SQCpack by PQ Systems is a statistical process control (SPC) system that is suitable for most industries and any manufacturing mode. SQCpack is available in on-premise or cloud-based deployment. It is best suited for plants with more than ten employees looking for an SPC solution.

Users can 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 users receive email alerts for process signals.

Companies can define their own out-of-control tests or choose from options like Shewhart, Juran, AIAG, Wheeler or CHARTrunner. Direct data entry 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.

Support is available over the phone and online.

A huge benefit for quality control.

I get a great "snapshot" view of product quality which lets me control our process more accurately.

Pros

It's user friendly and provides a great overview of product quality and process control. I have recommended this program to other divisions in our company.

Cons

Updating for new production lots is tedious and time consuming. The program uses quite a bit of memory and sometimes can slow my computer.

Great!

Pros

Cons

I honestly cannot think of any constructive cons about this software. It provides exactly what we need out of it.

Easy of use, great customer, and technical support.

Determining our troublesome product lines and working to improve the processes

Pros

What I liked the most about the software was the ease of use. Once you have the naming scheme developed you are off and running.

Cons

The charting can be cumbersome to set up. The method for which you determine your data points could be easier to define.

Fast software and fairly good graphics.

Our customer and internal personnel satisfaction.

Pros

The graphics are good and the charts print either in portrait or landscape. Exporting out as .pdf files is also a good option.

Cons

It seems to be somewhat confusing how to manipulate certain functions or how to get the software to show you what is needed.

This the tool that the company needs and use

Pros

Friendly to use, and the real story of the process is told by the use of control charts, histrograms and paretos

Cons

I don't have any complaints, I'm really have to have this tool in our company. We have 25 license of SQCP pack along the manufacturing platform

We use this program as a tracking tool for all of our machine conditions, setting and parameters.

Data storage and history, as well as data analysis/graphing.

Pros

This software serves us well to find information, when we need it. We are able to use the graphical functions well for our needs.

Cons

search functions could be a little more user friendly. Creation of new files seems overly difficult too. easier to copy and modify an existing one.

This was set up for our QC person

Pros

What I appreciate most about this software is the ability to upgrade from our ancient older version.

Cons

What I like least about this software is that it took 3 upgrade steps and phone assistance to force our system into allowing the upgrades.

It is a good package but has some quirks & limitations that can be frustrating to a non-IT person.

Ability too see trends and issues in a timely manner. Ability to provide graphical information internally and externally as needed.

Pros

Works well once set-up is done. Able to edit charts to fit needs. Able to filter charts to look at them by groups.

Cons

Time to set up charts using external data. Still having problems getting the Alerting system to work after asking for it for several years. We have over 200 charts and cannot monitor them all.

I have used SQC Pack for my 12 years in the quality department.

The software's ease of use makes training new employee's to use it very easy and saves time. We are very pleased with the software!

Pros

The ease of use is what I like most the software. I find that training new employee's to use the software goes smoothly because it's so easy to use and understand.

Cons

Throughout my time using the software, i haven't found anything i could complain about. We are considering an upgrade to version 7, and i'm hoping the transition/learning curve isn't too bad.

Great software for beginners and experts.

Create histograms for customers as well as calculate CP and CPK

Pros

For those just being introduced to SQCpack it can be quite intimidating however, over the years with revisions and updates the platform has become easier and easier to use. Which I like, especially with having to train people to use it. Another thing that is fantastic is the customer support. Any glitches/ issues that we find are always dealt with quickly in an update. Thanks PQ.

Cons

Can be a bit fussy with allocating a lot of data but still gets the job done. Support is always available to help with this.

Very good Basic SPC collection software that is easy to implement

Ease of use, easy customization, not limited to use data collection just in the quality department.

Pros

Very easy to set up and implement. Great operator interface, with lots of options for adding group or individual instructions, pictures - great for training. Really nice to have user defined fields so that there are a lot of options for customization. Nice to have options for calculated user defined fields. I was able to create an OEE charts - so it is a good product that it can be multi-functional, not just a quality too. Great customer service.

Cons

Although the Charts are good, they are just charts. We really could use some stronger tools on attribute charts and really having more flexibility on how to customize charts.

great productivity and time savings on working my process improvements.

Pros

data trends are very easy to analyze with the graphs for average and range, the capability analysis is very good to analyze my process variables, when properly installed, the programs runs very well, capturing pictures to show graphs is a cool thing too.

Challenging to learn initially but works very nicely

Pros

The ease in generating charts for my data. After using Excel to try to generate charts, I wish I had purchased sooner! The customer service is really good. I was able to get an answer to my question in just minutes.

Cons

There is a big learning curve if you've never used the software before. I was completely unfamiliar with it and felt lost in the beginning. I discovered how easy it is to get answers to questions through the chat feature!

Fantastic customer service and customer involvement in product development

Data storage and analysis

Pros

Groupings allow for the easy organization of data - while providing automation in terms of notifications of out of specification situations. The including charts and reports make using the data simple and effective.

Cons

It would be nice if there was more functionality between groups. We'd also like to see a few more options with the reports to make them more readable (grids, print options)

PQ Systems provides the best technical support I have ever experienced.

Pros

I like the fact that our data is now saved to the Cloud and not have to relying on it being on the network and able to be retrieved in an emergency. A real peace of mind.

Cons

Not happy that the Reports did not get imported with the SQC Pack upgrade and have to recreate them.

SQCPack for Healthcare QI Teaching and Applications

We use SQCPack for a wide variety of QI projects within a large Healthcare Organization, and for teaching Quality Improvement to Physicians. SQCPack does an exceptional job of handling the data, and creating the appropriate graphics with a minimum of effort. It allows for easy reporting and ongoing analysis of the data. Stratifying data, filtering it, and looking at it in many different ways is easy, and doesn't require the Physicians to be experts in manipulating spreadsheets or the intricacies of Excel. This puts the power of the data into the hands of those who understand it best. SQCPack applies the rule sets that we choose, and automatically flags the out of control points for us. The StatBoard function gives us an easy way to keep on top of a wide variety of performance measures by focusing us on only those data charts that are changing significantly. I highly recommend SQCPack for any Healthcare Quality Improvement effort.

Pros

Ease of use, Correct Statistics, wide range of Chart Types, Central SQL database, Excel, Access, SQLServer or other sources.

Cons

Security is good, but coarse grained
