Control Points

M4 allows you to easily keep track of your metrology – everything that needs to be measured – in a way that is lightweight, yet flexible and powerful.


Omni-Assistant M4 gives you the following benefits:

Have all your data accessible in seconds

You don’t need to search through reams of papers to know what the temperature of the fridge was, at 10:00 AM on January 27th, or the pressure in a sterile room on July 9th, 3 years ago. A few clicks are all you need.

Document unexpected results

Should you encounter an out-of-expected-range result, M4 gives you the possibility to explain and document the cause of the anomaly and, if applicable, the actions that were taken to redress the situation.

Features included
Two broad types of control point : measures and questions

There are two broad types of control points: measures and questions. The measures are just that: numerical values on a scale. Questions are 1 or 0: yes or no. This is for control points that cannot be measured: “Is the floor clean?” Yes or no.

Simple grouping

Control points are grouped by address, by location and by piece of equipment. So if you have to take the temperature and humidity of a refrigerator, and then take the temperature of the room the refrigerator is in, all the control points are going to be grouped together for convenience.

Built-in verification process

For each control point, you can define a verification schedule; in effect, deciding when a control point should be double-checked.

Available Measures

The following measures are available, many of them having multiple measure units:

  • Bacterial Count
  • Concentration
  • Conductivity
  • Gas
  • Humidity
  • Luminosity
  • Osmolality
  • Pressure
  • Resistivity
  • Temperature
  • Weight
Available questions

The following questions are available: :

  • Compliant/Non-compliant
  • Non-critical/Critical
  • Normal/Abnormal
  • Yes / No
  • Regular / Irregular
  • Satisfactory / Unsatisfactory
Flexible Alerts

When a control point has an out-of-range value or a negative answer, an alert is sent. The alert can be an internal message, a ticket, an email or a text message.

Easy to read trend charts

At a glance, you can see whether that out-of-range spike was just a fluke or if it is the highest point of a borderline trend of almost-out-of-range values.
