g. mechanical, electrical, test rigs and gages) and documents all procedures involved in the gage history (e.g. gage calibration, issue/return, repair). Gage selection in the creation of control plans/production control plans and inspection plans is a vital requirement in achieving standardized documentation of all relevant quality product and process data. The creation of individual reports in the variable list (inventory list, status list or inspection prompt, reminder list) ensures deadlines are monitored for each gage. Automatic escalation supports multiple levels. The gage inspection planning can also be based on the VDI/VDE/DGQ standard 2618. Documentation of the inspection results may be carried out by way of variable and attribute characteristics or by addition of the scanned calibration protocol to the history. This functionality is enhanced with extensive gage capability evaluations (precision, reproducibility, linearity). The following properties are also characteristics of the gage management module: Gage administration with the respective DIN standards and automatic determination of tolerances for rejects and “go side” Evaluation of the calibration in tabular and graphical form with information on suitability/usability Administration and monitoring of the gages used Additional administration of gages from the areas of occupational health and safety and environmental protection Support of advanced product quality planning with gage capability analyses The CAQ=QSYS gage management system module considerably reduces the effort required for gage monitoring and thus has a cost-reducing effect on the production process.

  • 21. 21 PRODUCT CREATION First Sample Inspection Benefits The IBS solution for the execution of first article / -PPAPs for customers or suppliers, supports the creation of forms in accordance with the VDA and QS 9000 standards and customer-specific requirements. It also supports the administrative management of reports and all other doc- umentation managed by the IBS solution in accordance with the respective presentation stage. Graphical inspection planning with the import of CAD data and the creation of inspection plans is often used for automatic stamping in customer sampling. Following execution of the measurement by the measuring device or other gage the measurement, val- ues are input or transferred using the data input module. In the event of supplier sampling the option exists to export the first sampling inspection plan in Excel format and to send this to the supplier. After its return along with the measurement values, this can then be imported to the IBS solution for documentation and analysis of the results. Automatic polling of the link between an incoming goods delivery and a supplier’s first article is an integrat- ed functionality. The administration of any required re-sampling and dead- line monitoring is also possible. Standardised documentation and administration of first samples Support of first sample templates in accordance with standards and customer specification Efficient first sampling execution thanks to integrated CAD interface with automatic drawing stamping Defect prevention by default procedure in the CAQ=QSYS first sampling inspection module ensures the long-term cooperation with customers and minimizes both quality costs and risks at an early stage.

  • 22. 22 PRODUKTENTSTEHUNGPRODUCT MANUFACTURING Incoming Goods Inspection Benefits Cost-saving measures often result in attempts to elim- inate or reduce incoming goods inspections. Incoming goods inspections make a considerable contribution to improving quality where quality problems arise as a result of internal or external defects. The incoming goods inspection supports, inter alia: Acquisition of the characteristic set to a particular inspection status and alignment with the inspection plan defaults Delivery evaluation with quantity acquisition Delivery, characteristic or time-related dynamics and the automatic generation of supplier complaints in NOK cases, help reduce inspection costs. Additional features include the creation of supplier inspection reports and la- bel printing for the identification of blocked/barred goods. The supplier is able to process the supplier inspection reports in the form of an online 8D report, via a supplier portal. This has the benefit of providing the latest available evaluations (e.g. for the inspection of recurrent defects) and at the simultaneously enabling direct monitoring of the actions initiated by the supplier. Comprehensive integration in the ERP/PPS system for generation of inspection orders based on booked incoming goods, feedback on usage and decisions with subsequent warehouse entry Link between delivery and released first article parts Management of special releases and design/dimensional deviations Inclusion of supplier agreements (just in time/just in sequence/ship to stock) for reduction of inspection costs Online communication with suppliers in case of delivery complaints. This saves costs and time and helps prevent defects. The use of CAQ=QSYS incoming goods control increas- es the efficiency of quality assurance actions. Costs and quality remain under control despite a low vertical range of manufacture, increased supplier involvement and com- plex supplier structures.

  • 23. 23 PRODUCT MANUFACTURING Supplier Management Benefits The quality criteria of a delivery is determined in the incoming goods control module. The transmission of reliability data from the ERP/PPS system allows for the transfer of further supplier assessment criteria. Deadline and quantity deviations are automatically detected using TARGET and ACTUAL data using defined rules. These criteria form the basis for supplier management and are updated with every delivery. Supplier-specific, subjective criteria can be defined and assessed over a defined period of time using the assessment matrix. This includes, for example, the supplier’s location, his price-performance ratio, his reaction in the event of com- plaints and user-definable criteria. The results of supplier audits are also documented, since audit management offers both online and offline acquisition. All information is visualized using scorecards. These can be sent to the supplier as a document by email or automatically made available at definable periods via the supplier portal. The supplier project management tool effectively sup- ports the latest theme of supplier qualification and the centralized storage of all supplier documentation, such as supplier agreements. KPI determination, including extrapolation of required actions Transparent presentation of all information for discussions with suppliers Assessment of product quality, delivery reliability and assessment matrix for subjective criteria Effective support with supplier qualification and development The supplier assessment module in CAQ=QSYS gives an up-to-the-minute overview of all quality data relating to the supplier and incoming goods. An objective comparison serves as a foundation for effective purchasing negotiations and is fundamental in the quest for continuous quality improvement.

  • 25. 25 PRODUCT MANUFACTURING Quality Process Management (QPM) Benefits QPM can be used within quality and laboratory areas of manufacturing companies, e.g. for raw material checks, production inspections, including interim inspections and final inspections. As a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), QPM effectively supports inspections carried out in service laboratories, such as research and development, applications technology, competitive analyses, environmental analysis or classical order-based analytics. Being a quality process management system, QPM doesn’t simply log the inspections of individual samples, but also the inspections of extremely complex samples or order structures, e.g. for complex individual inspections that comprise several components. QPM/LIMS provides support for: Analysis of orders for the administrative management of customer data Framework orders for grouping inspections that belong together yet contain different content and are defined via inspection profiles Laboratory orders for unique identification of the sample subject to additional inspection in terms of customer tolerances and based on customer specifications Process-related/in-process inspections in terms of statis- tical process control (SPC) are also realized with: The maintenance of quality control charts The verification of process-relevant criteria (inter alia intervention and warning limits, trend, run) Further functions enhance the LIMS functionality with: Sample / retain sample management Stability analyses Recipe management Certificate creation Resource, cost and expense management QPM/LIMS is an integrated quality and laboratory management system, combining quality and laboratory aspects as a single entity Validation and Audittrail support e.g. implementa tion of requirements in accordance with FDA part 11 Efficient support of all laboratory requirements, incl. complex inspection structures CAQ=QSYS QPM supports classical laboratory tasks, as well as process-related/in-process inspections related to statistical process control (SPC).

  • 26. 26 Quality Main Control Benefits The Main Control enables cross-departmental visualiza- tion of quality problems and provides a quick overview for the head of production, the foreman, the shift leader and the quality manager. The principle is simple: Inspection orders marked in red denote imperfect quality (process not under control and/ or not capable). Following the selection of an order defec- tive characteristics are shown in red in the next step. The available evaluations are characteristic-related, including control charts showing defect types, causes and actions. The control chart macro enables the simultaneous moni- toring of multiple characteristics. A scheduler enables the automatic update of these control charts and the respon- sible person is automatically warned of arising process violations by way of a work flow. Macros can also be defined for visualisation of the FPY. The First Pass Yield (FPY) is process KPI`s that show the percentage of parts in the production process tested as OK (defect-free) during the 1st inspection. All NOK parts related to of the FPY evaluation are classi- fied reject parts and are designated for rework. Transparent presentation/monitoring of the current quality situation in the production process and in the areas of incoming and outgoing goods controls Tool for the efficient monitoring of the aforementioned areas Preliminary stage for detailed data analysis, which is possible at any time thanks to the drill-down- functionality of the information network CAQ=QSYS Main Control increases transparency throughout the company.

  • 27. 27 Analysis Benefits The analysis of all data is the most important functionality of a computer-aided quality and production management system. Starting with the visualisation, KPIs are deter- mined, defined and assessed. The analysis forms the basis of the continuous improvement process, since it is here that vulnerabilities are detected and the respective actions initiated in order to optimize both the product and process. The module features compre- hensive graphical and tabular evaluations in the classical inspection areas such as incoming goods control, produc- tion inspections and outgoing goods control. Examples are: Control charts for all characteristics Defect collection cards Probability graphs Histograms Box plot method Statistical calculation Distribution tests The certified export interface with qs-stat further extends the range of possibilities. The module also offers a large number of process analysis functions, for which cross-order and cross-part measurement values can be selected, sorted, grouped and finally visualized and used for statistical purposes. Tool capability, for exam- ple, can therefore be monitored (using a sample of the same diameter for a product group) in order to ensure the manufacture of a particular characteristic on a cross-part basis. Supports the continuous improvement of product and process quality Provision of all statistical functions required by any user, from the shop floor level to top management, and is tailored to meet user-requirements KPIs form the backbone of corporate management today. They assist the company’s executives in estimating the economy and efficiency of the processes.

  • 28. 28 PRODUCT-IN-USE Concern and Complaint Management Benefits The concern and complaint management module is a powerful tool for the optimization of all supply chain processes in line with an integrated supply chain management process. The solution is shaped by cross-company customer-supplier communication and the internal problem-solving process, forming a basis for the continuous improvement process in terms of lean management/lean manufacturing. The comprehensive defect and complaint management solution is characterized by real-time, efficient commu- nication. This is enabled by complaint work flows, which activate immediate actions, sending direct information to certain areas of the company. This information is required for stock level investigations/stocktaking and defect anal- ysis. Complaint analysis may be carried out in accordance with the 8D procedure. In addition to describing the problem, this also includes the initiation of various types of action, a cause analysis and confirmation of efficiency. The defect cause analysis is complemented by a QM method assistant that supports the Ishikawa Method (cause/ef- fect) and the 5 Why methodology. Where the supplier is found to be the cause of internal or customer complaints, the procedure can be used to generate a supplier com- plaint. Various web portals and interfaces are available: Supplier portal for the online exchange with suppliers Simplified acquisition portal for the set-up of new processes by the customer or dealer. Integration in OEM portals with the exchange of the inspection report and the 8D report (in particular GM, AUDI and BMW) Considerable time-saving and processing time reduction as a result of the automation of information and complaint handling Comprehensive control mechanisms to ensure the punctual execution of actions Evaluations as a basis for lessons learned Transparency of cost acquisition CAQ=QSYS complaint handling module provides effective support with structured complaint handling procedures. Request handling within due dates ensures a higher level of customer satisfaction.

  • 29. 29 PRODUCT-IN-USE Audit Management Benefits The audit management module supports the execution of various types of external and internal audit, such as system or process audits. The main functions of the audit management module are: Basic audit planning and the derived audit program Audit fine planning incl. the sending of invitations Audit execution, incl. the acquisition of results and findings Creation and sending of the audit report Actions handling and monitoring Audit-related evaluations (e.g. based on VDA 6.3) and general evaluations, (e.g. actions fulfillment for each area audited) The set-up of the audit is simplified, as a result of the provision of standardized and user-definable question catalogues (e.g. TS 16949, process audit VDA 6 part 3, environmental audit ISO 14001, process audit VDA 6 part 7 and the support of self-assessments). The online audit acquisition option, including the option of execution for suppliers and subsequent import in the productive database optimizes the audit process. The definition of necessary actions and their assessment in the audit module or via a web application, enables online feedback on the action by the individual responsible, thus contributing to greater work efficiency. The module is completed by automated actions and deadline monitoring. Supports external and internal audits Transparency and traceability of the individual working steps (operations) Reduction in documentation and archiving effort Transparent overview of all pending actions Escalation in failure to meet deadlines Immediate information, sent by email to the responsible employee Comprehensive evaluations in the CAQ=QSYS audit module allow conclusions to be drawn on product quality trends. This module therefore also contributes to the continuous improvement process.

  • 30. 30 One of the main demands made of CAQ systems is their integration capability into existing systems at higher level. With its CAQ software, IBS AG offers a fully-integrated, bidirectional solution for the exchange of all relevant order data, guaranteeing the smooth flow of information, including the alignment of master data. The link to exist- ing PPS and ERP systems is realized via interfaces with SAP, infor, PSI, Baan and Navision. CAQ=QSYS can be implemented individually and inde- pendently of existing PPS systems, with various types of connection. The system interfaces are implemented in accordance with the customer’s existing IT landscape and various technologies. In addition to file-based data exchange, direct database connections are also provid- ed. Microsoft Biztalk is used as middleware. Data exchange with all commercial PPS and ERP systems Full integration of production and quality management in the customer’s operations Integration and automatic alignment of databases - reduces administration effort INTEGRATION OF CAQ=QSYS WITH ERP The following data is usually exchanged with the ERP level: Master Data Movement data, such as order data, feedback from incoming goods, production and complaints The IBS ERP interface guarantees standardised data stock, reducing administrative and organizational effort. In addition to ERP/PPC interfaces, IBS AG also offers integration scenarios with PLM (Product Lifecycle Man- agement) systems and to further co-existing systems and solutions.
  • 31. 31 CAQ=QSYS enables the simplified connection of com- plex measuring devices, reducing manual inspection effort and the associated inspection costs. Interface to superior management systems is of particular importance in ensuring reliable data exchange between the various information systems within the company. The acquisition and processing of data from subordinate systems, e.g. from gages, measuring machines, analysis equip- ment or production facilities, is one of the main require- ments of a quality management system. Supports the standard OPC format Event-controlled acquisition of data and machine statuses Universal configuration of various data formats Prevention of transmission errors, as a result of automated data acquisition Data is available centrally and in real-time for analysis and control improvement for process effectiveness INTEGRATION OF CAQ=QSYS WITH THE SHOP FLOOR IBS offers the connection of numerous gage types, based on standards such as Digimatic, BCD, IEEE or RS232, via the connection of multiplexers (e.g. MUX 50, Stein- wald, IBR, Bobe, Fluck, Gage Talker). The connection of more complex gages, analysis devic- es and testers, such as 3D measuring devices, optical measuring devices, is also made possible. A further option exists, enabling the acquisition and processing of process data (e.g. from PLCs such as Siemens S5, S7) directly from the production facility in order to speed up the availability of data at every station. The transfer can be fully-automatic, occurring in the background, or inter- active, during online operation.
  • 32. 32 The reporting function integrated within the quality management system, is based on the required quality standards. It serves as a helpful and efficient analysis and control function for business processes in all departments of the company. The IBS solutions offer the user defined reports. These can be used without modification to meet the company requirements. The Report Builder then comes into action. The reports provided can be used as a guide for other reports. In addition to the reports included in the IBS suite, the user may also choose to use the Personal Reports function. This enables the creation of your own, flexible reports. From the context of the individual applications, information can be transferred to the templates (already created by the user) (for example: MS Office templates in Excel or Word) and used for the desired report. The user also has the option to expand upon this information by adding information contained in the database.
