Q-SYS Quality Logging has been designed for the Food and Drinks, Brewery and Dairy sectors. Typically, these organizations have hundreds of products/product combinations, high production throughput, and pressure to record, test and report results quickly.
Clyde Computing have over 20 years’ experience in these industries, resulting in efficient, easy to use software covering all typical quality control needs, and enabling our customers to fully meet the demanding requirements of their customers and audits. We completely configure your system to meet your exact needs with minimal effort on your part. Q-SYS has been continually developed, incorporating customer feedback to ensure a truly comprehensive, intuitive, efficient and flexible environment.
Designed for ease of use, with under-pressure QC and Production staff in mind, Q-SYS Quality Logging returns tangible benefits in very little time. Quality Logging data may also be combined with information from Q-SYS LIMS to give complete flexibility, and uses shared databases that enable you to define your products just once.
Q-SYS Quality Logging provides a simple operator interface, optimised for touch-screens, but may also run on standard Windows hardware.
The Q-SYS Specifications module is what drives Quality Logging. It specifies what quality checks are to be performed on how many items, what product identification information can or must be entered, and the targets, validation and limits applied to the entered checks.
Specifications are set up for all materials and products being checked. Specifications are uniquely numbered, as are all versions; the history of all changes is retained by Q-SYS. Each version can also include documentation of any changes, and the system provides an alerting feature when a revised Specification comes into effect.
Specifications for each quality assessment may include maximum, minimum, upper and lower warning limits and upper and lower mandatory limits. Each limit can also have a customised on-screen or spoken message defined, which QC’s and operators see as they enter assessments.
For average weight and other process-related checks, Q-SYS allows the full range of statistical parameters to be set up, and calculates T1, T2 and other parameters automatically.
Q-SYS uses this information to highlight results automatically, calculate and advise operators of machine adjustments needed to meet weight standards, automatically determine whether a product can be released, and alert technicians and managers to issues.
Specifications, and all versions can be printed or exported in any format to provide customer reports, management review information or operator checklists.
The Specifications module is also shared by Q-SYS LIMS and Pack Quality Control. So, for example, if you are conducting on-line quality and weight checks using this module, and also testing products in the laboratory, the same specification is used for everything.
Features and Benefit
Q-SYS provides a comprehensive suite of standard reports and exports, which have been developed to meet typical needs. When we survey your requirements, we will identify any specific reporting needs and provide these when configuring your system.
You’re also able to design your own reports, using the built-in report and export designer, which are integrated into the underlying database technology. Q-SYS allows the generation of reportable data in many formats, including on-screen, printed, PDF, spreadsheets, XML, .csv and other text formats.
Q-SYS includes integrated email and fax capability. Reports and spreadsheets can be emailed to customers/suppliers/staff direct from standard menu options or from custom designed batch reporting routines, which can run automatically if required. Q-SYS also provides the ability to password-protect PDFs, allowing you to send important reports to clients with confidence.
After your system has been installed, Clyde Computing provide a comprehensive custom design and consultancy service, giving you the option to have new reports and reporting routines made to your exact specifications.
Security and auditability are central to your operation. Every action performed on Q-SYS is traceable back to the user, time, date and workstation, providing you with full auditing and accountability. Q-SYS gives you and your customers the peace of mind that comes from knowing your data is secure.
Q-SYS Quality Logging is designed to allow increasingly complex quality attribute and HACCP checks to be recorded in real time, with no paper:
