Quality management

Test planning as basic requisite for successful quality management.

The main task of quality management is the analysis, supervision, control and documentation of all articles and processes in a business. As a planning tool, quality management is closely connected to product planning and test planning to analyze test results and create test certificates. All test certificates are configurable to unique customer specifications.


The following features are supported by test planning with GUSS expert:

      -Extra test instructions for every test
      -Automatic test result capturing using machine data connections
      -Integrated documentation of scrap production for every produced article
     using production data capturing
      -Complaint management incl. 8D Reports
      -Incoming goods inspection
      -Automated creation of individually adjustable test certificates


Especially developed for foundry businesses:

      -Management of planned charge including price history of purchase articles
      -Spectrometer analysis allocation to every batch with base and end analysis
      -Tracking of individual castings and batches available
      -Integration of melting control systems with feedback
     of target and actual consumption of material


All listed features are supported by complementary software tools:

      -Graphical evaluations using the configurable Report Designer
      -Cumulative frequency analysis
