What an Electronic Inspection Test Report system can do?
ITR for Data Collection
With Q.Shop’s ITR module, you can capture and store Inspection Test Report (ITR) or Inspection and Test Plan (ITP) information.
Furthermore, it makes your data entry process quick and easy by giving you features such as colour-coded data buttons, voice to text data entry, automated pass and fail, as well as embedded logic and calculation capabilities.
Plus, using online inspection forms, operators can directly access all their production procedures and related documents. Further, the embedded document manager and control make sure that employees can see the current/valid version of all documents and instructions.
ITR for production managers
The ITR module helps the management team to get a real-time view of the operation and monitor and measure activities on the shop floor. Production managers and supervisors also have access to various ITR reports. These production reports help them to get a holistic view of the operation helping them to make better and faster decisions about the operation.
An electronic Inspection and Test Report can help you:
Q.Shop can help you streamline your inspection process, so you can sustain the quality of your products and optimize your production.
Handling off-site jobs
Many operations are forced to use paper forms to enter their ITR inspection data. One reason could be having to do various off-site inspections. For example, inspecting a train or turbine requires an off-site inspection and as a result a paper-based process. This translates to double data entry at the end of the day.
Q.Shop’s ITR solution is born out of a real need in the industry. Using Q.Shop software, your remote or off-site team can seamlessly access the inspection forms and related instructions. Furthermore, your office team can see a live progress feed of the off-site inspection and instant communication with the inspector.
Handling several different ITR forms
Having to deal with many inspection forms is another reason why many operations are still forced to rely on paper. In an MRO (Manufacturing Repair and Overhaul) type of operation, this is a common case.
Since every customer and vendor requires their own set of inspection and test report forms, no single system can fit all those different needs. As a result, you end up printing the customer’s excel file and circulating it on the shop floor. Only to scan the result, or reenter the data to return back to your customers.
We’ve designed our solution to address industries that have to deal with hundreds of different inspection forms. Q.Shop will brings all your existing paper forms together under one Inspection and Test Report system.
