Quality Management Shop Floor Solution Provides Inspectors Mobile Tablet Functionality

TIP Technologies, a leading provider of Quality, Compliance, and Shop Floor Execution (SFE) software has announced the availability of its new Shop Floor Solution, TIPSFS.  TIPQA™ Shop Floor Execution empowers companies to efficiently manage daily production processes on the shop floor and automate quality compliance with a single solution. The transition to a paperless shop floor is seamless with TIPQA Shop Floor Execution. Complete visibility into the inspection process and inspection documentation history allows manufacturing and quality teams to work together for greater control of the manufacturing process, and immediately identify potential for costly errors without slowing down production.

TIPSFS leverages wireless connectivity to bridge the communication gap between managers, quality engineers, and inspection personnel. Browser-based tablet access to the TIPQA™ In-Process Inspection (IP), Serial/Traceable Configurations (SN), and Nonconformance Tracking (NC) modules provides greater visibility into the manufacturing process, enabling better decision making through real-time reporting.

“Inspectors, manufacturing personnel, shop floor supervisors, or any user that requires access to the quality record associated to shop floor operations, will now have the flexibility to move throughout the shop floor while maintaining continuous wireless access to critical, real-time quality data,” said Badri Balachandar, Director of Engineering at TIP Technologies. “Our customers have been asking for a web-based solution that delivers quality data with ease, and we believe that TIPSFS will meet that need at the high standard they’ve come to expect from TIP Technologies.”

“TIPSFS presents fundamental quality and manufacturing metrics in a user-friendly format that is accessible directly from the shop floor, resulting in the ability to better anticipate exceptions in quality,” stated Ron Dolan, President of TIP Technologies. “Mobile tablet access will enable users to take a more proactive approach to quality management, giving them a significant edge on their competition.”

As a complement to the TIPQA Quality Management Solution, use of the TIPSFS Shop Floor Solution is expected to result in a smarter workflow, and improved overall product quality.
