Zero-error production and process security with SQS3

Industry 4.0 is bringing many changes and new challenges. The increasing individualization of products, growth in the number of components used for specific variants and the resulting increase in the complexity of production processes are calling for new process strategies. Within the framework of our Smart Connected Assembly approach, we combine software and hardware solutions with smart tools and accessories to ensure the effective control of your production process. This way, we optimize your production times even in the case of complex production processes, reduce reworking and downtimes and significantly improve your product quality. Our joint challenge is:
To find the right balance between quality, process security and costs.

The  Scalable Quality Solution 3 (SQS3) error-proofing software provides support where the simplified presentation of complex processes is needed, there is a risk of confusion as a result of a large number of variants or step-by-step assembly is needed to reduce the potential for human errors.

The software brings perceptible benefits:

 Scalable Quality Solution 3 - the Atlas Copco error proofing software
  • Significantly improves your production process 
  • Helps ensure zero-error production 
  • Reduces reworking cost and time, complaints, expensive recall campaigns and on-site repairs 
  • Process results are digitalized and provide support for safe working on the product or the early detection of weaknesses in the process in combination with a process control system. 
  • High transparency and the traceability of production results (principle: who did what and when) ensure the storage of employee and product data. 
  • Release routines, the display of safety instructions and other options make processes even more secure.

    SQS3 is network-compatible and can combine up to 10 stations in a network. A rework or repair station can also be added – entirely without server or IT support.
 Simple plant configuration using in-house employees to ensure fast reactions to process-changes

In the autumn of 2018, a globally active supplier specializing in interior equipment for vehicles changed its production line in Scandinavia over to SQS3 with the following objectives:

  • Integration of the software in the existing production system as well as various interfaces with local systems
  • Seamless traceability of production data and improved analysis capabilities
  • A scalable, extendable system solution allowing the easy integration of additional assembly stations
  • Low downtimes thanks to a robust system solution
  • High-efficiency thanks to flexible software
  • Simple plant configuration using in-house employees to ensure fast reactions to process-changes 
The project manager confirmed that the software had been successfully introduced and emphasized the committed, professional cooperation of Atlas Copco. After commissioning, further adaptations were made at the request of the customer. Following a brief training period, the customer’s personnel could program and operate the software without any further assistance. This means that the customer gained the independence and flexibility required. Together with the software, we also offer comprehensive service and maintenance as well as adaptations tailored to meet customers’ individual needs.
Off-the-peg or made-to-measure? Both are possible with Scalable Quality Solution - SQS3.
