ASI DataMyte Introduces New Audit Manager System

Plymouth, MN January 24, 2005. ASI DataMyte, Inc. announces the release of the new Audit Manager system. Audit Manager provides an automated, cost-effective solution for containment and suspect lot audits for high volume, physically large, serialized products.

Applications for the Audit Manager include automotive assembly, sub-assembly fabrication, major appliance assembly, and other large products such as motorcycles, lawn mowers, tractors, snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles.

Some of the benefits of the Audit Manager system include:

o Defect-free shipments available for scheduled delivery

o Elimination of paper-based check sheets and reports

o Error-free data collection

o Rapid payback - Audit Manager may pay for itself with as little as a one percent reduction in time and labor.

Audit Manager is used when a defect is discovered on the manufacturing line, and a particular serial number, such as an automotive VIN, is identified. Because many products have been manufactured since the defect was discovered, an operator is sent to the shipping area to locate the products, check them for defects, record the results, and ensure that repairs are completed before shipment.

The Audit Manager system provides an automated solution that eliminates paper check sheets and data re-entry for these audits. The system consists of:

o An ASI DataMyte handheld programmable data collector that lets operators check for specific defects.

o A portable scanner for recording serial or VIN number barcodes.

o Audit Manager software for setting up data collectors and generating appropriate reports.

The 501Y data collector is designed specifically to receive audit information from Audit Manager software, collect data for an audit, and upload that data back to Audit Manager.

With Audit Manager software, the data collector can be quickly programmed with a list of serial numbers and defects to be checked, or a single serial number may be scanned in to conduct a random subject lot audit.

After operators have checked all unshipped product for suspected defects, data can be uploaded to generate useful reports that describe units that are OK to ship, units needing rework, and serial numbers not found.
