DataNet Quality Systems (DataNet), developers of WinSPC® and QualTrend® quality control software, announced today that it is offering a free 60-day trial of WinSPC Version 7.2.
WinSPC enables manufacturers to enhance product quality, improve process control and impact manufacturing profitability. The new features in Version 7.2, such as advanced deployment and integration capabilities, give quality executives the ability to easily incorporate continuous improvement technology throughout the manufacturing enterprise.
Users can directly download the trial version from DataNet’s homepage at winspc.com. DataNet is also offering live demonstrations, which can be requested via its website.
“The free trial is a great opportunity for quality engineers to evaluate DataNet’s SPC software and discover how they can quickly and easily incorporate preventative quality control measures into their manufacturing process,” said DataNet CEO Stephen Arnett. “WinSPC Version 7.2 offers a proven, low-cost way to increase process capability and reduce manufacturing costs.”
WinSPC software is designed to automate the SPC process and enable manufacturers to control process variation in real time, on the factory floor. Manufacturers use WinSPC to:
- Collect data from machines, devices and data sources
- Monitor processes and perform SPC in real time
- Initiate corrective actions for closed-loop quality control
- Perform advanced statistical analysis
- Create and distribute quality reports across the enterprise
- Comply with regulatory requirements, like ISO, FDA, and TS/QS
- Build traceability into manufacturing operations
- Enhance Six Sigma, Lean Six Sigma and other Continuous Improvement programs
WinSPC Version 7.2 offers significant enhancements to improve productivity and streamline SPC efforts. Already heralded for its ease-of-use, WinSPC Version 7.2 provides even more features to make it the preferred SPC software for manufacturers in the Transportation, Food & Beverage, Life Science, Computer, Computer-Related, Electronics,Semiconductor and Consumer Goods industries.
Benefits and features of Version 7.2 include:
Deploy WinSPC faster, reduce implementation costs, and optimize enterprise resources
New deployment options in WinSPC Version 7.2 allow companies to reduce implementation time, resource requirements, and the total cost of solution ownership. WinSPC provides out-of-the-box support for Microsoft® Terminal Services®, giving IT professionals a way to centrally deploy, manage and administer WinSPC across the enterprise.
Improve visualization, predict issues, and prevent problems
WinSPC Version 7.2 boasts new capabilities that allow engineers to overlay charts and compare multiple variable statistics from a single screen. This empowers engineers with the right information at the right time—allowing them to make immediate, data-driven process improvement decisions.
Easily manage thousands of parts, reduce rote administrative tasks, and improve productivity
New administrative features in WinSPC Version 7.2 allow administrators to minimize routine set-up and maintenance tasks. For example, a user can select and apply a common set of properties to a large group of tags or characteristics within a WinSPC collection plan. This provides significant value to administrators who manage thousands of parts and specifications in WinSPC.
Improve integration with other manufacturing systems
Version 7.2’s newly added properties and methods to WinSPC’s Application Programming Interface (API) further improve the software’s ability to integrate with other manufacturing systems. WinSPC’s open architecture supports advanced integration by making the majority of its functionality available programmatically. This allows companies to easily automate and integrate WinSPC with other core manufacturing systems to improve product quality, process capability, operational performance, and manufacturing yield.
