Preventing typos on Inspection Reports

If the .05 mm resulted in an out of spec condition, Michael's idea to have out-of-spec entries automatically highlighted by the software may help. If highlighted right away, people usually fix it right away.
Thank you. I found a QA/QC software that extracts text and data directly from the drawing and pastes or exports into Excel or minitab. I gave it to my manager to see what he thinks. He agrees that this kind of software will greatly reduce mistakes caused by typos. I'm waiting on his decision. Meanwhile, I will try using the FLAG mechanisms suggested in this feed.

Hello,
I am wondering if anyone knows of any software that helps to prevent typos. Inspection Reports at my current job location contain frequent "fat finger errors" I am trying to find tools to help catch these before they get to production / inspection.
Have you checked out 1factory?

We use 1factory to balloon drawings, 1st piece, in process, and final inspection. We also use 1factory to create FAIR's. The software does a WHOLE lot more, too.

I made control limits on the data in the column then highlighted out of control points in addition to out of tolerance points. Sometimes an in-tolerance reading can be a fat finger and while it won't be a false failure, it can impact capability. The other thing is require paper records first that can be transcribed. It's a hassle, but people are way less likely to write the wrong thing than they are to type it. Once the digital data is vetted, you can discard the paper one.

Thank you! I will try this.
