I-Calibration is linked with clause number 188.8.131.52 Measurement Traceablity. Requirements for what needs to be measured and the acceptance criteria may come from the customer, regulatory, industry and your own organization. Product realization planning must determine the following what specific product and process characteristics need to be monitored and measured, the criteria for product acceptance, the type of Monitoring and Measurement Device needed, frequency i.e. at what stages of realization to do it, sample size, etc. You must then determine what Monitoring and Measurement Device is appropriate for each measuring or monitoring requirement.
Consideration must be given to the measurement capability (precision) of the Monitoring and Measurement Device which may have to be several times greater than the tolerance criteria for product measurement. Monitoring and Measurement Devices may include measurement and testing tools, equipment, hardware, and software. They may be owned by your organization, your employees or the customer. Monitoring and Measurement Devices may be used to verify product as well as to measure process conformity for e.g. a temperature controller on an oven. To ensure valid measurement and monitoring results, Monitoring and Measurement Device’s must be controlled. A process is required, to control the identification of monitoring measurement, selection, purchase, status, identification, calibration, verification, adjustment or readjustment, use, handling, maintenance and storage, training, handling of nonconforming Monitoring and Measurement Device’s.
I-Calibration provides the complete software for calibration management. The solution helps to organize, control and increase the efficiency of calibration programs through a simple and intuitive web interface. I-Calibration simplifies activities such as planning, programming, execution, analysis and management of calibrations and measurements, equipment and device testing. The solution centralizes all instrument information, increasing team productivity and giving technicians easy access to documentation such as the user’s manual, warranty control, technical specifications, data sheets, activity history, reference standards, operating procedures, and calibration certificates. I-Calibration simplifies compliance efforts, helping meet the requisites established in international standards and regulations such as ISO 9001, ISO 17025
