This Enact update includes the following features:
Data Collection Reporting – Pareto Chart
A multiple-level Pareto chart that displays the distribution of data collection activities such as manual data collection, automated data collection, and checklists. Users can easily refine the analysis by inserting levels to the Pareto chart such as site, data collection type, data collection name, employee, shift, and time. The counts by data collection type are links, so users can easily view and edit the raw data that have been collected.
Benefit: A powerful, graphical way for quality managers to gain better visibility into their team's data collection activities and quality professionals to view the data collected.
Part Process Assignments
During manual data collection, this new functionality limits the part selection list to only those parts assigned to process(es) in the data collection. This is a precursory feature that will support scheduling functionality planned for the future.
Benefit: Saves operators' time when collecting data.
Process Parent Manipulation (Data Collection for Sub-Processes)
New functionality that ensures that sub-process data collection is supported in Enact (e.g., liquid filling machines with multiple filling heads). Data collected for sub-processes will be able to be analyzed individually or together at the process level.
Benefit: Enables users to collect and analyze data on a wider range of equipment, namely machines that contain sub-processes.
Complete Shifts Parameter Set Selection.
Enact will now ensure that a full shift of production data is selected, even if the shift straddles across a day boundary.
Benefit: Improves the accuracy of data analysis by ensuring that “entire shifts” of data can be selected without the limitations of time-based criteria.
