SQCpack 4.8 release enhances charting, communicating
The latest version of SQCpack, the recognized workhorse for SPC
analysis, offers increased charting flexibility, plus improved ability
to share charts with others via e-mail. The program is in beta-testing
and will be released to production in early 2005.
Among the newest features in the release are short run SPC charts,
scatter diagrams, multi-line charts, and 21 CFR 11.1 features. All
charts may now be sent as e-mail, saved as web pages, and customized
extensively. Some new options include three-dimensional bars, expanded
out-of-control testing, improved choices for displaying data above
control charts, showing values near data points, information about data
within 1,2, and 3 sigma, and more control of extra lines presented on
the chart. New e-mail and web page features will enhance communication
about data and offer opportunities for further analysis and discussion
of their significance in the quality improvement effort.
With respect to 21 CFR 11.1 compliance, the latest release offers
improved user/password management, database passwords, and audit trails
(with reporting capability).
"Our customers’ charting requirements have become increasingly
sophisticated as they plumb the depths of data analysis. SQCpack has
always led the way, and the newest features offer another demonstration
of product leadership in meeting SPC needs," says development manager
Training sessions to enhance understanding of the full power of this
release have been scheduled for early 2005.
