Leading FAI software developer rolls out Version 5.0

DISCUS Software Company, a global leader in software tools for manufacturing engineering and quality assurance, announced the immediate availability of DISCUS 5.0, an update to their flagship product. This comprehensive round of software enhancements will further streamline first article inspection and process planning for quality engineers. The release includes a new product, DISCUS CMM, a revamped DISCUS OCR product, and enhanced tools and functionality to increase time savings and data accuracy for engineers.

Using the new DISCUS CMM software module, quality engineers can dramatically increase documentation efficiency. The software allows quick extraction of measurement results directly from PCDMIS text CMM reports. It also enables easy import of results into CMM reports.

Michael J. Parsley from Precision Systems Manufacturing of Liverpool, New York commented: "Since DISCUS has helped us reduce the time for First Article Inspection by over 50%, we're a very satisfied user. We're excited about new features coming out in DISCUS 5.0."

Also included in the 5.0 release, several enhancements to DISCUS OCR will increase optical character recognition accuracy and decrease the engineers' time investment. A new set of comprehensive controls allows quality engineers to adjust settings to exact specification, extract detailed requirements from documentation, and populate inspection report part lists and product accountability information.

DISCUS Basic and Planner modules, core DISCUS tools to manage the Technical Data Package, also receive updates in DISCUS 5.0. Improved drawing and revision functionality allows users to create even more exacting inspection and manufacturing process plans.

"We are constantly listening to our manufacturers to learn what will make FAI processes more manageable, and DISCUS 5.0 represents the most comprehensive set of FAI software tools developed to date" said Bob Roush, General Manager of DISCUS Software.
