Largest Non-Affiliated Lighting Supplier in North America Deploys WinSPC Software to Assure the Highest Customer Satisfaction and Value in Its Market
SOUTHFIELD, Mich., September 18, 2008– DataNet Quality Systems (DataNet), developers of WinSPC® and QualTrend® quality control software, announced today that a leading automotive lighting manufacturer will deploy WinSPC software throughout its North American manufacturing operations.
The company chose to implement WinSPC Quality Control software as part of a continuous improvement effort to drive preventative quality control measures. Engineers plan to reduce product variation by gaining real-time visibility into quality data. Specific project requirements include:
- Automatically generate on-screen alerts and emails for non-conformances
- Ability to track data by date code and time
- Real-time charts
- Easily generate capability reports
- Perform gauge R&R
- Create and print summary reports
The company intends to initially perform 20 different quality tests on its lamp and lamp housing dimensions. Using the Blueprint interface, it will embed a digital image of its products directly in WinSPC, giving operators a visual guide through the inspection and data collection process.
The system previously used by the company to manage manufacturing data was found to be difficult to administer and make changes to. In addition, it didn’t support the locking down of user security or meet change control and other traceability requirements.
The company selected WinSPC for its ease of use and ability to produce fast, real-time capability reports. It plans to roll out the solution using Microsoft Terminal Services, enabling IT resources to quickly and easily administer and maintain the software.
