Practical tools for everyday use

Manufacturing engineers and quality engineers have to analyze the Technical Data Package (TDP) in great detail to create company-specific plans. It is the specific part characteristics and requirements contained in the models, drawings, and specifications that have to be identified and extracted to create many of the downstream plans and documentation.

First Article Inspection - FAI, Technical Data Package - TDP

DISCUS is specifically designed to enable you to organize an intelligent TDP and quickly capture all the requirements. DISCUS generates a “Bill of Characteristics” that acts as the linchpin to help reduce the time and labor for these tasks:

First Article Inspection – DISCUS enables you to quickly and completely create a detailed First Article Inspection (FAI) Report.

Inspection Planning – DISCUS enables you to generate detailed internal inspection plans by operation, or integrate the effort with FAI planning.

Process Planning – DISCUS helps you create manufacturing documentation from the Bill of Characteristics, including detailed process illustrations.

Supplier Management – DISCUS helps you collaborate with your suppliers by sharing the TDP and inspection results.

To avoid long drawn-out implementations, the DISCUS software does not require complex IT installations. In addition, DISCUS is intuitive enough that you can become productive in just a few hours of use. Most importantly, the business benefits from DISCUS are significant. For example, many customers have discovered that the DISCUS tool has paid for itself in less than a month.
