Digitaltest is launching the QMAN data entry station IRWS, which is said to be suitable for various tasks.
One of the main applications is for data entry at visual inspection workstations. A checklist can be provided that must be completed by the operator to confirm that the visual inspection has been carried out. The same would apply at functional test stations, where it can be difficult to interface functional test results into quality management systems. The IRWS station provides flexible support where functional test parameters can be entered and pass/fail test results can be written into the quality management database.
Besides these applications, the new QMAN module can also be used at other points in the manufacturing process, for example, in packaging stations. Before packing or installing an assembly, the serial number can be scanned at the IRWS station and the software would check if all tests have been completed with a 'pass.' The assembly will not be released for packaging or installation until all necessary tests are confirmed as passed. If any operational step had been missed, the system could indicate which step and where to re-insert the assembly.
The product can be also be easily integrated with systems from other vendors and is available now.
