CHARTrunner Lean retrieves data from various sources and clearly presents it for SPC charting and statistical analysis. This eliminates the need for importing, exporting, and tedious data entry. Data can be easily retrieved from any or all of the following:

  • Microsoft Access
  • SQL Server
  • Microsoft Excel
  • ODBC
  • OLE DB
  • text files

Create, analyze, and discover

Performance improvement charting has never been easier. A chart wizard walks you through the chart creation process. Once created, you can modify and customize your chart to fit your needs using live-editing capabilities right on the chart.

CHARTrunner Lean updates your charts in real time. Once you create a chart, you can save and reuse your chart or series of charts. Each time you open a chart, it automatically grabs the latest source data and updates with a fresh chart. You can also set a specific refresh interval for any chart to update with the latest data so you can make timely decisions. When browsing created charts, you can easily find the chart you need by viewing thumbnail images. Multi-charts can be displayed on one screen and arranged with a click of your mouse.

Now you can get to the discovery phase of your data faster to find out what your data reveals about your processes.
