Not sure how to use this type of forum, but I would like to be able to understand what we produced each day in terms of sales value, material cost, labor cost and overhead costs.  Is anyone familiar with an IQMS report that would give this information to me on a daily basis?

Hello all,
Does anyone use a Keyence measuring device to measure parts to be automatically imported into IQMS?
My team and I are trying to figure out a more efficient and automatic way to input the data. We've noticed that there is still a lot of hand keying after the measurements have been taken on the Keyence Machine.

Hello Everyone:

Due to the number of requests and the volume of MAPP members using IQMS, I am in the midst of creating a mini-users group meeting that will take place directly before the MAPP benchmarking conference if all goes as planned.  The date will be on Wednesday, October 12 and be located at the JW Hotel in downtown Indianapolis.  Stand by for more details.

If you would like to see a particular topic covered, let me know as I am going to ask IQMS to bring their experts in several different fields but I need input.

Could other IQMS users tell me how you handle regrind in IQMS?  ie, do you value it as virgin material once it is reground and then credit scrap expense?  Just trying to get a better understanding of the ins and outs of regrind.
