Implementing SPC in Manufacturing Reduces Complexity

How Implementing SPC in Manufacturing Can Help

Complexity lurks in many corners of the manufacturing plant:

  • Manual data collection processes that complicate later analysis (e.g., handwritten data that might be difficult to read, paper reports that can become lost or damaged)
  • Lack of analytic capabilities that make attempts at quality analysis time-consuming and complicated
  • Inconsistent processes that make it difficult to plan for quality improvements
  • The introduction of additional or different steps across shifts, lines, employees, or sites

Using modern statistical process control for quality improvement helps to combat complexity by providing a means to understand and strategize around expected, standard variations in process quality.

Use Enact to Reduce Complexity

Many SPC quality systems promise to help improve processes—but then require extensive effort or additional expenses to integrate with existing infrastructure. Not so with Enact®, a cloud-based quality solution that is easy to try, use, and buy. Enact doesn’t require changes to your existing infrastructure, or the purchase of additional “modules” to achieve full functionality.

Enact can help your operations and quality improvement teams ramp up and start using SPC quickly, with intuitive UIs and extensive self-help. Not only does this reduce stress and slow-downs on the line, but your IT resources are also freed up for other tasks.

Enact uses process models and part recipes to provide a clear visualization of your manufacturing processes. With SPC that works like you do, you simplify the data collection process and reduce the burden on operators. Plus, this type of visual mode creates a reference that enables input from multiple sources and helps to clarify and streamline communication.

With Enact, you don’t need to jump through multiple hoops to see the “big picture” of manufacturing quality data. Customizable dashboards help cut down on complexity by showing you what you need, when you need it.
