Must read: How DataLyzer can help you to streamline your APQP Process
Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) was introduced in automotive industry but is now required in more and more industries. Early in the design process product characteristics and its classification are established and specifications are defined. These characteristics are forwarded in every step of the APQP process and are measured, analyzed, controlled and reported in First Article Inspection Report (FAIR), PPAP and SPC reports. Especially in aerospace and automotive a lot of measurements are taken with a CMM.
The process of registering all characteristics in every process step can be very time consuming.
Characteristics are established during the design process and then they need to be entered in the CMM program, FAIR, the FMEA and Control Plan and the SPC program. A time-consuming step for suppliers is that they often need to balloon the drawing from the customer as well.

What’s new: DataLyzer FMEA new features
We are currently working on a new feature which will allow users to create or print data entry inspection sheets or work instructions directly from the Control Plan. For data entry we can of cause use our SPC software but in some cases inspection sheets and complex work instructions are useful and will increase flexibility of the complete system. We will offer an option to link these documents automatically to the control chart in SPC.
Must read: Integrating OEE and SPC: A SMED example
OEE is a proven technology to improve productivity. OEE systems typically have a large amount of data which can be analyzed in all kind of different ways. But data is not always the same as information. By applying SPC techniques on OEE data you can turn valuable OEE data into information.
Monitoring the change over process
An important cause of downtime is changeover. Change over times can be dramatically reduced by applying Single Minute Exchange of Dies (SMED). This will have a major impact but how do you make sure that the change over procedure stays at an optimum level and how do you know the changeover process is not getting worse.
