CITECT has announced the launch of CitectIIM Quality, a dynamic business intelligence solution for manufacturing which enables production managers to optimise production through the automatic real-time logging of qualitative data directly from the production control system.
As the second release in Citect's suite of industrial information management (IIM) analysis modules, CitectIIM Quality delivers timely and accurate reports to key personnel allowing better, more informed decision-making for improved output quality and control throughout the manufacturing cycle.
"To keep up with the increasing demand for Quality Analysis, it is becoming increasingly important to have systems in place which allow the manufacturing process to be scheduled, set up, optimised, controlled, and monitored using intuitive, systematic, document-able and globally supported methods," explained Craig Resnick, senior analyst of the ARC Advisory Group.
Through the analysis of out-of-control values and the automatic identification of out-of-spec values during production processes, CitectIIM Quality enables quality managers to take prioritised decisions to quickly bring the product back into specification thereby reducing wastage costs and increasing first-pass quality.
Automatic capture and logging capabilities of both the quality of the materials and of the processes, provides greater visibility and control over supplier quality, and allows regulatory and customer requirements to be met.
