Qualer is excited to announce our latest feature release! Please see the following highlights of our new features.  


Enhancements & Innovations


Asset Performance and Service Interval Analysis Module 

  1. Statistical Interval Analysis 
    • By considering the current Out-of-Tolerance (OOT) rate and a desired reliability, Qualer can help you find the balance between:
      • Achieving desired reliability by shortening service intervals and reducing OOT events.
      • Preventing over-servicing and reducing costs by safely and scientifically extending service intervals, all while keeping the number of OOT events below the desired threshold.
  2. Service Record Statistical Analysis  
    • Statistical analysis can be run on a subset of service records to analyze the performance of the specific product types, brand manufacturers, sites, departments, or service providers. This information can be valuable for selecting the most reliable vendors or product brands.
  3. Statistical Interval Analysis for Client Assets 
    • You can use interval analysis not just for your assets but also for any client assets you manage. This helps identify opportunities to make proactive client recommendations, allowing improved asset reliability. It may also help you analyze the quality of your work concerning specific types of assets, clients, or calibration services. 
  4. Automatic Notification of Interval Change Suggestions 
    • You can now subscribe to receive notifications about interval change advice. As more work is done and more statistical data is gathered, Qualer will continue to monitor your intervals, and notifications can be triggered when a maintenance schedule has new advice.

Asset Performance Grading

Qualer's individual asset performance grading system supplements statistical analysis. It generates recall advice based on recent calibration events, suggesting whether an asset needs servicing sooner or can be recalled later. The system helps identify "bad actors" affecting the OOT rate, enabling organizations to replace them instead of changing service intervals for entire groups of assets. This optimizes maintenance and minimizes downtime.

Asset Metrics 


Asset metrics can be defined and associated with any asset type. Organizations can then track each asset's metrics like runtime, mileage, number of activations, non-compliance events, parameter thresholds, etc. A full history of metric changes is kept as individual asset metric records. Each metric can be analyzed individually or alongside other metrics on a common timeline.

Asset metrics can be added manually, captured directly in the work order at the time of service, or updated automatically from usage sensors.

Usage-Based or Event-Based Maintenance


Asset metrics can be linked to maintenance plans and tasks, allowing organizations to trigger service events based on certain parameters getting out of range or reaching certain milestones. Combined with automatic work order creation, this feature streamlines work order generation and enables rapid response to equipment maintenance needs, enhancing the traditional time-based scheduling approach.

Asset Management


Asset Status


Assets can now be grouped and filtered by their lifecycle status: 

  • New (ready for induction)
  • Active (in use)
  • Inactive (temporarily out of service)
  • Failed (out of service due to a failure)
  • Retired (decommissioned)

When the asset is not in an active state, scheduled service events will not be triggered. This allows us to keep assets on maintenance plans but exclude them from becoming due or past due until it is back in service.


Automatic Status Changes


When a calibration event reveals issues, assets can be configured to automatically set the "Failed" status, preventing unintended use due to error or neglect. Additionally, this configuration can mark a parent asset as Failed if a component fails in a multi-component asset system.

Multi-Component Asset Systems

Multi-component asset systems are now easier to manage. 

  • Quicker navigation between the parent and sub-components.
  • Easier to add subcomponents to the work order along with the parent asset.
  • Enumeration and drag-n-drop re-ordering of asset components.

Asset Maintenance Report

A new "Asset Maintenance Report" produces a list of assets with the last service record for each maintenance plan in Excel format from within the Asset Manager.

Maintenance Plan Notification Suppression

Notifications can now be suppressed on individual maintenance plans. Disabling notifications is especially useful for high-frequency plans, like daily ones, to reduce notification overload and ensure you don't overlook critical alerts.

Pagination & Navigation

Page Navigation is now available above tables to streamline access and minimize scrolling.

Reverse Traceability Analysis

The Outcome Analysis tab in the work item manager lets you analyze and filter calibration results using parameters like TAR, TUR, TOL%, and OOT%. You can also narrow down results to a specific reference standard, helping identify work orders impacted by a failing reference standard while considering the degree of failure.

Filtering Work Orders by Service Type

The Work Orders screen now has an additional filter allowing organizations to view work orders with specific service capabilities or service levels.

Expanded Work Item Export 

New columns have been added to the work items Excel export: TOL, TAR, TUR, CompletedByEmail, OrderOwnerEmail, AssetCustodianName, AssetCustodianEmail 


Tools & Specifications

New Specification Editor 

The upgraded specification editor now supports formulas and influence quantities. Specifications can also vary on a non-measured parameter, e.g. tool accuracy depends on the calibration interval. Influence quantities and parameters can be passed from the measurement form to select the correct specification when multiple specifications are defined in the same specification sheet.

Tool Ranges and Multi-Point Uncertainties


Tool ranges and uncertainty specifications now support multiple uncertainty points and different uncertainties for multiple channels. Measurement uncertainty is correctly determined based on the channel number and the nearest match to the measured nominal value. When a nominal value lands between two uncertainty points, the higher (or "worst-case") uncertainty of the adjacent points is applied. This approach guarantees precision by adopting the more conservative uncertainty when a nominal value is positioned between two benchmarks.

Automatic Update of the UUT/Tool Uncertainties

Qualer now automatically updates the accuracy and uncertainty of a unit under test, ensuring it remains a reliable and current reference standard. With calibration performed in Qualer, manual entry of updated certificate information is no longer required.

Calibration Forms 

Expanded Calibration Forms 

Calibration forms now support multiple influence parameters and accurately perform uncertainty calculations based on the combination of parameter ranges and reference standards.

Additional measurement scenarios are added:

  • Repeated measurement runs.
  • Up/down readings with hysteresis calculation.
  • Double substitution method for mass calibration.

Required Checklist Tasks

Checklist items can now be marked as "Required", ensuring that the end-user completes specific checklist items before completing the fulfillment of the order.

Improved Custom Fields  


Custom fields have been introduced at the measurement point level, offering enhanced data granularity.

Additionally, the default values of these fields can be dynamically calculated based on other field inputs and parameters. This update also enables interconnected updates across multiple custom fields, allowing for seamless "chain reactions" of data adjustments based on interdependencies.


Per-reading Environment Tracking


Tracking of environmental condition variations is now possible between individual readings, integrating these fluctuations into the pass/fail result.

Revision Notes in Certificates


Certificate Revisions can now populate a note/reason to comply with ISO requirements.

Uncertainty Calculation Detail Capture  


All uncertainty calculation details can now be saved along with each measurement for further review and auditor access.

  • Reference tables.
  • Data arrays and aggregation functions.
  • Statistical functions.
  • Hysteresis variables.
