Part 1: Setting Up for Capturing Data (about 10 min)See how easy it is to set up WinSPC to capture product or process data. Create test variables for a product and experience a real-time SPC alarm.
In this interactive video, you'll set up WinSPC to capture data for a manufacturing process. Specifically, you'll create an example product inside WinSPC, and a critical product characteristic to be measured. Then you'll prepare a collection plan—essentially an inspection procedure that specifies which characteristics you're interested in and how they'll be measured and tested.
Version 8 Part 2: Capturing Data Manually and Responding to Alarms (about 8 min)Enter product measurements as an operator or quality technician would, and experience a real-time alarm triggered by one of those measurements, indicating a problem on the production line.
In this interactive video, from the perspective of a shop floor operator, you'll capture measurements into WinSPC using the example product, characteristic, and collection plan you set up in the first video. You'll also specify the product’s lot number and the machine that produced it so that you can quickly filter production data later. Then you'll encounter an alarm as the process strays out of control, and enter the corrective action you choose to take.
Version 8 Part 3: Capturing Data from External Sources (about 8 min)Experience WinSPC's ability to capture quality data from your metrology instruments and production equipment.
In this interactive video, you'll set up WinSPC to capture measurements from an external source. Then you'll capture measurements from that source on a live data collection chart. You'll get a quick summary of the myriad of gauges, metrology equipment, files, and business systems with which WinSPC can communicate and acquire production data -- with or without human interaction.
Version 8 Part 4: Setting Up SPC Tests and Triggers (about 9 min)See how to configure SPC tests and how to define what happens when these tests are violated during production.
In this interactive video, you'll apply two SPC tests to an example product characteristic and choose the actions WinSPC will trigger when those tests are violated during production. You'll explore the variety of actions WinSPC can initiate when a problem occurs on the factory floor, including requesting action from an operator, alerting a supervisor, and illuminating a light tower.
Version 8 Part 5: Monitoring a Manufacturing Plant (about 8 min)Experience how WinSPC’s Plant Monitor enables you to monitor production across your entire facility.
In this interactive video, you'll see how to monitor a production facility using WinSPC. You'll manage SPC rule violations across a plant and solve a production problem using WinSPC's real-time Plant Monitor.
Version 8 Part 6: How to Prioritize, Investigate and Solve Problems with the help of WinSPC's Analysis Features (about 8 min)See how WinSPC's analysis features help you improve production efficiency.
In this interactive video, you'll first pinpoint a problematic process. Then you'll identify a major cause of its underperformance and quantify what you can save if you eliminate that cause. Finally, you'll fix the problem, thereby boosting the process' capability and earning you a financial savings.
Version 8 Part 7: Searching and Exploring Your Process Data (about 6 min)See how you can use WinSPC's data set builder to do advanced searches of your production data that answer important quality-related questions, such as, "Where has capability declined this month, compared to last?"
In this video, you'll be introduced to a WinSPC data. Then you'll see how you can quickly answer your quality-related questions using WinSPC's pre-built data sets. Finally, you'll get an introduction to creating your own custom data sets.
Version 8 Part 8: Uncovering Hidden Manufacturing Costs (about 6 min)Discover a new way to calculate your process' manufacturing costs and quantify how much of those costs could be saved by improving the process.
In this video, you'll be introduced to the Cost Inspector, a patent-pending analysis tool in WinSPC. You'll see how to prioritize process improvements using a cost-savings analysis, how to identify your optimal process set point in terms of cost, and how to calculate what you could save by reducing variation.
