Automated CMM Data Import

1factory supports data imports from various digital gages, CMMs, in-circuit testers, test-fixtures, along with data uploads from spreadsheets (.xlsx, .csv, .txt etc.). For factories running multiple CMMs 24 x 7 x 365, 1factory supports automated data collection from inspection (e.g. touch-probe and optical CMMs), and test equipment (e.g. in-circuit testers). Capturing data directly from inspection or test equipment eliminates data-entry errors, minimizes the possibility of incomplete or missed inspections, and frees-up a significant amount of QC inspector time.

Generate Certificate of Conformance (CoC) and final inspection reports for customers in various formats. Sample parameters by selecting Sampling Tables and AQL Levels. Enjoy automated sample size calculation.

  • C=0
  • ANSI Z1.4 Level I and II
  • MIL STD 1916 Variable and Attribute
  • Outside Processing Certificates

In-Process Inspection

Measure part parameters at the correct step in the manufacturing process. Deploy simple visual controls so that factory technicians can ensure product is free of defects. Filter parameters by Production Stage, Operation Number, Inspection Method, and Sampling Rule to group measurements and speed-up data entry. Optimize your inspections with three convenient data-entry screen layouts:

  • Feature View
  • Parameter View
  • Spreadsheet View

Process Capability

1factory automatically calculates commonly used Process Capability metrics (Cp, Cpk) and Process Performance metrics (Pp, Ppk). 1factory supports calculations for both normally distributed as well as non-normal data (using non-parametric estimates i.e. the median, 99.5th percentile p(0.995), and the 0.5th percentile values p(.005) to calculate Cp, Cpk for non-normal data.

  • Unilateral and Bilateral Tolerances
  • Process Capability: Cp, Cpk
  • Process Performance: Pp, Ppk


Use individuals charts and Western Electric Rules to control manufacturing processes. Detect trends and anomalies quickly at the point of manufacture. Notify engineers and managers of out-of-control events so that they can take action to bring the process back in-control.

  • Run Chart
  • Histogram
  • Upper & Lower Control Limits (UCL, LCL)
  • Western Electric and Nelson Rules

Multi-Parameter Monitoring (Real-Time Charting)

Easily monitor all critical design and manufacturing parameters for a batch of parts. Bring together data from hand-held tools on the factory-floor and from the CMMs and Vision Systems in the QC lab into a single view for machinists. Instantly detect trends and shifts in processes and adjust processes before defective parts are produced.

Group charts by a combination of tags:

  • Operation (Milling, Turning etc.)
  • Inspection Method (e.g. Micrometer, CMM ...)
  • Critical to Quality (CTQ, Critical, Major, Minor, etc.)

Incoming Inspection

Inspect incoming components and ingredients. Capture visual and dimensional checks, and associate raw material and outside processing certificates of conformance. Enjoy automated sample size calculation. Use built-in lot switching rules to tighten or reduce inspection requirements based on historical supplier performance.

  • C=0 Sampling Plan
  • ANSI Z1.4 Level I and II Sampling Plan
  • MIL STD 1916 Variable and Attribute Sampling Plans
  • Raw Material Certificates

Customer PPAPs (Production Part Approval Process)

Save hours of time creating customer requested PPAPs. Eliminate redundant data-entry work by creating once and then automatically re-using the building-blocks of a PPAP: control methods, reaction plans, failure modes, failure effects, causes, detection, and action plans. Output documents include:

  • Process Failure Modes & Effects Analysis (PFMEA)
  • Control Plan
  • Ballooned Drawing
  • Process Flow Diagram
  • Dimensional Results
  • Process Capability Report Cp, Cpk, Pp, Ppk

Supplier PPAPs

Assign PPAPs to one or more supplier per part and notify suppliers. Define levels and required documents by level. Receive PPAPs from suppliers within 1factory. Review and approve individual requirements and notify suppliers of status change.

  • Define Levels, and Customize Required Documents List
  • Set Reason Codes (Design Change, Vendor Process Change etc.)
  • Set Due Dates and Track Progress
  • Measure Supplier On-Time PPAP Completion Rates

Unit Conversion (mm, inch)

1factory provides automated unit conversion from mm to inch and from inch to mm. So if you receive customer drawings in metric (mm) units, you can now balloon your drawing and create your QC Plan in mm, but yet collect all your data in inches, and finally output reports for your customers in mm. With the automated units conversion, you can eliminate calculation errors, and save many man-hours of work

  • mm to inch
  • inch to mm

Tabulated Parts

If your drawing includes a table of configurations or variants, you create a single QC Plan for the base part number, and then load the configurations into 1factory's Table of Sizes. 1factory automatically generates the inspection plan for each configuration. This is ideal for product families where each product configuration may have different parameter values such as lengths, diameters, colors, plating types etc.

  • Default Tolerances at the feature and plan level
  • Numeric or Variable Specs
  • Pass/Fail or Attribute Specs
  • Number of Places

Composite Parts

Certain assemblies require the re-inspection of component-level dimensions after assembly in addition to any assembly-level checks that need to be performed. For example, after two components are welded, you may need to re-measure some dimensions from each of the components to ensure there has been no distortion.

1factory provides powerful composite-plan capability that automatically links together the parent (assembly) plan and the component plans so that you can inspect each component separately, and also re-inspect certain selected component dimensions along with the completed parent assembly.

  • Assembly Bills of Materials
  • Auto-Linked Parent and Component Plans
  • Composite Inspection with Parent and Selected Component-Level checks

Defect Risk Detection

1factory automatically calculates in-spec % i.e. calculates production yield, and flags high-risk batches and features. You can instantly identify batches that need attention, and then drill-down to see the run-chart and histograms for the high-risk features.

  • In-Spec % and Yields
  • High-Risk Batches
  • High-Risk Features
