Tram-QA

TramQA is a software system for data management in Quality Control. With TramQA you collect, store, retrieve and present quality control data in the way most suitable for your QA procedures. TramQA offers the flexibility to set up various complex tests on different machines, while still being very user-friendly in daily operation. Modernisation and automation often render perfectly good quality equipment obsolete, such as old solid crafted test machines. However, TramQA can be adjusted to work with these machines and accurately collect, store and analyse data as you need it. TramQA is the ideal solution for modernisation of quality equipment - technically as well as financially.

You will find numerous advantages in being able to use one single software system covering all quality testing and data mining. The ease of having to learn only one system is significant. With one integrated system you have the ability to cross analyse historic tests, etc.

The system is built around a calendar showing the recorded setss, marked on the date of creation (the test date). You may apply various filters to view certain sets only, e.g. by type, production date, lot-size etc. From the calendar you may select a set and view its data in the spreadsheet. The spreadsheet may be given various appearances - known as templates. From the calendar you select the template variant you need - such as one in English or one in Danish. In the spreadsheet you may enter measured values in designated columns, or you make new tests with automatic data recording. From the spreadsheet you may view and print existing load/deformation curves, in which the specimen's load (in Newton) is shown as a function of deformation. This curve is shown simultaneously with the testing. From the calendar you may calibrate the load cells in a test machine, and you may edit the test sequences, which control the behaviour of the test machine. For improving operation security and testing reliability some functions may be protected by passwords.

The specific tasks you want the test machine to perform is defined as a test sequence, i.e. they are the computer programs that control the movements and measuring of the machine. A powerful programming language allows you to tailor the test sequences exactly to the QA tasks at hand, and to modify test sequences to changing needs. You don't need to be a programmer to do this - just focus on the QA problem and know your test machine then the programming is straightforward.
