Calibration software

calibration software is an applications that automate all or part of a calibration process via computer control. Calibration software also allows the user to manage their calibration and asset data.
Calibration Software include data-logging software, software that generates calibration constants and references, and various add-on and plug-in software programs.

Use of a Calibration software

Using a calibration software to automate all or part of the calibration process offers several important advantages.
Consistency
Software automation ensures that the calibration can be performed exactly the same way by multiple operators in multiple locations, and over time. This improves the quality of your results, reduces errors and standardizes methods.

Efficiency
Automating the calibration process allows technicians to set up tests and then go on to perform other tasks, making more efficient use of their time. Calibrations are typically completed much more quickly, saving time and money. If the software is capable of calibrating multiple units under test simultaneously, automation increases throughput as well.

Documentation and reports
Calibration automation software typically includes features for documenting calibration procedures, storing calibration data, and producing reports, allowing you to eliminate paper records or spreadsheets.

Because calibration software does such a wonderful job of keeping accurate records of all parts of the calibration process, it can also help you comply with a wide variety of quality standards.

Common quality standards

ISO/IEC 17025

ISO 9000

ANSI Z540

Selecting a Calibration software

Handling of required workload

Make sure the software selected is compatible with calibration instruments and the workload. Analysis of future requirement is needed to understand what the needs might be one, five or even ten years from now. A scalable solution chosen that can grow with as needs change.

Features

Powerful enterprise solution with lots of features are needed for complex systems. Where as automate a single calibrator or type of calibrator need not have sophisticated features

User-friendly

Select software designed to have intuitive interface by someone who understands the calibration process

Work capably

Good calibration software should reduce cost, help with lab productivity, do more calibrations in the same or less amount of time, enable fast and repeatable calibration

Software flexibility

Calibration software should provide the flexibility to be installed on single workstations as well as company-wide networks and multiple users access to the system from different locations

Meet regulatory and quality requirements

Calibration software should support the traceability and record-keeping requirements of modern quality and accreditation standards, including ISO/IEC 17025, ISO 9000, QS 9000, EN 45000, ANSI Z540, and MIL STD 45662A, without having to write your own programs, set up your own databases, or test and document the system

Data management

Good calibration software can manage data from different applications like electrical, temperature, pressure, flow, or dimensional calibration, all the in one database depending on company preference.

Training availability

Calibration software developer should provide training to help staff get up and running quickly.

Support availability

Good calibration software developers have wide support network.
Some software developers offer premium support programs that help you maximize productivity and minimize downtown.
Look for other types of available support as well, including user groups, online forums, technical and application notes and other informative materials.
