ATS upgrades manufacturing inspection software to include reference documents
ATS Inspect 5.4
ATS Inspect 5.4 — a software product that is designed to provide enhanced control and efficiency in manufacturing processes — includes several new functions, allowing manufacturers to share best practices and to enforce global quality standards throughout the manufacturing and supply chain.
One of its main features enables system administrators to create mandatory inspection steps that are assigned to each station in the desired sequence using Cockpit.
Each step may include checklist questions, views, view categories and part categories and can have an image associated to it to highlight where the operator is working.
In Data Collect, the operator must begin with the first inspection step assigned to the station and cannot proceed to the next step until the current step has been completed.
Completion will be accomplished by answering all checklist questions assigned to the step.
- Reference documents can be added to give extra information to the operators carrying out inspections
- Two Repair controls help speed up the repair process
- The Last Repair Comments control displays a list of the most recent comments associated to the selected component/concern/repair combination
- The Top Repair Types control displays the most common repairs for the selected component
- Customisable Repair Triggers send notifications when individual repairs are entered into the Inspect system
- Password encryption provides a higher level of security
DRS Laurel Technologies has implemented the ATS Inspect visual inspection software to meet the data-intensive challenges required by the Reset programme.
So much has been written in the past few years about the failure of improvement initiatives to deliver significant bottom-line results. There have been theories brought forward about why, after spending so much money on things such as Lean and Six Sigma training, companies are abandoning their formal improvement efforts
White paper: How Remote Monitoring of existing CP Systems can improve safety, offer better protection and reduce operating costs download
Impressed Current Cathodic Protection systems are a common technology used to prevent corrosion in steel and reinforced concrete structures. These systems are designed to operate for decades, in line with the expected life of the asset. But keeping the assurance that your valuable assets are indeed protected from corrosion over the long term is an expensive exercise. This paper explores the benefits and savings that can be achieved with modern remote monitoring technologies.
