About WinSPC

WinSPC is a statistical process control (SPC) management solution which enables manufacturers to monitor and optimize production processes in the pursuit of reducing costs, and to improve the quality of products. This real-time SPC software enables users to capture data on quality measurements, process parameters, attribute checks, and traceability details from sources such as scales, gauges, coordinate measuring machines (CMM), OPC servers, network devices, external databases, business systems and most intelligent devices.

WinSPC helps users monitor processes, and generate summaries of events, statistics, customer, supplier or plant performance from a unified portal. It provides real-time control charts, feedback, and automated actions in response to changes in your production. This enables teams to automate or quickly act on unwanted changes to initiate remediation or required notifications. Tools like the one-click variable analyzer or patented cost inspector help users visualize data and gain insights into processes, product information, production capability, and the true cost of variability.

WinSPC primarily caters to quality teams, statisticians, plant managers, process engineers and other executives in the transportation, defense, consumer goods, construction materials, food and beverage, medical devices, pharmaceutical, plastics and packaging, and electronics industries.

The software provides significant capability prebuilt for most applications. But for the times when you want something that looks custom without the cost, it also provides an extensive API, an open database, both visual report builder, and visual dashboard creation interfaces to allow teams to build out solutions which match their current operating paradigm or needs without needing to understand the underlying fully validated SPC technology.

It also has granular permissions and extensive audit trail integration for compliance in challenging regulated industries where all application change must be documented.

The solutions are backed by an experienced product specific technical team that prides itself on exceptional customer service with nearly any task or customer need within scope of consideration. The goal of these solutions is to improve cusomer production performance, if that requires something special to be done to acheive that then there is an experienced team member available to talk about it and if at all possible act on it.

Has to be the best SPC system.

We have been using WinSPC for over 10 years. The software gets better and better. Their support has historically been available during working hours only, but you can arrange after hours for upgrades or major planned events.

Sales is easy to deal with. Support is very good to deal with. Their training staff are very knowledable.

Pros

End user for a major automotive parts supplier (Magna):

From an end user perspective, the software is very easy to use. It is a simple interface that you can configure to meet whatever needs you have, whether manual entry via keyboard, direct entery from a Mitutoyo style gauge, or automatically fed from a plc as data is collected and presented.

As an IT Administrator, this is by far the best software to maintain. They have taken the time to put functions into the softwawre that makes life much easier with upgrades, etc.

And, as the Quality Engineer, if you can browse folders in windows, use a mouse and do basic functions in a computer, you can run WinSPC. Very familiar methods of managing data. The canned reports are good enough, but you can make your own easily enough

Cons

It can be costly to get going, but once you use it sufficiently you can understand the cost.

Because of WinSPC we are now able to have Production Team Members print our their own capability reports, plus understand them what the data is telling them. Before we had to rely on Engineers and Supervisors.

I saved the best for last.........their Support Line is the bench mark for other corporations to follow. How many times do you call for Support and go through recording after recording and minutes later finally get through to an individual just to find out you have to re-tell them everything you told the recording and then its a 50-50 chance they can help. NOT with WinSPC Support, you call, you talk live to a Service Tech. These individuals are friendly and all have the capability to solve your concerns. Customer Service at its best.

Pros

Its flexible enough to fit your company's, its powerful enough to handle large or small inspections, capable of performing manual or automatic inspections just tailor it for your needs.

Cons

Ability to change sub-group size from report features.

Pros

The customer service is great, very knowledgeable, friendly, and responsive. The plant monitor feature is nice. The charts look fine, not cheesy at all.

Cons

It's very hard to use, especially the administration side. The data entry is painful, the database connections are confusing, historical charts are difficult to view, data mining is very time consuming.

Management staff enjoys the reporting capabilities and dashboards. It helps to prioritize projects where there is low capability in a way we were not able to do before. WinSPC is changing the way we manufacture and do business, and has been a very positive rollout with operators, management, and engineering.

Pros

Ease of implementation was key when we chose to purchase WinSPC. We have worked with several other SPC softwares which were challenging to implement and use. There was minimal upfront work compared to other softwares, and the long term data is much more easily queried. The data storage is very powerful and easy to extract from. WinSPC has excellent technical support and has been able to help us through both frontend and backend issues.

Cons

The biggest flaw is that there is no easy way to have inspection frequency built in to the database. There are several other quirks, but that is the one that we needed to develop custom work instructions for.

WINSCP makes the daily workload a lot more manageable as it simplifies many tasks related to file retrieval editing, and uploads.

Pros

WINSCP allows for simple file transfer on a linux file system. I am able to easily edit multiple types of files such as .sql, .txt, .lis, and batch file types.

Cons

On occasion file uploads will contain windows characters which could affect the file's performance (i.e. ^M characters in an sql file). It would be helpful if there could be a warning of some type so that those files could be further reviewed.
