Benefits of the ProFicient Software Solution

Powered by a centralized SPC engine, ProFicient enables improved quality from the factory floor and across the enterprise. Use the solution on-premises to improve quality data collection and analysis, as well as real-time monitoring, long-term strategic decision-making, and easy, effective reporting.
 
Simplified Data Collection and Access
Get a grip on quality data

Manufacturing floor interfaces and universal data collectors support manual, automated, semi-automated, and mobile quality data acquisition. Quality data is centralized in a unified data repository that provides fast and easy access for analysis and reporting. The statistical engine processes and manages data from an unlimited number of sources and provides reliable access control. ProFicient enables access to a variety of databases, sites, and suppliers.
Flexible Monitoring and Analysis
Identify potential problems and best practices

ProFicient supports real-time monitoring for immediate identification of quality problems. Visibility into unified data also enables a long-term view that can help to uncover variances before they become problems, as well as identify strengths and best practices that can then be applied to other processes, lines, and sites. Control charts and dashboards are automatically updated in real time for optimized operations and reporting.
Workflow Management
Help ensure the right actions at the right time

Regulatory and business obligations require a standardized approach. ProFicient enables simplified data collection and automatic warnings and notifications to alert operators of issues. Statistical rule violations can trigger escalated data collections or other actions. Manufacturers can require operation inputs or comments for better data management.
Advanced Reporting
Help lower costs and increase profits

Use ProFicient’s dashboard view of KPIs and metrics to identify areas of waste, hidden costs, and opportunities for improvement. Span lines, sites, and suppliers through easy-to-customize reports and multilevel data mining.

Gain Greater Visibility

ProFicient SPC software gives visibility to all stakeholders

Data Collection and integration
provide the critical link between shop floor and executive suite

ProFicient offers a fully customizable, intuitive, and highly visual data collection interface tailored to the needs of plant floor operators and technicians. Users of ProFicient can choose manual data collection, semi-automatic data collection, or fully automated data collection. Our suite of data connectors and data-exchange processes enable the collection and integration of quality and process data from virtually any data-collection point or system, including various plant databases, from corporate sites, suppliers, and more—regardless of geographic location. Mobile workers can even collect data using their favorite mobile device.
VISUALIZE QUALITY DATA
SPC Control Charts provide visibility into manufacturing processes

Monitoring and analysis help identify and resolve
quality problems in real time


ProFicient, the leader in manufacturing software solutions, provides the ability to produce charts, dashboards, and reports that immediately update when data is collected. Take advantage of a wide variety of reports and statistical analyses and more than 300 types of control charts to support long- and short-run applications and displays for both attributes and variables data.

The InfinityQS Quality Event Dashboard and Control Chart Dashboard provide highly graphical, interactive data displays ideal for managers and decision makers so, at a glance, they can gain an understanding of current manufacturing performance.
 
Operator entered Assignable Cause Codes (ACCS) and Corrective Action Codes (CACs) can be aggregated and presented in multi-level charts so problems can be quickly identified and prioritized.
 
If quality falls outside of configured parameters, ProFicient can generate process events, save them to the Unified Data Repository, and notify anyone you choose, wherever they are.
ENSURE DATA COLLECTION

Dynamic Scheduler ensures timely data collections

Manage workflow to optimize operations

Operators are busy, so InfinityQS offers Dynamic Scheduler to provide operators with a timed checklist for scheduled quality checks. The system automatically reminds operators when regular data collections are due. If a statistical rule is violated or data falls outside of the defined specification limits automated emails or text messages (SMS) can be sent to supervisors and quality personnel.
 
When process issues arise, ProFicient's Dynamic Scheduler can dynamically alter data collection schedules to ensure that the right data is available when needed to troubleshoot a process efficiently.
 
The system can also automatically trigger responses from third-party machine controllers, user-specified files, or applications.
LEVERAGE PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Advanced reporting delivers quality intelligence to continuously improve performance

With just a few clicks, users can design and customize multiple charts, graphs, or reports for specific Quality Management needs or for other parts of the organization. Robust analytical tools enable users to slice and dice quality data across many dimensions, including line, product, geographic region, supplier, and more. ProFicient InSight is a dynamic, web-based portal that works with the ProFicient platform to deliver a dashboard view of key performance indicators and quality metrics (including OEE) to any location. You can access the information through any browser—whether on a computer, smartphone, or tablet.
