Hexagon Metrology, North Kingstown, RI, has released DataPage+ 5.0, an innovative statistical process control (SPC) software package for quality-assurance professionals. The new version delivers meaningful, actionable and timely feedback to the shop floor to eliminate bottlenecks, reduce waste and streamline manufacturing processes.
The software integrates seamlessly with PC-DMIS metrology software and offers a variety of new reporting features including an Assembly Qualified Rate Chart, similar to a Qualified Rate Chart but allowing the user to break out data by variable sets. The chart displays all variables within 75 percent of tolerance (green), between 75 and 100 percent of tolerance (yellow) and out of tolerance (red). Also new is a Measurement Deviation Chart showing deviation trends with color-coded tolerance indicators. And, a Continuous Improvement Index Variation Chart reports deviation trends over a year-long time period, and on a monthly basis will calculate Six Sigma of all dimensions with measured data.
Lastly, a new NG Details Report presents the rankings of each selected dimension, sorts the data based on the highest percent out of tolerance and highlights the Top 10 based on lowest tolerance percent. A Customized Microsoft Excel Report tool allows the user to report variables and transactions in rows and columns, or columns and rows, allowing for easier template customization. This update also enables the use of all measured values as part of an Excel file.
