5 Reasons You Need an SPC System

5 Reasons You Need an SPC System

 

SPC has traditionally been a tool of the large manufacturers, but with new technology, it is now available for smaller suppliers on the Cloud

 

SPC - Statistical Process Control - is not new. It has been used for decades to analyze parts and processes in manufacturing and make adjustments to reduce waste and defects. What is new are two things: the range of automation and software that supports SPC, and the ability to use it farther and farther down the supply chain. The tools are no longer massive systems that need hundreds of thousands of dollars and large teams to maintain, but Cloud based systems that can be set up quickly and used effectively, and affordably, by just a few users. 

This access to SPC promises cost savings at every level of the supply chain, and at many levels that have traditionally simply dealt with quality problems as a matter of doing business. 

With access to SPC available, why would you want to adopt an SPC system?

Here are five reasons why adopting an SPC system is a good idea:

Knowing which vendor to work with to implement SPC is a difficult choice

Larger enterprises are beginning to deploy Statistical Process Control (SPC) software solutions independent of their investments in Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), Enterprise Quality Management Software (EQMS) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems.

The Quality Show -- What Were Attendees Quality Issues Blocking SPC Adoption?

 

Attendees at The Quality Show Wanted to Adopt SPC But Often Had Concerns

Statistical Process Control and Quality Monitoring promise cost savings, product improvement, and other benefits, but often overlook the barriers to adoption

[For those wondering: What is Statistical Process Control, SPC?]

SPC sounds amazing, especially from the vendors that provide it (we're guilty too). It promises all kinds of benefits:

  1. Cost savings
  2. Time savings
  3. Rapid problem solving
  4. Powerful root cause analysis
  5. Clear communication with suppliers and organization
  6. Standardized reporting 
  7. Real-time quality monitoring
