EVOLVE 6.0 is Ready for You

October 7, 2019 – KOTEM is pleased to announce the general availability of our latest version of the powerful EVOLVE Suite of software that enabling people that work with product tolerances a better way to apply, communicate and verify a product tolerance through the enterprise.

In today many people still work with multiple providers of product tolerance (aka GD&T) that have been interpreted by various individual developers that may or may not understand the complexities and subtle differences in what a specific standard means. Compound this problem by the number of different vendor’s software products, and you have an undefined level of uncertainty and in the most demand product tolerance situation problems a source of the very problem your team faces.

What’s New in EVOLVE Suite 6.0?

The EVOLVE Suite 6.0 has been released for general shipment.

 The sixth generation of the popular SmartProfile in which the EVOLVE Suite is built from many new and powerful features and expanding EVOLVE’s purpose of providing part tolerance for all users in today’s manufacturing enterprises.

Kotem has made using GD&T (GPS) easier for each user that must work with the setting and measuring the tolerances of parts.

EVOLVE 6.0 has major new features and product improvements.

E-SPC Gage R&R

  • Study – If the metadata (PART, TRIAL, OPERATOR) is not stored in the statistics files, you can create a Gage R&R Study to associate the metadata to the existing files.
  • Directed Study – In this case, after specifying the proper parameters (PART, TRIAL, OPERATOR) and their order in the Study dialog, the software guides through the measuring process.
  • MSA reports are available from Reporting
