SPC Operator

SPC Operator is designed to provide your operators the information and tools to make decisions that improve product quality. Data collection and analysis are delivered where your products are actually produced. The user interface is especially designed for easy entry in challenging environments, including a mouse-less option. Control Charts, Histograms, and Pareto Charts are all available for the operators to review the current process and look for problems in your process before they result in bad parts.

Product configurations that take advantage of our automated data collection methods, eliminating the need for manual measurement entry, can also be initiated and monitored from SPC Operator.

Product Details

Product Description:

SPC Operator is an SPC Series module, designed for the data collection and process monitoring functions. Specifically designed for ease of use by operators on the factory floor, SPC Operator provides the following functionality:

Data Set Collection Control

Operators initiate, collect and disable data sets. Operators can see all active sets for their data collection locations, color coded to indicate the last subgroup's performance against the selected statistical tests.

Data Entry

An easy to use interface guides the operator through the required data entry for each product characteristic, including traceability topics, in accordance with the Product Configuration configured in SPC Administrator. High/Low ranges and control charts are displayed to provide immediate feedback to the operator of results, and assignable causes can be required at the time of data entry for subgroups that fail the selected statistical tests.

Charts and Reports

Operators can display Control Charts, Histograms, Pareto Charts, individually or selected combinations. Operators can also run reports to review more detailed information about the current data set.
