Quality Control automation software provider High QA has released Version 5.0 of its comprehensive Inspection Manager (IM). The new version features the next level of Quality 4.0 standards and increased automation.
Designed and built as a database (MS SQL) driven software, IM is an integrated set of applications that encompass quality management modules including One-ClickTM GD&T extraction and automatic ballooning using advanced AI-driven OCR, inspection planning, data collection and organization, automated import of inspection results from CMM, VMM and other connected measurement equipment, in-process shop floor inspection results collection, creation of standard and custom forms and reports, Integrated SPC tracking and reporting, user-access security management control, ERP integration and more.
IM creates inspection plans, ballooned PDFs, consolidates results, and generates reports to AS9102, Medical Industry Standards, AIAG/PPAP, and other standard or custom forms. Version 5.0 features enhanced support for metric dimensions, ISO, BSI and ASME metrology standards.
One-Click OCR GD&T extraction and ballooning from 2D drawings, PDFs, TIFF, or other image files, is a fundamental component of IM. That feature now includes support for Surface Finish and Welding symbols, saving hours (and sometimes days) in this initial phase of inspection planning. The new version streamlines the various modules and systems integration and maximizes automation and efficiencies to meet current and future measurement and inspection quality demands and requirements.
Enhanced job life-cycle management provides greater workflow support, managing jobs and batch records as they move from stage to stage in the process. A database upgrade addresses various installation scenarios, including external MS SQL server locations and advanced database administrator (DBA) settings.
Version 5.0 of IM software now demonstrates enterprise-grade compatibility across multiple locations, departments, and teams and provides access control permissions at desired levels of authorization.
High QA’s CEO and founder Sam Golan said, “Version 5.0 of High QA’s Inspection Manager Software provides increased functionality and power in nearly every aspect of its operation. The new enhancements illustrate the continuing efforts of High QA to fill our customers’ needs and enable them to take their quality management systems to the level of Quality 4.0.”
