Created by Discus Software Company, DISCUS is a software which permits to reduce the duration of the First Article Inspection (FAI) process to its half by providing a faster method for documentation and management processes.
Today, subcontractors register all FAI measurements manually—dimension by dimension—on an Excel sheet. Thanks to DISCUS, the measurement data is automatically synchronized to the customer’s database. Without the need of manual registration and printing, data is sent to DISCUS software during 3D measurement.
Required time for the measurement of 100 dimensions: approximately 3 hours. With DISCUS: approximately 30 seconds.
