Vaisala implements Predisys™ Quality Control and Engineering Analysis Solution

Espoo, November 8th 2006 -- Predisys Inc. announced today that Vaisala Group, a market leading Finnish company specializing in products and services for environmental and industrial measurement on a global basis, has implemented the Quality Control and Engineering Analysis Solution. Rigged to the existing manufacturing databases, the Predisys solution is a pivotal tool in gathering and analysing production information that can in turn be used in continuous product development and supply chain process quality improvement.

Focusing on streamlining the crucial interaction between R&D and production, the Predisys solution enables refining massive production data quantities into high level statistical knowledge and the seamless use of production information in real time throughout the whole organization.
