2002 SPC Software Guide
Welcome to Quality Digest's
2002 SPC Software Guide. If you're in the market for statistical
process control software, you've picked up the right magazine.
Not only have we compiled the following directory of more
than 125 companies that develop and distribute SPC software,
but we've also featured the informative article "Selecting
SPC Software With Confidence," which can be found on
page 27. In the article, author Steve Wise explains various
matters regarding SPC software, such as shop floor acceptance,
configurability and flexibility, compliance and validation,
and other issues to think about when choosing a solution.
If you've already read the article and are interested
in purchasing an SPC software package, this directory is
your next step. The following guide is a list of companies
that responded to our requests for information about their
SPC products. It includes the company name, address, phone
and fax numbers, Web address, and a brief company description
(not all companies provided us with a description).
Many of these companies have also provided additional
information about their products, which can be accessed
The online directory allows you to search companies by their
SPC software's specifications (e.g., Pareto charts, attribute
charts, reliability functions, simulation, regression, ANOVA
and others). We strongly urge you to contact these companies
to learn more about the products they offer.
As with all Quality Digest guides, the companies listed
in the 2002 SPC Software Directory have neither been evaluated
nor endorsed by Quality Digest. Nevertheless, if you're
looking for such a solution, this directory is a good place
We appreciate any feedback you might have on our directories.

next year, e-mail Directories.
