Drawing changes the CAD integration has proved very useful, because the changes to the system are clearly documented and visualized. The versioning of the drawings, you can generate a characteristic curriculum vitae on push of a button. Creation of inspection plans for the 1,500 current part numbers in the area punching inheritance technique is used intensively by BEHR the iqs. From a parent base inspection plan was created for each product group, the individual part-specific inspection plans settled the targeted acquisition of characteristics and each adding specific characteristics derive easily and quickly. The inheritance technique allowed the acquisition of relevant characteristics without copying in the hierarchical levels to document, all child test plans are automatically always up to date and accurate.
Modifications of the test plans, in part at the request of the Customers had to be carried, made be realize with little effort for all product groups. And also at drawing changes the inspection plans with little time could be kept up-to-date. From the function-critical features of the quality control charts are created then that also nest involved can be accomplished in the iqs of SPC. It has proved very helpful also, that the sampling intervals and sizes for each characteristic to be examined are separately defined. Comfortable data acquisition also showed very comfortable the accompanying production data acquisition for the workers. During the recording of the measured values, the software supports the auditor with graphical test instructions, images, or videos. The characteristics to be inspected are represented by the integration of the current drawing. The connection to the acquisition of measurement data from the multi sensory machines such as such as laser scanners and tactile and microscopic tests employed in Behr worked smoothly. The measured values can be applied directly as results in the quality control charts. In the event that limit values are exceeded or such a trend suggests that the traffic light function has proved, which gives the operator clear statements and pointing out the necessary measures.
