What’s new in Opcenter Quality 2312

By Alessandro Cereseto

Execute quality inspections and evaluate results for streamlined production capabilities

Opcenter Quality, which is part of the Siemens Xcelerator business platform of software, hardware and services, helps you support all of the quality procedures required in the product lifecycle. It covers the plan-do-check-act (PDCA) cycle, enabling the user to manage core quality tools and corporate quality.

Enhancing production inspection capabilities

With the latest version, the lot/batch dialogue has been enhanced to provide improved data traceability. All the information that was previously available in the original table has now been integrated into the left tab called “additional info sample”. If a row is highlighted in green, it indicates the corresponding column contains a selection list. Further, a new tab has been introduced that delivers additional information at the inspection order level. This new tab functions like the “additional info on sample” tab but primarily provides information specific to the inspection order.

Opcenter Quality 2312 brings you the following benefits:

  • Execute quality inspections and evaluate results for streamlined production capabilities
  • Use new properties to calculate statistics for dynamic sampling
  • Improve capabilities in SPC, IGC and OGC web module
  • Enhance support of standard requirements for the aerospace industry
  • Enhance gage management process and usability
  • Enhance application security requirements

Some features:

  • Increased functionality for SPC calculations
  • Dynamic sample calculation at inspection plan level instead of inspection characteristic level
  • Enhanced usability for SPC, IGC and OGC web module
  • Added SPC acquisitions to dynamize inspections based on lot size
  • Functions for improved usability of gage management
  • New protocols for user password and authentication in applications
