Software that will enable our company to make Quality Inspection Sheets

Greetings;

Does anyone know about any software that will enable our company to make inspection sheets? Our company machines automotive parts and we have inspection sheets posted at each workstation for each process for the operators to do their checks at the frequency that quality dictates.(hourly, every 1/2 hour etc.)

Our chief inspectors are currently making them on microsoft publisher and taking pictures of each inspection process and pasting them onto the sheets. There's a lot of cutting and pasting and picture taking going on. I just thought there might be an easier way.

thanks
kiddo

I don't know the name off hand, but there is a software product that makes a very good 'worksheet / inspection sheet' including pictures, etc. Actually it's very comprehensive - The database record has stuff for setup sheets and a lot of other things, if I remember correctly. Downsize is you almost need someone dedicated to the software and process of maintaining the records.

My contact is on vacation - I'll try to find out the software package name next week.

Kiddo,

Welcome to the Cove. If I understand this correctly, you have an inspection sheet that is accompanied by a process flow in pictures. Is this correct?
Why would you do this in Publisher? It makes the files too large and in my experience unwieldy.

I use plain old WORD. Make a table and use one side for text and the other for photos or a flow chart. I use visio for my flowcharts and paste them into word. They look pretty cool, if I do say do myself. I have plenty of examples of my flowcharts on the Cove so you could just do a search. Here is an example of what Word/Visio can do. It is a simple Cover sheet for our CAR folders (We call them Quality Reports) in a template format.

Note that I do not endorse any specific software. I did call my contact today and she was still on holiday until next week (taking 2 weeks off). I spoke with one gal there and she said she thought the software company was named Eyring, but I did a Google search and couldn't find it. I'll call my contact next week and find out what the scoop is.

Don't under estimate the other solutions like Excel spreadsheets and such. Often 'proprietary and specialized' software solutions are expensive and do not live up to their hype.

Kiddo, we use check sheets with pictures in excel and works fine for us.
I will attach a sample for your review. Hope this helps
I tried looking at this and it opens up with a bunch of ANSI text on the page.

:confused:

It must be your computer setup. I downloaded the file BROACHING REV3.1.xls and it opens fine here - Pictures and all.

Please let me know if you find out what software there is to use. Our customer wants us to record hourly data on sheets or have the operators input their data into some type of software. Thanks for your help.:thanx:
