Defense and Aerospace Manufacturer Automates SPC for Real-Time Production Data Analysis
Chantilly, VA - March 8, 2006 - InfinityQS® International, the leading provider of statistical process control (SPC) software, today announced that the InfinityQS SPC Quality Suite solution has been selected by Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN), a recognized global leader in defense, government and commercial electronics, business and special mission aircraft. Quality Suite allows businesses to monitor, control and improve the quality of their manufacturing operations, providing continuous returns on the initial investment as it reduces scrap and rework.
