Critical Capabilities

Ideagen’s first article inspection software works by linking design requirements via an electronically ballooned drawing to AS9102B and or other customised forms. These requirements can be captured or data mined using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) which speeds up the process dramatically and can read engineering symbols such as Ø and GD&T direct from the drawing.

The software also takes advantage of data created on your other business systems. For example, Bill of Material information can be imported from your ERP system to ensure child parts within the assembly structure are identified.
