What do you like best?

1factory is a simple product to use in any setting and for any skill level employee. The team at 1factory was extremely knowledgeable and easily picked up on our business processes and requirements. Our timeline to implement was extremely tight and they worked tirelessly to help us hit our targets. The level of communication we received from 1factory was some of the best I have ever seen! They scheduled weekly reviews, sent action sheets out after each meeting and were available whenever a call was needed. Simply put, the entire team was pleasant to work with. If you are looking for a solution that is easy to use, a team that can meet your needs and a simple process, 1factory is the software for you. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

From first contact to implementation, the process was efficient and made easy. There is nothing I dislike about working with 1factory. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were looking for a software that could balloon drawings, help create inspection plans, control plans, PFMEA, record in-process inspection, pull data from 23 different CMMs and various Bluetooth inspection devices, record calibration data and be easy to use for all skill levels.

The 1factory solution will speed up all of our processes in Operations and Quality. We are able to condense 5 different quality systems into one easy to use system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Huge time saver creating Manufacturing plan, FAIR Bubble Drawings, and CMM data import! This software is intuitive and in our experience training is a walk-through on how we use it. Being able to automatically record hundreds of dimensions electronically via our CMM's is quick and easy; recalling data with filters helps us review feature performance. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

1factory's customer support has always cared and listened to any issues we might have in the way that we use the software. They have always shown a sense of urgency when issues are detected and create a solution in a reasonable time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Specifically designed for collecting inspection data as required for monitoring and analysis purpose. Extremely easy for entering inspections data & quality inspectors can smoothly handle entire software. Data retrieval by single click and customized searching of data available. Control on changes in inspection plan or report makes this software completely reliable. Real time data access through cloud based system makes controlling manufacturing remotely. Real time graphs of any parameter provide you the monitoring of current trend of manufacturing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

After using 1factory more than 1.5 years, still no drawback observed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have moved from preparing inspection reports in Excel to 1factory software. This saves our lot of time of preparation of reports & concentrate on Quality inspection activities. We have some complex requirements like different stages of inspection, different parameters as per inspection stages & different sampling plans for different parameters and inspection stages. All this managed to incorporate in 1factoy software easily. All our inspection plans, measuring methods, sampling criteria etc. remain as it is. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The 1Factory software has many benefits and has helped reduce errors related to sending out of spec parts to our customers by identifying keying entry errors and actual out-of-spec conditions as they occur during data entry. The ability to add Mfg & Inspection Plans allows for consistent data input & automated inspection with the ability to graphically view trends & overall capability analyses. The report output also adds to the reduction of "transfer of information" errors and contains all information in a common repository for easy retrieval of both current and historical data. The ability to output FAI reporting data with automated linkage to drawings is an additional strength that has been helpful over the past few years of use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The linkage of the customer's part number to our own internal part number doesn't seem to allow search of part number through the use of the internal part number which is actually used more than the customer's part number. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

FAI reports are easier to manage. Data transfer errors are reduced for inspection reports. Data that is out of spec for an actual OOS condition, or for keying errors is immediately identifiable. Working towards be able to capture inspection data as it happens for real time inspection data entry instead of transfer of info at time of shipment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

This software have many specific capabilities that make it a key part of our QMS and day to day operation at our company.

One of the most useful features is the Master Gage library, this can set up reminders for calibration, calibration history, serial numbers, attachments and practically anything to manage complex environments like ours with many hand gauges, tools and equipment. It gives you easy to understand color coded warnings to alert you that some of your gages and equipment are due for calibration. Plus it has built-in sorting capabilities to easily find the record that you are looking for, you can download your entire library and edit it through a spreadsheet and re upload it with all the changes saved.

What do you dislike?

All of the things that we have had issues with have been solved very quickly with Nipun's help, even the little problems that we have had sometimes have been solved just by knowing the way the software works and the language it understands. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

1factory is a great software! It comes with full SPC capabilities, the inspection reports are made in one click, their gage management module makes it very easy to keep track of all your equipment. Most of all, it is easy to implement, it is not intimidating for new users so it makes people want to use it! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The way that we were tracking internal audits and findings was not the best, we struggled for some time trying to find the best way to not only create and maintain the records but also collaborating in the improvement process after a decision on how to approach the root cause of the problem. Their audit module is very complete it has two different templates of keeping audit records (basic and 8D). 1Factory made it easy to share your thoughts, comments, findings with your team and even assign tasks from each record, their 8D approach makes it easy to train new internal auditors in completing the audit, creating and filing their reports. Everything is saved automatically online so there is never a risk of loosing your information.

The inspection module is very very good, I love that you can add all the requirements directly with a click from the print, the group edit for your sampling makes it easy to develop control plans for all our inspection needs and separating them through the different stages based on our customer requirements.

I like to see the reports, which show dimensions that may be trending a certain way. With this, we can do tool modifications before we run any bad parts. Dimensional data input is quick & easy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The most difficult area of 1factory is getting our csv data to import correctly. However, once we get the initial program complete, it is pretty much seamless thereafter. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Please continue to make it easier importing csv files generated from PC-DMIS into 1factory. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We purchased 1factory for the cpk reports it could generate for us at the end of each production run. Now, at the end of each run, we save the reports & send them any time our customer requests to see a cpk study on certain dimensions. The main benefit with 1factory is having a quick and easy way to import dimensions and the ability to see if anything in our process needs to be tweaked during or after our production run.

There are way too many good things about this software to cover it all in this post. This software really simplifies the inspection process. It allows you to create inspection plans in a short amount of time. This includes creating a ballooned drawing where every dimension is conditionally formatted. The software also has a built in calibration log which reminds you when your calibrations are due.Once you have an inspection plan, you can easily create a fully comprehensive inspection package. There are also constant improvements always being added to the software and the support team is very quick to respond whenever there is a question. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

1Factory is easy to use. This sounds like a basic criteria for any software, but elegance is in simplicity and this tool delivers.

1Factory brings life to your dusty control plans and has enabled a different level of integration with our key suppliers on high risk parts. We have great plans for using this tool to drive a higher degree of risk management with our high risk parts and suppliers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the lack of customization can be an issue, but whenever there is a feature or function that is truly needed by my team, the 1Factory team is helpful in both working through those needs and delivering a solution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The tool delivers on it's promise. To make it truly successful there needs to be an organizational strategy around the concept of cloud based supplier quality management, and internal champions to drive the implementation and deployment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the problem of stale and dusty control plans, and lack of supplier monitoring of quality data. To date we have found issues with measurement resolution on key features, and we use this data to drive discussion and improvement from the supplier. We have also found cases where the distribution of data suggests abnormal processing (scrap, rework, fine tuning), and our team can dig on those issues before they become a problem that impacts revenue.

This software helped us go from handwritten excel spreadsheets to a totally digital/cloud-based system. The initial setup was far less complicated than we had imagined as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only critique I may have is that there could be more ways to hold up an inspection entry from being passed through for review if it is missing dimensions. This is almost always caught in review, though, so not a huge deal. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Paper inspections that were hard to read and cumbersome to fill out are all gone now. It's quicker and more efficient in general. PPAPs are easier. The NCR process is top-notch and aligns with industry best-practices. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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 previously used software to 1factory. As a QE the reporting side is my favorite tool that 1factory has. Before 1factory it would take a couple of days to gather all the information needed to present to the board once a month. Now with 1factory the reports make themselves, just make sure you are filling in all the required information. MSA uses the NCR charts to attack areas that need attention, whether it be supplier defects or reoccurring shop floor defects. This drives Corrective Action, which 1factory also as superb CAPA module that has a task management side to drive actions with dates! The time it used to take me to write inspections plans is cut down tremendously with being able to click on dimensions and setting frequencies to check said dimensions at. This also takes the human error out of it when looking at drawing with 50+ dimensions. Another plus is the visibility, everyone that has a seat on the software can see tasks, PPM's (Internally & externally) & supplier performance. Another plus was the customization that Nipun and his team provide. They are always striving to make this software even greater than it already is. Since we have started around a year ago our wish for Gage management, Audit findings & Approved Vendor list has been achieved and is live. Nipun and his team are always available to work through any issues we have had and they have came up with a plan to work out any issues we have had. Which is not much. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I honestly cannot say I dislike anything about this software. It has been night and day compared to what I was working with 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would consider anyone looking for a QMS software to try this out. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This software has solved the problem with preparing long inspections plans, that are open to human error. Cutting the time to write monthly reports which is now done by the click of a mouse. 1factory has helped with task management and driving actions with dates.
