The newest version expands existing operations and performance management functionality by adding quality management for sample data collection, statistical process control and quality results monitoring. The software monitors quality data in near real time so plant operators can respond faster to non-conformance conditions, quality trends and deviations, as well as to take corrective actions that minimize variations and bring quality closer to specifications. It complements existing enterprise quality management systems with sample plan execution automation, higher accuracy in shop-floor quality sample data, integrated statistical process control (SPC) and enhanced work order and operational execution context. The software now enforces manual and automatic data collection and integrates structured sampling plans, as well as includes rigorous SPC. The updated software also allows sampling plans to be dynamically generated, according to current work-order status for products, equipment and operations. Execution of the sample plans can be done according to system quality specifications, and the samples themselves can be automated, from equipment, control systems or instrumentation. SPC trending and charting are available for near real-time quality monitoring, and include notifications of violations of control and specification limits.
