Simple Automatic Sample Scheduling
Taking accurate, regularly-scheduled samples is vital to maintain quality. That’s why we made it easy to schedule samples automatically in real-time using the Sepasoft SPC Module.
You can take samples based on actual production conditions and use convenient, automated alerts to help ensure that samples are never missed. Customizing a sampling schedule is simple and totally flexible, empowering you to accommodate the requirements of your unique production environment.
The Sepasoft SPC Module makes it easy to ensure that samples are taken on time. A samples list shows upcoming, due and overdue samples by department or location so you can quickly see what's happening. The system can also automatically send out email and SMS notification or flash screen indicators to prompt sample taking. You even have the option of setting up the system to automatically stop production if a sample is overdue.
When samples are taken, the SPC Module can be set up to automatically approve them or hold them for approval. This feature can help you ensure that samples are approved when and how you need them to be.
You can easily create sample definitions to define attributes, control limits, signals and sampling locations. Choose attributes from variable data types such as real, integer, Boolean and many more.
Automatic Alerts for Out-of-Control Conditions
Typically, SPC software requires that someone opens a screen and visually checks for out of control conditions. Just like the scheduling of samples, someone may be distracted by other pressing production issues and fail to complete the task. The Sepasoft SPC module has powerful features that will automatically evaluate out of control signals every time new sample data is recorded. This can be expanded to instantly inform all parties that should know of various out of control conditions.
Analyze SPC Data with Control Charts
All the data in the world is of no use without good analysis tools, so we built the Sepasoft SPC Module with a full range of powerful and flexible SPC Control Charts. Based on security roles, control limit values can be calculated and set interactively on the Control Charts. The Additional Factors feature gives you the flexibility to associate and visualize other production information along with SPC data and with customizable appearance settings for charts, tables, control limits and signals, you have the power to see the information you need in the way you want. The SPC module provides the following types of Control Charts:
On all charts, it is possible to add assignable causes and notes to explain a data point. A sample note can be entered on the Lab or Test Stations page when the sample is first entered. This can be done by selecting a sample, then clicking Add Note. An attribute note is added directly from an SPC chart by right-clicking on a data point and selecting Set Note from the drop-down list. In addition to attribute notes, an assignable cause can also be added in this way. Assignable causes can also be saved for future use. Out-of-Control Signals and Control Limits can also be added to the graphs.
