  3. Does anyone run the "Mastercontrol" suite of MFG software?

    Essentially I'm looking at what you've described: In the case of a CUSTOMER COMPLAINT no one has to engage any subjective voodoo. It's a CAR. Because it's a Customer...
  5. Corrective Actions and when you do or don't do one?

    I'm not going to belaboring why I need to ask what I consider a basic question. I'm simply going to ask and calibrate myself if need be based on feedback.

    I'll think about that. Currently, I have an "intelligent" spreadsheet setup to auto-number rows and ID inspection point columns based on just entereing number of Parts and number of Inspection...

    Phil,

    What is happening is the original 7, 23, 64, have been physically replaced with spare parts. The spare parts have been renumbered as 7, 23, and 64 and the inspection measurements for the...

    I would like to thank each and every one of you for your considered advice, no matter the subject isn't overly technical.

    Didn't think about using a separate internal control number on the parts. ...
  10. Renumbering Inspection Report Numbers, do you do this?

    Example: 100 parts for delivery, 105 parts made (5 as extras). All are engraved with IDs + a sequence number

    If replying to the entire survey is prohibitive, perhaps some of you might skip to the "Your Inspection Procedures" part at the end . . .
  14. What are your "1st Piece Procedures" - in process checking, not FAI

    Though this may at first appear long, the intent is to not ask for War & Peace from you. Rather, fast data points. My need is to ping "the industry" for a broader view from those of you having to...

    I would like to thank all the responders in this thread. There are some good pointers in here. I particularly like the tip off to the Mantis, as well as to the Artistry site as that is a direct...

    Beege,

    Are you using these for polishing? I ask as the format of the scope is critical it would seem. Meaning, a free floating head that can be positioned as needed as Polishers are manipulating...
  17. Part Polishers, what type of microscope do you use?

    The title sums it up.

    Our application is the polishing of tooling we make for molding customers. Typically, these are parts .300 to 1.5" in dia in some form of steel or perhaps Moldmax/Moldstar...

  22. What type of tablets / PCs are you running on the shop floor?

    The question also encompasses electronic work-flow / routers that pass jobs from position to position as job steps are completed. What software, do you like it vs do you not like it?
