Using SQCpack 2000 to
answer everyone's questions?
One person's data is another person's question. What do you do when
everyone wants something different from the data? SQCpack 2000 can
respond to everyone. Patiently.
If, for example, a company uses Pareto charts to track defects in order to
discover the greatest sources for these defects, these charts will
communicate the required information visually by creating Pareto charts from
entered data. In order to understand the issue more fully, however, someone
might ask whether the defect rate is increasing or decreasing over time.
Another asks for the data as percent-of-output rather than in raw numbers.
And someone else may not need to know the defect percentage, but wants
instead to know what the yield is.
While SQCpack 2000 may not be all things to all people, it will
respond to all of these needs effortlessly, providing a variety of charts
that give visual information based on the same set of data. It is helpful if
a user anticipates the demands that will be made on SQCpack for chart
representation, and enters the necessary characteristic to generate that
chart. In this case, what is required is that the user enter a
characteristic for units produced (for percent of defects) and a computed
characteristic that uses the two columns to calculate a yield (total defects
divided by the total production times 100).
Watch for new features like chart annotation, CUSUM, and new statistical
chart titles in the next release of SQCpack 2000, in beta test stage
