QUAD (QUality ADvisor) is a flexible modular Quality Management system built around a centralized and open architecture database, providing traceability for any PCB electronic production data. QUAD covers all quality aspects of PCB assembly, sub-assembly and system build, allowing you to manage the quality data flow from product realization to product retirement. It has been designed to be used either standalone or to be easily integrated into any existing production environment.
It offers a powerful support for PCB fault diagnosis and provides access to detailed information in real-time that can be presented clearly and precisely using advanced reporting. This allows users to analyze real-time information, in order to diagnose and resolve process problems at the earliest opportunity to improve yield, quality and productivity, which will ultimately result in lowering cost.
QUAD comprises of the following modules:
- QuadRecorder module allows automatic access to all test and diagnostic results generated by ATE (ICT, FT, BST, FPT, AOI, AXI and other dedicated systems).
- QuadStation module analyzes the data presented to the repair and diagnostic station, to allow the operator to quickly fix the detected fault and graphically input repair data into the QUAD database.
- QuadReports module produces quality management information and reports in real time through intranet or internet.
- QuadSetup module allows operations such as; user account management, system configuration, import of external data, export of database records and system monitoring with the aid of the automated dashboard feature.
