Q-DAS: Enhancing Manufacturing Processes with Statistical Analysisby Melanie Feuerstein on March 22, 2018 From Ask The Experts
In mass production, measuring every part is unfeasible, so it’s crucial that analyses and comparisons of inspection results are completed to the highest standard. By increasing their understanding of correlations between characteristic data and process parameter data, manufacturers can ensure measurement accuracy while optimising processes to reduce costs and cycle times.
In this interview, Dr Edgar Dietrich, founder of the Hexagon-owned statistical process control (SPC) software specialist Q-DAS, discusses the importance of statistical analysis and how it enhances communication between plants and between manufacturers and suppliers, enabling actionable information for proactive, real-time decision making.
