SQS At Home – Operator Guidance

Atlas Copco’s Scalable Quality Solution (SQS) is a comprehensive software solution developed for high-level error-proofing of product assembly processes.

Driving quality, process reliability and transparency, SQS eliminates operator errors and rework issues regardless of whether you start with a single station, a production cell, or an entire assembly line. 

As manufacturing transitions to Industry 4.0, SQS assists along the way by addressing current industry challenges regarding operator influence during production. Perhaps the most important method of addressing operator influence is through operator guidance, a key feature of SQS.

Operator guidance at a glance

Operators working on a plant floor are only as good as their best day. After all, they’re human. Mistakes can become inevitable on the production line without proper error-proofing methods in place. This is where SQS enters the picture. By guiding operators through the assembly process with visuals and step-by-step instruction, SQS ensures high-quality products, full traceability, and little room for operator error or oversight. 

Zero defects on the line

In this day and age, the ability to adapt and keep pace with the industrial changes being seen, such as Industry 4.0 and Smart Connected Assembly, is more important than ever. To remain relevant in your industry you must be agile. Your operators must be, too. Through step-by-step guidance, SQS drives assembly workflow at the workstation. When tasks are not completed, SQS records this information for traceability purposes. This guarantees that things are done right the first time through, in the correct order.

Reduced costs of rework and scrap, increased productivity

Human errors like choosing the wrong part on a build sequence or missing a step of the sequence itself are oversights with costly consequences. During the assembly process, operators are guided with visual instructions as they move through the build sequence and pick parts. This software also guides operators through the torque process. Colors are used during the tightening sequence; bolts in a sequence that need to be tightened are gray, the current bolt being worked on is blue, while OK results are green. NOK is red. With an extremely user-friendly interface, operator training is simple. This reduces training time and turnover rates, allowing your facility to spend valuable time being productive on the line. 

Operator Guidance Summarized

Your plant’s ability to keep up with the ever-changing manufacturing of today is an indication of its success. Stay flexible and agile with a software that detects errors at their source and prevents them from progressing down the line. With SQS working alongside your operators, eliminating risky deviations and potential errors during assembly, you can achieve zero defects on the line and reduce the costs of scrap and rework.
