AT SIGMA SPC
Process Control Software
New Features (Complete specs here)
- Data Entry Module
- Calculated fields on
Data Entry Screens.
- Individuals data
points plotted on any control chart
- Spec limits plotted
on any control chart
- Added moving average,
moving individual control chart types.
- Added median chart.
- Can fix control chart
centerline to target value.
- Sample size maximum
has been increased to 400 for fixed and variable
sample size charts.
- Data Entry can now
collect up to 35 variables via a scrolling entry
form. Database thresholds are still unlimited.
- Data Entry now
includes support for pick list fields where an
operator is presented with a set of choices for a
field and the field is filled with the selection.
This reduces errors in entry. (e.g Scratch and
scratched are not grouped together)
- Data Entry improved
to allow a GroupID automatic
incrementing field. This inserts a unique number
for each sample sub-group so the grouping in the
database can be easily seen. Especially good for
variable sample sizes or when data is added or
removed at later dates.
- Added the ability to
collect by part or by characteristic. That is
collecting all measurements for each part or
measuring the same data on each part then going
to the next dimension.
- Data Entry: allows a
Redo function that allows an operator to start
the group over from scratch
- Added new Process
Instruction file format. Operator Help files can
now be in HTML. We include our own internal
viewer to limit ability to jump to the links in
the file. You can also use an external browser of
your choice. This eases maintenance since many
HTML editors are available including all current
versions of Word processors (use Save
- Query By Example
simplifies setting up queries for control charts
in the Product Filter. The result of the query
can be viewed at that time to verify the query
and the selected data.
- Simplified setup
includes a Setup Wizard that creates all tables.
- Simplified Data Entry
transition. You can now open straight to Data
Entry instead of the status grid.
- Ability to ignore
subgroups then re-calculate the control limits.
- Improved Auto-Scaling
when refreshing data.
- Email (MAPI) improved
to include Cause, Action, Comment and other
details in the automatic message.
- Security improved to
three levels (from two). Changed passwords are
encrypted into setup file.
- Support for Group
- Management Summary
Sub-System: shows current color-coded state of
each collection operation on the network. Red,
yellow, or green indicators. Includes checking
for inactive collection. If the operation is
overdue for new data color turns to
inactive, and an Email can be
generated automatically. Includes information
about the last (current) point and indication of
R&R: standard Gage R&R calculation
in a dynamically configured spreadsheet look.
Collects from serial gages or manually into grid.
Up to 20 parts, 20 measurements, 20 operators.
Results stored to a database for advanced
searching and queries.
- New database support
for MS Access in 32 version (95 or 97). Uses
Microsoft DAO to optimize connection to data. (16
bit still connect to Access via ODBC). Reads
queries from inside the Access database for
- Collection from
serial devices now supports TIR (total indicator
reading) function. This allows continuous monitor
of the gage and calculates Minimum and Maximum
values, which are both available for storage.
