Electronics Giant Selects WinSPC Software for Real-Time Control




One of the world’s largest manufacturers of passive and electronic components deploys WinSPC to reduce defects and PPM levels

The manufacturer is installing WinSPC at its stamping facility, where it is replacing an existing, off-line SPC system. Approximately 20 WinSPC stations will collect data from a variety of serial devices, including micrometers and calipers. That data will be charted in real-time to alert operators of out-of-control situations that, if undetected, could lead to defective product. With the ability to respond to process variation immediately, the shop floor expects to reduce defects and achieve aggressive PPM target levels.

DataNet’s engineering staff – known as the Solution Delivery team – is supplying custom programming services to migrate data from the legacy SPC system into WinSPC. Additionally, the Solution Delivery team is providing on-site training to 10-12 system administrators who are responsible for configuring and managing the system. The three-day training covers all the essentials for the company’s Quality team to successfully administer real-time operations, off-line analysis, and reporting on plant-wide quality metrics.

The company plans to roll out WinSPC to its injection molding and assembly stations during phase two of its Quality initiative. It reports that one of the key reasons for choosing WinSPC was its ability to quickly and easily collect data from nearly any serial device.
