How eMMA meets the challenges of modern quality assurance

15 February 2018: Silke Baumgärtel

Quality assurance in modern industry is a complex process that requires the support of ever more specialized hardware and software. This article provides an overview of the features that make eMMA a smart and efficient solution for dimensional data management and analysis.

The challenge

Short start-up phases for the introduction of new products, high process stability with low reject rates and consistently high product quality are major goals of 3D metrology. Product quality, achieved through evaluation and assurance of customer-relevant quality criteria, has developed into a strategic competitive factor for manufacturing companies. To meet these challenges through early detection, shutdown and prevention of errors at all stages of the product lifecycle in a global enterprise, a centralised data management system is needed. Such system must be integrated into the existing software solutions and IT infrastructures, and thereby serve the distributed quality process from the conception of the product to the end of the warranty with the most uniform data formats possible.

Efficient from product development to production monitoring

eMMA interacts with CAD and PDM / PLM for a close link between product development and quality assurance. This enables a fast and structured management of inspection plans together with the CAD geometries according to the assembly sequences of the products. The development team is thus able to access the production monitoring efficiently. All centrally managed data is available to an authorised group of users across all locations. Changes in the design or in the inspection plans, tolerances or measurement program are documented and passed on without detours along the assembly sequence and up to the production lines. This supports the entire product development process and...
