Uster introduces Alarm Center to improve quality issues

Spinners around the world share a combination of requirements, controlling quality through immediate actions, while improving productivity. Keeping this in mind, Uster, a provider of quality management solutions, responded with Alarm Center, one of five value modules included with Uster quality expert that prompts early intervention in quality issues.  Key processes are monitored, and performance is displayed on a dashboard. It allows spinners to recognise problems at a glance, enabling immediate reactions. Smart algorithms and in-built Uster application intelligence ensure reliable alerting. The application intelligence embedded in assistant Q can immediately recognise issues, with no need for configuration by the spinner. Users receive problem-solving suggestions, and can also expand the knowledge base with actions they enter themselves. The learning system grows according to customer needs and ensures that relevant know-how is retained in mills. The Alarm Center is also available on a mobile app, for quality management that is independent of time and location. There is no limit to the number of app users with one quality expert system. Mobile alerts can be used by as many staff as required, to suit the mill’s organisation of processes and responsibilities. Since the launch of the standalone version of Uster quality expert, the community of Uster mobile alerts app users has grown more rapidly. Uster quality expert standalone connects Uster quality testing and monitoring instruments and leverages their value towards significant profitability gains. With the new standalone version, a relatively small investment means cotton spinners can quickly optimise quality and profitability at the same time. Mobile alerts shows critical issues and the Alarm Center provides negative alarms as well as positive ones. That means it points out quality issues but also suggests potential improvements.  “I very much appreciate the positive information, as improvement is part of the game. If you don’t improve you will stay behind.” With the latest release of Uster Quality Expert, alarms and improvements are listed separately for fast focus on serious issues – and for making quality managers easily aware of so far unnoticed improvement possibilities,” Muhammad Ashraf, general manager at Sangzor spinning mills, said in a press release. Before the introduction of Uster mobile alerts, it was more difficult for spinners to see alarms. Now, quality management has become both safer and easier, as issues can be identified and located immediately. Problem-solving guidance is also another popular feature, as the app proves its worth across different staff groups, such as lab personnel, maintenance managers and all who share responsibility for professional quality supervision. “Thanks to Uster quality assurance systems, textile spinning gradually becomes easier,” Ashraf said. “I enjoy Uster Quality Expert. It gathers and analyses our online and offline results and keeps sending quality alerts and exceptions with possible root causes displayed graphically on my mobile phone 24/7 – and it’s good news that Uster Quality Expert expands its insightful analytics with valuable intelligence as each additional instrument is connected.”
