Solution

Quality Control Departments of manufacturers around the world face the same challenge of no traceability of the measurements performed manually by the operators. Results are usually hand written on notebooks or unaccounted for.

Already having the experience with Scan Fit and Measure systems EngView team decided to develop a solution that will help operators send manual measurement results to a mobile device and then store the data in the cloud. A measurement plan displayed on a mobile device prompts the operator which dimensions to check and immediately calculates the deviation from the nominals. Bluetooth connection between the smart phone and thedigital caliper ensures that the measurement data is safely stored in the cloud.

mCaliper is a software solution that consists of a mobile application and a cloud server.
