The BlackBelt Manufacturing suite is the core product platform integrating all IntraStage solutions in a single interface. The BlackBelt suite is designed to automate the capture, retrieval, storage, reporting and visualization of product manufacturing and quality data. By tying together the parametric-level data that is the digital thread that ties together manufacturing, supplier quality, returned materials authorization/RMA, R&D and Repair.

The BlackBelt series of products is available via a cloud-hosted solution, an on-premise installation, or as a “plug and play” device. These features are tightly integrated with our other product offerings such as Failure Analysis, Return Analysis, Supplier Quality Inspection, and Paperless Manufacturing, delivering a fully featured solution to help our customers improve their product quality and manufacturing efficiency.

Failure Analysis Product Details

Any complex manufacturing environment has silos of the Hidden Factory. The Hidden Factory, where un-tracked repairs and rework are conducted on the manufacturing line, is a key factor in process and quality improvement.

The IntraStage Failure Analysis software helps our customers

  • Automate and track the workflow and data for repair and rework actions
  • Bring to to light such key analytics as
    • Mean Time Between Failures/MTBF
    • Failure Codes
    • Rework details
    • Rework procedures and optimization for parent and child assemblies.
    • In-Warranty Failure Components and Modes
    • Tracking and managing the kind of critical performance and quality data that allows nascent quality issues to be caught and tracked before they become line-stopping issues.

Return Analysis Product Details

Existing RMA systems capture the logistics of returned materials, but what about the root cause?  IntraStage customers are able to track the workflow of RMAs and manufacturing parts flagged for RMA to understand why their products are having field failures.

  • Return paretos characterized by reason
    • Returns by lot
    • Returns by Work Order
    • Returns by board revision
    • Returns by software revision
    • Returns by failing component
    • …and more
  • Quickly identify trends and actionable information derived from their RMA and Field Return data. 
  • Identify Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF)
  • Increase a product line’s profitability and brand reputation. 
  • Tie field failures to original manufacturing escapes and supplier quality data to quickly address quality issues.

Supplier and CM Quality Management Product Details

A quality issue in a batch of supplier parts can mean shortages on the line, or even a production stoppage. Or worse, a quality change in the supplier might result in more subtle changes that escape existing final tests. Collaboration between OEMs, CMs and Suppliers allows you to optimize the quality of your worldwide manufacturing chain. IntraStage customers are able to

  • see real-time information on supplier quality through inspection at the source.
  • Identify marginal or failing components
    • Performance of measurement values against spec and control limits)
  • Collaborate with suppliers to address quality issues even before they arrive at the incoming dock at your assembly factory.
