ATS Applied Tech Systems has released ATS Inspect v5.3, the latest version of the company’s visual quality operations management software.

ATS Inspect V5.3 is claimed to be particularly important to users that need variable data collection and SPC.

It is also being adopted by the nuclear and other power industries.

New modules have been developed and are now available in ATS Inspect v5.3.

Inspect’s Variable Data Collect allows operators to record Critical-to-Quality characteristics such as lengths, diameters, temperatures, voltage or weight.

Statistical process control charts are also now available for real-time data analysis.

Form Composer can be used to create fully customisable layouts for the Data Collect module.

An intuitive what-you-see-is-what-you-get designer and scripting possibilities allow for extensive customisation of data collection screens.

The Data Archiver data management tool allows users to remove historical data from the Inspect database and store it on a separate file.

According to ATS Applied Tech Systems this will free up online resources and increase the analytical speed of production systems by reducing the amount of data in the system.

The Service Manager module allows system administrators and other IT/technical resources to configure, manage and monitor communication processes and services for external systems that send information to and from Inspect.

It manages the configuration of the .NET version of Inspect Communication Services and will eventually replace Inspect Enterprise Manager.

There have also been enhancements to improve existing functionality.

Acting on feedback from the shop floor, the radius at which a defect can be selected in Data Collect and Auditor can now be modified, making it easier to select.

A question can be cloned and modified so that it appears in more than one category of the same checklist.

A question can now be included in an entire product group as well as in individual products.

In order to speed up the start-up process for Data Collect and Auditor, instead of loading all views when logging in, there is an option that will allow them to only be loaded when they are required.

In cases where the operator does not require a detailed image on which to highlight faults, the size of a view can be reduced to speed up the image-loading process.

There have been several updates incorporated to make the information needed during the design phase more easily accessible where the user needs it most.

For example, when looking at layouts associated to stations, the screens contained in the layout are now also shown.

There have also been improvements to the real-time updating of information on the shop floor.

When an existing checklist question has been modified, or a new one added, it can be made instantly available on the production line at the touch of a button.
