High QA Inspection Manager brings a new way of thinking to Quality. It starts with the basic part drawing or model, takes you through building a trusted set of data, setting up your inspection plan, identifying critical and important dimensions, collecting inspection results and SPC data, then building your reports. The comprehensive application brings an all-in-one solution to your quality department.
All-in-One Manufacturing Quality Management System
One-Click 2D/3D Automation Autoballooning and GD&T
High QA Inspection Manager one-click automation starts with autoballooning and GD&T extraction from your 2D drawings and 3D models with PMI, then builds a complete bill of characteristics for the part. IM automatically adds missing 3D models and PMI data. You can switch between metric or inches, setup the fully integrated SPC and build in-process inspection plans on the same platform. Import inspection results into High QA Inspection Manager automatically from CMM, VMM, and arm vendors. Enter shop floor data from other gauges and tools with a fully integrated tablet application.
In-Process and Final Inspection Plans
High QA Inspection Manager provides the framework to establish a common set of standards and language for the manufacturing and quality departments to communicate effectively. The common language reduces downstream interpretations that often contribute to user data entry errors. This feature also eliminates redundant efforts, minimizes material waste and ensures that accurate and trusted data is available. Real-time alerts enable appropriate corrective action to prevent unnecessary waste.
Users create individual in-process and final inspection plans as needed. Each plan is a unique PDF file with the specific information needed at that step.
High QA Inspection Manager is a comprehensive and paperless Quality Management System. Printed process documentation and reports are things of the past. High QA Inspection Manager enables users, based on permissions, to read and enter inspection results with the click of a button on a tablet or PC. All inspection results are automatically stored in a convenient, accessible, centralized database. As there are still many organizations that still rely on paper documentation, High QA Inspection Manager enables entering process information into its forms. High QA Inspection Manager will relay these Excel\CSV files automatically to the database, and all of the documentation can be printed out as well.
Automated SPC with Realtime Analysis and Alerts
High QA Inspection Manager’s integrated SPC package is an integral module of High QA All-in-One Manufacturing Quality Management System. High QA Inspection Manager SPC enables statistical data collection for in-process and final part inspection routines. Unlike other SPC programs, this module enables users, with minimal training, to set up the statistical process in just a few clicks of the mouse. With High QA Inspection Manager’s automated data collection, results are entered directly to the central database that automatically harvests the data into SPC results, charts, and reporting. High QA Inspection Manager supports the AQL standard and presents dynamic table samplings accordingly.
Integrated Tools & Gage Management
Tool & Gage management is an additional unique, integrated module in High QA Inspection Manager. It is one of the most critical elements to enable trusted inspection results either within your facility or from an outside supplier. High QA Inspection Manager Tool & Gage Management enables automated inspection tool category assignments based on the automated feature recognition from the 2D drawings or 3D models. Bluetooth, wireless, and wired inspection tools are supported seamlessly and do not require any external hardware or communication protocols. The High QA Inspection Manager Tool & Gage module provides scheduled calibration time alerts well in advance so that important calibration duties are always maintained. As such, High QA Inspection Manager Tool & Gage Management prevents getting – manually or automatically – inspection results from out of calibration tools. The module also manages and tracks tool and gage inventories, storage locations, and the most current users – eliminating wasteful time spent searching for tools.
Automatic Import of Inspection Results
Import your inspection results from CMMs, VMMs, measuring arms, Bluetooth wireless devices, wired tools, manual gages, micrometers, and more – with just a one-button click. High QA Inspection Manager automatically supports whatever tools you use to measure parts in real-time, in batch or manual mode, and creates non-conformance reports automatically. One-click automation creates FAI, PPAP and other reports in minutes rather than hours. This all-in-one integrated manufacturing quality management solution enables real-time shop floor SPC for dynamic inspection reporting and triggers alerts to prevent lost time and wasted materials.
Shop Floor Data Collection and NCR
Collecting inspection data on the shop floor in real-time is key to understanding a process. Making that data available in an easy-to-read dashboard provides visual confirmation of process quality. High QA IM Explorer and High QA IM eXpress are mobile solutions to designed to automate the inspection process.
Tablet-based High QA IM Explorer and High QA IM eXpress provide access to the ballooned drawing, a wizard-like step-by-step guide with predefined measurement tasks, and visual instructions for completing the measurement process. Inspection plans from High QA Inspection Manager define the inspection requirements using a centralized database for accurate, consistent information and real-time non-conformance reports.
The intuitive, easy-to-use app, guides users through the inspection tasks step-by-step with minimal training.
High QA IM Explorer and High QA IM eXpress are part of High QA’s Comprehensive Manufacturing Quality Management System designed to work seamlessly with High QA Inspection Manager. While High QA IM eXpress is used to collect inspection data from preassigned project and jobs, High QA IM Explorer has additional functionality to enable users’ access to a wider range of information delivered from High QA Inspection Manager’s central database.
One-Click Report Generation
High QA Inspection Manager’s comprehensive integrated report module automatically produces a variety of standard and custom reports using data from its centralized database. Report types include industry standard FAI, PPAP, SPC, NCR, and more, including company specific and custom-designed report templates. Inspection results collected from the shop floor, automatically or via manual entry, or from your supply chain partners, provide the source data used in these reports. The integrated Report Designer creates custom report forms and templates in minutes to meet internal or external reporting requirements. Custom reports can include formulas, unique page layouts, and the ability to import your customers’ existing templates. Customers appreciate seeing their own branding on reports, especially with the first-rate results that High QA Inspection Manager provides.
