Computer-aided quality assurance (CAQ) means computer-based quality assurance. A CAQ system is necessary for cost-effective compliance with quality requirements.
Quality-related data on production processes can be analysed, documented and archived with CAQ systems. This is very important for companies in order to minimise product liability risks.
CAQ is used in the following areas, among others:
- Incoming goods inspection and supplier evaluation (ISO/TS 16949)
- Pre-production inspection
- Inline production inspection
- Outgoing goods inspection
- Effects analysis (FEMA)
- Document management
- Measures management
- Complaints management
- Test equipment management
- First article inspection
- Quality planning
