Integration is a broad term used in quality circles to describe anything from manually merging data output from two different systems – such as a Material Requirements Planning (MRP) and Statistical Process Control (SPC) – to commanding Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC’s) from quality data input.
Continuous process improvement does not always seem like a realistic task during what already feels like overly busy days. Work days (and nights) are spent conforming to customer compliance standards, investigating customer complaints or struggling with data collection hardware and software.
So, your ProFicient SPC system is humming along - you have a number of operator data collection projects, engineering reporting projects, supervisor review projects, and everything is perfectly organized, neat, clean, and easy-to-use - exactly how you dreamt of implementing the software.
