GAGEpack 11 Release Simplifies Gauge Database Management

Enhances accuracy in gauge management and measurement systems analysis

Published: Wednesday, April 16, 2014 - 10:50

(PQ Systems: Dayton, OH) -- A new release of GAGEpack from PQ Systems, provider of quality improvement software and training, offers a “super filter” feature that enables users to see only those gauges relevant to their own divisions, departments, or facilities, and for multiple departments to be managed within a single GAGEpack database.

GAGEpack is powerful gauge calibration software that saves time and enhances accuracy in gauge management and measurement systems analysis. It maintains complete histories of measurement devices, instruments, and gauges. The latest release of GAGEpack offers additional features to render the management of gauge records even more efficient and easy.

These include:
• Corporate settings, creating databasewide options that correspond to previously available local settings, providing an enterprisewide consistency of critical settings
• Corporate reports, with settings created at the database level, allowing deployment of large-scale installations of GAGEpack
• Enhanced language support for Italian, French, German, Spanish, and Spanish LA (for Latin America), as well as newly-available translations in Mandarin and Portuguese
• Masters tab to store an unlimited number of master gauges, along with relevant information about each gauge
• New Search and Replacement tools for calibration templates, master gauges, and PM plans
• Wider gauge viewing windows to assure that all available tabs are clear, with sleeker layouts for fields on each tab
• A default “Print after Saving” for calibration labels and certificates, replacing manual command and thus saving time and reducing steps
