TRAQ Manager also collects quality information from various mill systems including:
After a jumbo reel is turned up, TRAQ Manager begins gathering quality information for it from various mill systems.
The winder operator can review quality requirements and jumbo quality data, and examine and map it on the production patterns. This allows the winder operator to search for reels that meet the needs of the current winder pattern. The winder operator can also edit the patterns to provide the best yield, based on the customer's quality requirements contained in TRAQ Manager.
The Quality Management system tracks the quality information for each roll cut from the jumbo reel, including rewound rolls. Any workstation on the mill network can view product quality.
At any station (including wrapline, rewinder, or shipping), whenever a roll barcode is scanned, TRAQ Manager rechecks to see if any test on the paper has been redone. If either the test data or the customer requirements change, the system automatically verifies if the roll still meets the customer's requirements. TRAQ Manager alerts operators of any non-conforming quality requirements.
TRAQ Manager can be configured to warn or reject rolls that do not meet certain specifications. The operator can acknowledge a warning and the operation continues. A reject will not let the operation continue unless corrective action is taken. This means the roll can be downgraded or assigned to a customer who would accept the roll. In all cases, the system will audit these events.
TRAQ Manager prints Quality Certificates according to customer requirements.
