Measurement instrument management software is a computer tool designed to help companies manage and control their inventory of measurement instruments, such as micrometers, calipers, thermometers, pressure gauges, and more.
In data analysis, measurement errors often affect the data, causing variation during Statistical Process Control (SPC) analysis and affecting results such as Cpk, PPK, Ppm, and others.
These instruments are used to control the dimensions of products to meet customer specifications.
This type of software allows for the creation of a digital record of the company’s measurement instruments, including detailed information for each one, such as the brand, model, serial number, location, calibration date, and expiration date.
Furthermore, measurement instrument management software can also schedule alerts and reminders for calibration, MSA studies, and instrument maintenance, ensuring that they remain in good working condition and provide accurate measurements.
In this way, software like MSA Gage Pro helps companies maintain efficient and accurate control over their measurement instruments, allowing them to optimize their use, reduce costs, and ensure the quality of their products and services. Start your free trial now: Click Here
