Overview and Benefits

DataLyzer Email Notification Service

This module consists of the Notification Manager, the Service Manager and the Service Engine. In an environment where continuous improvement is important communication is essential. Communication between shop floor and supporting departments but also communication between production and engineering. In the DataLyzer Quality Suite there are all kinds of relations where communication is important.

To give you a few examples: 
- Out of controls or out of spec situations on the shop floor where production management or production engineers need to be informed
- Corrective actions taken on the shop floor needs to be reported to teamleaders or to production engineers working on the relevant FMEAs
- Actions overdue in the FMEA or CAPA system
- Calibrations overdue in the Gage Management system
- Changes in documents or specifications
- etc, etc.

All these situations require an extremely flexible notification system which will continuously be expanded to support all relevant events in a flexible manner.

 
  • The Notification Manager


DataLyzer Notification Manager is a configuration tool used to setup a notification system. Users can configure the system by subscribing to events occurring in DataLyzer software applications and send/receive customised messages with the desired information to designated user(s) or user group(s). Mail contents can be completely configured in the preferred language

 

  • The Service Engine


DataLyzer Service Engine acts as a manager for all the jobs added to it, e.g. the notification job. It runs as a windows service in the background and is uninterrupted. The Service Engine identifies new jobs added through the service manager and schedules them as per the settings provided. The Service Engine can continue to run some jobs and stop others depending on the requirement of the user.

 

  • The Service Manager


The Service Engine Manager can be used to configure jobs and notifications in case jobs fail. The service manager is the framework  to support all kind of special jobs in the future.

 

  • Jobs

A Job is simply a background task scheduled by DataLyzer. The job or jobs running in the DataLyzer Service typically run to schedule and periodically and carry out tasks or execute background operations. These jobs are ancillary to the DataLyzer modules. “FMEA Actions Due” job for example, works along with the DataLyzer FMEA application.
