SOUTHFIELD, Mich. –August 21, 2000— DataNet Quality Systems, a real-time SPC software developer, announced today that it will demonstrate QualTrend, a new Web-based quality and production data sharing solution, at the ISA Expo 2000 in Booth 5201. QualTrend supports data mining, advanced statistical analysis, custom report generation and Web publishing. QualTrend enables employees, suppliers and strategic partners to access production and quality data, reports or analytical functions at any time over the Internet — plant-wide, enterprise-wide or worldwide.
“This innovative product benefits quality managers and information technology executives by linking quality information into the corporate information mainstream,’ said William M. Harral, president of quality consultants Arch Associates. “QualTrend factors very well into strategies for informed, rapid-response, enterprise-wide business management.”
QualTrend empowers quality managers and process engineers with decision support information by: combining and correlating data from multiple databases, supporting detailed ad-hoc queries and data mining, providing advanced analysis and correlation studies, scheduling automatic report generation and distribution, and embedding reports as objects into report generators.
Quality and production managers can easily provide operational summaries with QualTrend, complete with centralized reporting. QualTrend enables Web-based information distribution to internal and external customers, allowing managers to view pre-defined reports or request specific information from any plant anywhere in the world. A dashboard-style display facilitates quick status updates.
The worldwide, Web-enabled nature of QualTrend lets product managers and engineers trace complete product life-cycle information from anywhere in the enterprise. QualTrend also helps IT managers minimize resource requirements by using the Web for centralized configuration, administration, maintenance and support.
