CAQ
Quality management effective and efficient

about us page title image

The argument against increasing paperwork!
CAQ (Computer-aided Quality Assurance) is a comprehensive quality management system featuring graphic interactive inspection and quality assurance. It makes the live much easier for
companies in the medical, the aircraft and the automotive industry. Traceability is consequently implemented. CAQ software audits become a mere formality.

Overview

  • Measurement equipment management

    In the test equipment management all test and measuring equipment is recorded according to standards. The inspection dates are monitored. Test equipment due for testing is summarised in a list. Test costs can be logged and analysed.

  • Inspection equipment capability

    Test equipment capability investigations may be carried out in accordance with standard procedure 1, 2 and 3.

  • Test equipment monitoring

    The test equipment monitoring supports the user during calibration according to standardized test specifications such as VDI/VDE/DGO2618. Individual test plans can also be created.

  • Conversion of a drawing in a inspection plan

    Test plans can be created graphically interactively. Different test criteria can be defined for each operation.

  • Initial sample test report

    The release procedures according to VDA 2 (PPF) and QS 9000 (PPAP) include both product and production process release.

  • Measuring data acquisition

    The operator is guided through the measuring sequence by the software. He is shown how to measure. If the test equipment is connected to the system via a measuring multiplexer, the measurement data is automatically recorded. 3D measuring machines can be integrated just as easily as measuring systems installed in the system.

  • SPC (statistical process control)

    The statistics module supports all relevant distribution types. A large number of evaluation forms are already available.

  • Complaints management

    For internal and external complaints, including 8D report. An internal complaint can be generated directly if a measurement criteria is violated.

  • FEMEA

    With knowledge database

  • CAPA

  • APQP

  • Workflow and measure management

    The measure management can be used across modules. The status of each measure can be seen in the measure cockpit. Measures can be controlled via the workflow module. Standardized processes can thus be initiated at the push of a button.

  • Audit management

    The existing audit catalogs can be added very easily.

Effective quality management

CAQ 5000 is a modular computer-aided quality management system, fully integrated with interfaces to 3rd party systems e.g. ERP. A consistent data management avoids double entry of the same data. Measured data are automatically stored and assigned to the appropriate customer order.

The modular design of CAQ 5000 closes the gaps in an existing Q system. If required, the CAQ solution can be expanded at any time.

CAQ 5000 stops the flood of paper, reduces quality assurance efforts and sustainably improves processes in terms of quality. With its simple, efficient handling, CAQ 5000 is ahead of its competition.

"With CAQ 5000, we can now make our inspection plans 10 times faster."

D. Zandolini, Ruetschi Technology AG

The CAQ solution covers the entire quality process. Measures can be derived directly from the various CAQ modules, which can then be monitored. And if necessary, an escalation is triggered. Since the modules interact and access the same data, you simply move through the modules and traceability is guaranteed.


CAQ 5000 has various interfaces. The interface between ERP and CAQ is one of the most important. Master data and transaction data are maintained in the ERP and can be used by the CAQ. Measuring machines, measuring bridges and measuring systems can also be integrated into the process. The QDX interface and the calibration interface according to VDI 2623 enable electronic data exchange with third parties.

Customer's benefit

  • With CAQ 5000 paperwork can be avoided: all performance data are electronically available, no more test sheets that are subject to misplacement. All performance data becomes available at the push of a button.

  • With CAQ 5000 all measuring instruments are under control. No test equipment will be unexpectedly missing due to external calibration.

  • The CAQ 5000 is a end-to-end system that covers all aspects of quality management.

  • CAQ 5000 is an integrated system with interfaces to ERP/MRP. No double data entry needed.

  • Quinx' CAQ software enables the efficient generation and administration of inspection plans by applying intelligent stamp software, graphic support and the concept of a family inspection plans

ERP/MRP Integration

CAQ 5000 has standard interfaces to various well-known ERP/MRP:

  • ABAS
  • Infor
  • Infra
  • Navision
  • ProAlpha
  • SAP/R3
  • SAP Business One
  • etc.

Special features of CAQ 5000

Data import

CAQ 5000 connects all communication-capable measuring devices, whether manual measuring devices, measuring projectors, multipoint measurement or the HELIOPAN from Helios.

Automatic tool correction in CAQ 5000

CAQ 5000 connects the production machine directly with the measuring computer. Different control methods directly correct the offsets of the tools. If the intervention limits are violated, the corresponding tools are corrected directly in the CAQ tool correction memory using different methods.

CAQ 5000 and the Twinner from IBB-Technology

A special software component as part of the CAQ system enables the graphic interactive measurement of rotationally symmetric parts. Form and position measurements such as concentricity or roundness are determined with respect to the rotary axis or workpiece axis. With the CAQ system from Quinx, special measuring macros enable measurements that were unthinkable in the past.

CAQ 5000 and the measuring device "Profile" from TESA

Data from the TESA Profile can be imported autmatically by the CAQ software and entered in the control chart. Data can be imported from any measuring machine via RS-232 and file sharing.
