Improve Productivity with SPC

How SPC Can Help

“Time is money,” the saying goes—and nowhere is it truer than in manufacturing. Ideally, you can produce as much quality product as possible in the span of any given hour—without inefficient processes siphoning off the resulting profits. Many manufacturers see quality-improvement efforts as a cost center, when in fact they can help to increase profits by improving efficiency across the board and helping to—

  • Reduce scrap and rework
  • Minimize unplanned downtime
  • Provide input or guidance for best practices
  • Improve product consistency

Use Enact to Improve Efficiency and Productivity

Enact® saves operator time by improving the efficiency of the data collection process, including the ability to pull in data from equipment that supports automated collection. Even for machines that require manual recording of data, entering that data directly into Enact is fast and easy. Plus, Enact supports the configuration of entry limits, so that any accidental typos or transpositions are easier to catch immediately.

Forget the hours and hours that many SPC systems demand when it comes to retrieving and analyzing quality data. With Enact’s Unified Data Repository, retrieving information, tracking trends, and responding to reporting, customer, or audit demands takes a fraction of the time other systems require.

Unlike other SPC systems, Enact makes it possible to compare multiple products, shifts, processes—even sites—in a single chart. No need to export data for further calculations in Excel or Minitab; with Enact, you have robust, powerful analytic capabilities all from within your SPC system.

Thanks to Enact’s support for historical and aggregated analysis, you can more easily discover the approaches that lead to optimal quality. This ability supports the development of best practices, which can improve efficiency across your organization. And with Enact, you have the means to verify that such practices are being followed to the letter, across lines, shifts, and sites.
