Real-time SPC Software

We offer real-time best-in-class Statistical Process Control software WinSPC!

WinSPC software for the process industry

WinSPC is real-time statistical process control (SPC) software with over 2500 installed facilities worldwide; it is used to improve product quality, reduce process variation, and optimize manufacturing processes. WinSPC collects process data from the shop floor and transforms it into real-time, actionable quality information.

WinSPC details revealed

To remain competitive, manufacturers must consistently make high quality products for the lowest possible price. WinSPC’s Cost Inspector™ drives this goal by enabling quality teams to uncover and minimize loss attributed to process variation and non-optimized processes. Quality professionals can use the Cost Inspector to identify the often hidden cost of give-away, overfill, rework, or scrap that weaken a company’s profits.

Direct benefits:

  • Minimize loss from variation and process shift
  • Deliver reports in terms of money saved
  • Calculate money saved by reducing variation
  • Calculate money saved by shifting processes to optimal mean
  • Prioritize activities based upon greatest potential for savings

Uncover hidden costs

WinSPC's data collection features enable manufacturers to quickly and accurately capture and manage product and process data from nearly any shop-floor source, including: serial devices, text files, machines, gages, databases, and other manufacturing systems. WinSPC's data collection features offer the fastest, easiest way for quality engineers to quickly gather manual input, connect to devices, and capture data from other manufacturing sources.

Direct benefits:

  • Enable visibility into shop-floor processes
  • Understand and improve processes
  • Support continuous improvement and Lean Six Sigma programs
  • Increase responsiveness
  • Make data-driven decisions

Capture quality data

To minimize the cost of quality, more and more companies are adopting preventative and predictive methods for manufacturing quality control. Real-time SPC software is a proven, fundamental tool used to detect, and ultimately prevent, process errors that lead to defects, scrap or waste. WinSPC's real-time SPC control charts graphically display real-time, actionable information to operators and managers. This empowers personnel to detect and correct out-of control situations, minimize variation, and continuously improve the manufacturing process. The result? Higher quality products and a more cost-effective, capable process.

Key benefits:

  • Minimize variation
  • Reduce scrap, waste, rework
  • Empower personnel with actionable intelligence
  • Promote Lean Manufacturing

Monitor Processes in Real Time

To realize superior manufacturing agility and profitability, manufacturers must do more than identify product and process quality issues they must quickly respond to and resolve them.

WinSPC offers the most "out-of-the-box" events and triggers of any SPC software on the market today. Use WinSPC triggers to alert personnel, execute custom programs, shut down machines, or engage other systems. Whether your requirements consist of simply notifying a supervisor of a nonconformance or triggering a more complex process within a corrective action system.

WinSPC allows you to close the quality loop from "detection-to-correction."

Key benefits:

  • Shorten time-to-resolution
  • Enable a closed-loop continuous improvement process
  • Ease the cost of compliance to regulatory requirements
  • Enhance continuous improvement, lean and Six Sigma efforts
  • Streamline nonconformance processes

To increase productivity, empower personnel, and reduce waste, it is critical that your managers be armed with the right information. WinSPC’s Plant Monitor gives plant management, quality inspectors, and manufacturing supervisors a bird’s eye view of shop floor processes, enabling them to resolve problems faster, manage more effectively, and improve plant performance.

Direct benefits:

  • Gain a bird's eye view of production
  • Identify and correct process errors faster
  • Manage by exception
  • Integrate management and stakeholders with plant floor performance
  • Improve efficiency and effectiveness
  • Streamline nonconformance processes

Manage plant-wide performance

To continually understand, interpret, and improve product and process quality, manufacturers require advanced statistical analysis tools and access to timely manufacturing data. WinSPC and Custom Web Reporter™ provide a rich set of SPC and SQA analysis tools to enable point-of-production and historical statistical analysis. Because WinSPC collects and stores all plant floor data, companies are able to retain data integrity and reproduce analysis at any time.

Direct benefits:

  • Perform point-of-production and historical statistical analysis
  • Make fast, data-driven decisions
  • Quickly turn shop-floor manufacturing data into actionable intelligence
  • Support Six Sigma and the DMAIC process
  • Retain data integrity and reproduce advanced analysis at any time
  • Export data to a variety of industry standard tools

Experiment, visualize & reveal

To continuously improve manufacturing operations, management must gain visibility into plant-floor operations, measure quality performance, and quickly transform that knowledge into actionable intelligence. WinSPC and the Custom Web Reporter™ module address these critical issues by enabling teams to efficiently create and publish rich, graphical reports. From a basic shop-floor level process report to highly customized web-based enterprise reports, WinSPC offers out-of-the box and custom capabilities to support your need to quickly share manufacturing intelligence across the enterprise.

Direct benefits:

  • Transform plant data into manufacturing intelligence
  • Comply with regulatory requirements
  • Achieve higher customer satisfaction
  • Communicate manufacturing quality metrics across the enterprise
  • Retain data integrity and reproduce advanced analysis at any time
  • Save hundreds of hours by scheduling automated analysis
