Defect Map allows you to associate the location and dimensional characteristics of the defects you detect with their location. It is a very powerful tool for analysing all aspects of non-destructive testing in the form of a map: visual, radiology, penetrant testing, ultrasound, etc…
1. Global view of defects
The total number of defects, the general trend and areas of defect occurrence can be tracked.
2. Trend for each type of defect
The next step is the trend analysis for each individual defect.
3. Focus your efforts
Give priority to the problems that will generate the greatest improvement. The pareto diagrams show you clearly which defects are to be treated as a priority.
4. Location of the worst defects
Now that you know the extent of the non-conformities and which defect is responsible for the largest number, you can start a root cause analysis.
The Defect Map shows you the areas where defects appear.
5. In-depth analysis and actions
You now have a clear definition of the problem and a fine exploration that allows you to direct your improvement actions.
You can now tackle the root causes and see the impact of your corrective actions.
Process Steering Matrix
A control matrix models the links between the machine parameters and the dimensions of the part being manufactured. When the measurements are validated, the control function SPC automatically calculates the best corrections to be made according to the deviations from the target observed on the measured parts.
R&R / MSA
Calculation of control process capabilities
The R&R module of the SPC function allows to calculate all the indicators of repeatability and reproducibility required by MSA and other standards, as well as to graphically represent the variation shares. This validation R&R must be a prerequisite for any study SPC.
1. Calculation of R&R indicators per study
All measurements are capitalised in the control cards, file by file, with a global vision or a vision by operator or by equipment.
2. Monitoring of indicators over time
The same R&R study can be repeated over time (once a year for example). Qualaxy SPC makes it possible to monitor the evolution of indicators in addition to the current acceptable or unacceptable status.
3. Wide range of studies available
R&R control ranges can be configured for different types of study
4. Complete, clear and customisable reporting, per study
The format of the “Control Report” file is fully customizable.
5. A single database
The database is common between SPC and R&R, including for structure objects: a product reference can be followed by a production run and an R&R inspection run. The production data can be linked to the R&R data via the identifiers of the measuring instruments.
