Quality Assurance Process Optimization

QA Supervisor – optimize tasks that you assign to your operators. Make sure that only what needs to be done is done and always on time.

Monitor the process and take care of reporting. You can collect and manage data to eliminate related problems and reduce production defects.

Defective parts cause warranty costs and there are consequences for end-users as well as your brand image are a serious matter.

From scheduling to reporting QA Supervisor is a web based software, accessible from any device – always connected. It manages scheduling of the tests requested and shows status overview. The collection of data from all devices covers all the QA applications – and each user can work smoothly with a quality dashboard with personalized widgets. Even the reports are customizable to better meet user needs.

QA Supervisor requires one single installation to a server to be managed, this provides different advantages: - Reduce maintenance and IT costs - Each user can log in from any device connected to the network with user/password access

Quick and effective audits - Every single detail of the plant structure can be defined in QA Supervisor. It then keeps track of every change in the line setup. Reports are generated on demand and information is acceptable from any part of the factory.

Real Time Quality Dashboard enables overview of personal KPI’s through customizable widgets always updated in QA Supervisor home page for each user.
