Meeting customer demands for higher quality and lower costs can be a daunting task, especially with manual processes. Traditionally, improving quality meant investing more in labor, conducting numerous visual inspections, additional tests, and extensive training efforts. However, the good news is that technology has finally caught up, offering a game-changing solution to reduce the cost of quality.

Integrating Equipment with Instructions

With Intelligent Work Instructions, you have the power to define specific requirements in the physical world, ensuring that the process proceeds only when these requirements are met. Whether it's Smart Tools, Test Equipment, Machinery, or fixtures & jigs, you can integrate them seamlessly into your workflow. This eliminates the need for extra labor to validate the process, as everything can now be automated.

Tracker: Scout System's Edge Device

Tracker, our near-universal signal interpreter, is designed to seamlessly connect with a wide range of equipment, thanks to its ability to read various signal types. With this versatility, integrating Tracker with your existing machinery becomes a breeze. You won't have to worry about firmware updates, as the edge device is built to be self-sufficient, eliminating any potential hassles. Moreover, its rugged construction ensures that it can withstand the demands of even the harshest manufacturing environments.

Compass: Technician Mode

After successful installation, you can log into Compass as a Technician to set up and configure the parameters of the connected physical equipment.

HQ Designer: Validations Example

When crafting Work Instructions for Station Types with linked equipment, you gain access to the powerful Validations feature. This enables HQ Designer to recognize the connected equipment and empowers you to set specific signal requirements. With Validations engaged, you can ensure that your instructions align perfectly with the equipment, resulting in more accurate and efficient operations. Embrace this functionality to elevate your production process and enhance quality control.

A New Era of Quality Assurance

As your factory embraces digital connectivity, you'll discover exciting possibilities to cut down on your cost of quality. By integrating Digital Work Instructions, particularly those with physical signals, you can automate quality checkpoints and significantly reduce the labor involved in reviewing your Operator's work.

API Development Portal

Leveraging our Application Programming Interface (API) Portal, you can seamlessly connect your production data to your Quality Management System, eliminating manual data entry and the potential for human error.
