SPC Software Roundup
SPC software comes in nearly
as many varieties as Baskin-Robbins ice cream. There are
programs that acquire software from measuring instruments,
programs that build charts, programs that analyze data and
programs that share SPC data across the organization.
Each year in our December issue, Quality Digest
lists companies that provide a wide variety of SPC software.
This month, we’re providing a list of companies that
provide traditional, out-of-the box SPC software (i.e.,
software that analyzes data and helps the operator interpret
the results.) We have deliberately excluded software that
merely collects data or shares data across the organization.
We have also left out software that only has SPC as one
component of a larger software product.
Quality Digest’s SPC Software Roundup features
listings from more than 50 companies. You’ll find
contact information (address, phone number, fax number and
Web address) and, if available, a description. More information
about these companies--including a detailed description
of their specific products--is available online at www.qualitydigest.com/directories.
As with all of our guides, our SPC Software Roundup is
in no way meant to endorse or exclude any organization.
Rather, it’s meant to be used as a starting point
in the data-gathering process. Readers are encouraged to
contact the companies directly for more information.
