Quality Control

Quantum Compliance & Control

Quantum Production Control™ delivers complete control over operations, including: orders, operators, scheduling, tools and machinery. Real-time reports are available on-demand throughout production, providing accurate information for your daily or weekly production meetings.

Close the Quality Control feedback loop with automatic tolerance checks and built-in rework paths. Compare current production rates with prior periods and report advances or slow-downs in production to your leadership team. Request resources where they are needed before production slows with real-time shop floor visibility.

Scrap is a luxury that few manufacturers can afford to ignore. Utilizing quality gates and electronic travelers drastically reduces scrap output and provides the traceability to correct small errors before they become disasterous recalls. Enforce tolerance checks and build compliance on every order. Eliminate scrap, generate profit and ship on-time, every time with Quantum.

Manufacturing Quality Control Tools
Eliminate Scrap

Mistakes on the shop floor are a product of the processes, tools and experience of your operators. Missing information in paper build books, error-prone paper travelers and unreliable work instructions hinder profit and create scrap. Control the information to your operators and eliminate costly errors.

Quality Alerts

Quantum Quality Control™ collects data throughout production and automatically redirects non-conforming work. Increase the speed of rework and guarantee order delivery dates with tolerance enforcement gates and programmable production alerts
 

Finite Scheduling

Get the most out of your operators and assets by optimizing workflow and scheduling away machine down time. Quantum Finite Scheduling manages current orders, planned work and problem workflows to remove the uncertainty, inflated costs and downtime issues associated with production.

Engine Manufacturer

Case Study

The Problem

This military equipment manufacturer was opening a new plant and struggled to meet the demands of the complex and heavily regulated production process. They sought a solution to: create, distribute and manage digital work instructions, collect the precision machining data necessary on complex parts, and create accurate/complete audit records. Their scheduling was more guesswork than science. They knew their paper-based processes resulted in errors and production wait times. However, without clarity or visibility into the production process, the manufacturer couldn’t determine a solution.

Defense Manufacturing

The Solution

CIMx suggested implementing a digital manufacturing system for the new plant. The system could manage the detailed work instructions required for manufacturing, and offered the easiest path to the comprehensive and auditable production records necessary for regulatory compliance. CIMx installed and configured the software, while moving the required data and records into the system. Simultaneously, users were trained in the solution. With the system in place, the software automated almost all of the data collection necessary for the audit records, including precision machining data. With no IT resources on site at the opening, CIMx configured the solution to be supported by remote IT resources.

By partnering with CIMx through the use of their software applications and their friendly, responsive, and competent staff of employees, we have no doubt that we will have nothing less than total success.

Manufacturing Executive

The Result

The new location opened on time. The manufacturing software was configured, installed and loaded in less than 5 weeks. With the rapid training and intuitive solution, the entire plant was operational and running at the opening. The software delivered comprehensive support for manufacturing and managed planning and operations at the opening. The solution provides the complete audit records necessary for regulatory compliance.
