Enhance the scope and value of your SAP Quality Management solution with real-time Statistical Process Control (SPC) software
Quality Management (QM) Adapter is Zontec’s certified integration tool for SAP the Business Suite. The interface has been designed to align with the following SAP Quality Management modules:
- Quality Planning
- Quality Inspection
- Quality Certification
- Quality Notification
- Quality Control
The QM Adapter creates an easy-to-use communication link between SAP systems and the Synergy 3000 Enterprise SPC software. Once the interface has been performed, SAP users can then augment their quality assurance capabilities with powerful real-time, production-floor based SPC that includes data collection, process monitoring, alarms, charting, lot traceability, analysis and reporting.
The QM Adapter provides two key functions for a manufactured product, part or process. First, it allows the user to issue a request for information from the inspection plan defined in the SAP Quality Management module. For each quality characteristic, it retrieves the specification limits (tolerances), sample size, number of decimal places, and brief description of the characteristic. The QM Adapter then builds the required Synergy 3000 SPC Data Bank and Data Tables and inserts these parameters from the SAP inspection plan into the appropriate Data Tables.
The second phase of the interface operation involves importing the existing measurement values from the SAP Quality Management Database along with date and time stamps, inspector ID tags and process alarms for out-of-control and/or out-of-specification conditions into the Synergy 3000 Database.
The Synergy 3000 SPC application is now ready to manage these SAP processes from S3K Operator, Engineer or Manager Level-users.
If the organization wishes to automate data acquisition to and from the SAP QM Database in real time, an IT programmer or system integrator can take advantage of Zontec’s S3K DLL program to customize the data transfer into and out of the Synergy 3000 application.
