SQCpack by PQ Systems is an easy to use Statistical Process Control system that is suitable for most industries and any manufacturing mode. Right out of the box, users will find that it’s simple to capture and import data from multiple sources and use it to create histograms, charts, Pareto diagrams, and capability analyses. Charting is shown in real-time, and email alerts give users the opportunity to react swiftly to process signals.
Companies can define their own out-of-control tests, or choose from other options like Shewhart, Juran, AIAG, Wheeler, or CHARTrunner. Direct data entry is a great feature which allows data to be captured from gages, measurement devices, and other data collectors rather than being entered manually, and chart annotation allows users to include descriptive process information. A built-in Quality Advisor provides guidance on statistics and FAQs.
One thing that we like about SQCpack is that the intuitive interface means that users don’t need specialized training to navigate the system. Powerful techniques combined with a high level of flexibility make it exponentially easier to complete SPC analysis than with homegrown software or formulas in spreadsheets.
SQCpack is available for on-premise or cloud-based deployment. We normally recommend it to plants with more than ten employees looking for a reliable and time-tested SPC solution. PQ Systems has been providing manufacturing solutions for over three decades, and in 2014 they were named one of the Best Places to Work in Dayton, Ohio.
