What is 1factory?

1factory’s Manufacturing Quality is quality control software that promises to simplify and speed up quality control tasks carried out by manufacturers. Targeting the aerospace, automotive, medical, machining and semiconductor industries among others, the solution provides features for first article inspection (FAI) such as PDF drawing ballooning and automated reporting. Balloons can be added and dimensional data captured on a point and click basis, generating first article reports in Excel spreadsheet, PPAP and AS9102 formats. Quality control plans can also be generated in a choice of ways and reused, automatically applying revision controls and historical change logs. Receiving, in-process and final inspections can be captured, organized and monitored in real time with histograms and charts before sharing final inspection data direct to customers from inside the software.

Pros
Thank you to the support team this is amazing. I will recomendó it to all my friend in QC.
Not only is the software great, the service they provide, and the quick response to what you need is just top of the line great.
This software is amazing what it can do. The efficiency and cost effectiveness alone was a big win for us.
Cons
I find it hard to believe that this wouldn't work wonders for you.
That was QUICKLY remedied by Nipun and his staff. They're still hard at work adding more and more functionality and addressing all of our needs.
Cutting the time to write monthly report which is now done by the click of a mouse.

The software has been instrumental in keeping us compliant with ISO 9001 and IATF 16949

Reviewed 4 years ago

The ease of use has allowed our company to quickly scale this sector and provide both Internal and External customers the ability to document from receiving inspection all the way though to production and customer satisfaction. This software is very useful for Quality Assurance implementation, maintenance and documentation.

Pros

The software is easy to use and learn. I have been in the Quality Assurance world for quite some time now and find that both new and seasoned persons would appreciate the simplistic, yet elegant, approach to quality. This software would not only help companies who have never had a CAPA/8D or quality assurance department, it also helps structure and document receiving inspection, supplier CAPA, Internal CAPA. The simplistic way that it produces reporting is a great and useful tool for anyone looking to gain or maintain compliance with regulatory bodies (ISO/AS/IATF) as well as keeping customer satisfaction high with quick reporting/number assisgnments to CAPA/8D reports.

Cons

There are no short comings to this software. Anytime I hit any type of bottleneck, I have been able to reach out to 1Factory and an immediate solution is brought forth by the developers. Great response.

Critical platform for mfg. business that has a dynamic product mix.

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall great experience. Customer service is outstanding and they are always open to feedback on features and UX or creating a custom CMM import template. The workflow is also fast which makes creating new plans and updating plans very easy, removing common frustrations when creating quality documentation. Using a system that is cloud based and accessible anywhere has also elevated our user participation within our organization. Users like the workflow, ease of use and the data visibility.

Pros

Ease of use creating and revising inspection plans - the workflow is fast. Easily update a specification or an entire rev change in minutes. The automatic data analytics within the plans is also a huge time saver. Having the non-conforming (NCR) reporting within the QC system and linked to specific dimension(s) is also hugely beneficial within the QC system.

Cons

Data backup doesn't save out ballooned drawings.

Worth the Investment

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

If you work in Quality Control, this will be the most powerful tool you can use day-to-day. Within days our production floor experienced 40% less non-conformances . As a defense contractor, our customers appreciated the AS9102 format and our inspectors now spend more time actually inspecting now that reports are seamlessly generated.

Cons

There is a slight learning curve for this software, but this can be easily overcome even for the most basic user. Just make sure you spend the time reading the tutorials/introduction training - you won't regret it!

Vendor response

We welcome user feedback and reviews, but we believe this review is fake. We do not have a record of this customer (The Opl Group), and this user (Jennifer Dado) ever starting a trial or purchasing a subscription to our product.

So far away and yet so close

Reviewed 6 months ago

I'm very happy for all the help and support that we receive from the 1factory team! If I have a question, I will have the response within max. 24 hours. The theam takes all improvement initiatives very serious, I we have already receiced a lot of changes/updates in our system.

Pros

It is so easy to baloon the drawings, and to update excisting drawing in case of change. Very fast to create new controlplans and FMEAs and to update the FMEA due to customer complaints. Before making inspection, you check the calibration og your gage and it is linked to your measurements.

Cons

I would like more options in the analysis tool. Fx. select how many NCR's we have had for each process pr. month.

All in one QMS

Reviewed 4 years ago

This software has solved the problem with writing long inspections plans, that are open to human error. Cutting the time to write monthly report which is now done by the click of a mouse. Has helped with task management and driven actions with by dates, which as a QE I love because you are no longer tracking people down for answers.

Pros

The ease of use is definitely a plus when using and training personnel on this software. All inspectors were trained within one business day, which helps with the transition from a dated software to 1factory. As a QE the reporting side is my favorite tool that 1factory has. before one factory it would take a couple days to gather all the information needed to present to the board once a month. Now...

Cons

I honestly cannot say I dislike anything about this software. It has been night and day compared to what I was working prior to 1 factory. Nipun and his team are working towards new additions to the software that we have requested and it seems like the sky is the limit with them.
