DOQ MES: All functions at a glance

Traceability within seconds and focusing on all existing predecessors allows unlimited tracking and tracing in vertical and horizontal planes. All special features recorded during the process can be recognized by all employees at any time by means of a conspicuous characteristic.

Up to now, terminals have mostly been available in the production halls for time recording. Routes between the own workplace and the terminal cost time and disturb the work flow of the employees. With mobile time recording in DOQ, every process step is recorded precisely directly at the workplace and is available for reliable post-calculation. “Set-up", "lying down" or "production" times can be started with a single click. When ending the time recording, entries can also be made in the mask for good parts / scrap.

Alle vorhandenen Datenbankeinträge lassen sich Zeitgesteuert oder On-Demand über Prozessketten hinweg auswerten und in individuellen Dashboards visualisieren. Mit den hinterlegten Soll Zeiten aus den Artikelstammdaten des ERP und den von DOQ erfassten Ist Zeiten lassen sich vielfältige Analysen mit Filtereinstellungen bezüglich Bearbeiter, Artikel, Ressource, Arbeitsgang und Zeitintervall durchführen. Die Anpassung der Sollzeiten auf praxisnahe Werte steigert auf Dauer nicht nur die Planungssicherheit für die Durchlaufzeiten einzelner Artikel, sondern ermöglicht auch eine genauere Nachkalkulation. Ebenso können Qualitätsanalysen zu Ausschussmenge, Ausschussgrund und Ausschusshäufigkeit erstellt werden. Durch die Ausgabe als csv. Dateien können alle DOQ Auswertungen in BI-Systemen weiterbearbeitet und zu aussagekräftigen Dashboards für alle Unternehmensebenen aufbereitet werden.

The entire manufacturing documentation of all manufactured batches or medical devices is provided by DOQ as a paperless device history record in PDF/A format. It contains information on previous batches as well as all audit trail records and signatures. A document list can also be used to define test reports, material certificates or other documents as part of the eDHR. This document can also be used for customer purposes with a clearly arranged table of contents.

X-COM is the application for automated data exchange between external data suppliers and DOQ. Data formats from web services, XML or Excel files can be processed directly. If machines or measuring devices provide other data formats, these are interpreted by an individual plugin for X-COM processing. Raw data is filtered in the plugin for meaningful content and then made available to X-COM. By configuration, a corresponding schedule for data transport can be defined, but when using a web service, the data can also be imported on demand. For the connection to SAP, the structured data transfer is executed by SAP IDoc. The control record, data record and status record are created using structured data transfer via XML.

The clear display of the process steps allows a quick overview of the production status of the individual batch. After opening the forms stored in each process step, the individual steps can be edited. It is possible to include individual blocking steps in the process, for example, due to checks. The configuration of a status workflow enables individual process steps to be released only according to the dual control principle.

Maintenance planning in DOQ enables the user to obtain information at his workstation about upcoming maintenance for machines, measuring instruments or other equipment. The planning can be time-controlled or based on the number of usages/quantities. The system has a notification function for stored recipients by e-mail or SMS. The complete maintenance history can be viewed at any time in the maintenance cockpit.

The detailed planning in DOQ for the employees and machine occupancy of various work processes can be realized both with a connected control station and with directly stored start dates from the ERP. If a control station is used, the current planning is transmitted to DOQ every 5 minutes. Possible changes in the work sequence are updated, filtered and made available to the employees in a resource-related manner. DOQ also offers the option of carrying out your own detailed planning by drag and drop. Here, work orders in ERP are only planned at group level and in DOQ are assigned to individual employees or machines by the production management.

In addition to the process times for "set-up", "production" and "lying" processes, all partial and finished messages with details of the produced scrap for individual work steps belong to the PDA recording. Further confirmations can be scanned batch numbers of parts list items or maintenance tasks. Due to the digital recording of the data, they are available to the entire company at any time and thus increase transparency.

With the help of XCOM or an OPC-UA client server, relevant machine data such as current statuses (setup, production, production interrupted, production finished), currently produced quantities (counter), and current piece time / cycle rate can be transmitted. These data are made available to the operator in DOQ at each connected machine and sent in parallel to the control station, if available.

Die Möglichkeit Sammelaufträge für Arbeitsgänge wie Reinigen, Härten oder Beschichten zu Erstellen spart Zeit beim Ausfüllen der digitalen Formulare. Einmal zusammengestellt kann ein Sammelauftrag auch von anderen Mitarbeitern wieder an gestempelt werden. Konfigurierbar ist dabei z.B., ob die erfassten Zeiten allen Betriebsaufträgen komplett zugeordnet, oder ob sie nach Anzahl der Chargen und Mengen aufgeteilt werden.

Eine einfache aber ungemein nützliche Funktion ist das Erfassen von Fotos mit der Tablet Kamera. Egal ob zur Dokumentation von fehlerhaften Teilen beim Wareneingang, dem Nachweis eines angebrachten Typenschilds an einem Gerät oder zur Beschreibung von Ausschussfehlern, das Foto ist genau an dem Betriebsauftrag, wo es hingehört. Die Fotos  werden automatisch in ein PDF umgewandelt und sind Bestandteil des eDHR.
