Software Allows Importers to Monitor Chinese Quality Control via the Internet

September 18, 2007

TrueLogic Co., based in Plano, Texas, has produced a software package designed to help companies track, monitor, and improve consistency and quality in chemical manufacturing processes. It allows remote monitoring of these production processes by customers, importers, and quality auditors via the Internet.

The software, called TrueChem, is particularly promising for Chinese manufacturers and the U.S. companies that import their products. TrueChem offers the latest in chemical analysis and statistical control for companies involved in wet process manufacturing, metal finishing, and plating operations, as well as their customers. In addition, just about any type of manufacturing process that requires close monitoring via laboratory or instrumentation of quality control processes would benefit from the software.

Taking the guesswork out of such activities promotes consistency and quality while reducing the chance of harmful deviations from content specifications. For example, it can provide automatic enforcement for testing of lead in paint being manufactured for toys or other household items. It could also be used to monitor and improve batch testing of pet food or candy without deviation or disruption. Even more promising is the ability for customers or importers to track these processes and quality control via the Internet, even without having the software loaded on their own computer.

"We find this system provides significant advantages for both manufacturers and their customers," said Matt Akin, President of TrueLogic. "Supply chain quality control engineers can have a dashboard on their desks in the U.S. that provides the current status of processes and quality control operations of suppliers around the world. And the manufacturers themselves use the software for continual improvement."
