DataPage SPC Software
The days when using SPC was optional, when it was something that might be worth investigating someday are long gone. Today, any company that wants to be competitive knows that SPC is the most useful processes control tool available. The all new DataPage+ program has been completely re-engineered from the ground up, taking the best features of DataPage and Dataview and rolling them into a completely new user interface, with a non-proprietary database and completely customizable monitoring and reporting tools.
Measurement data is often scattered throughout a manufacturing plant and gathered using a variety of devices such as CMMs, laser trackers, articulating arms, vision systems, theodolites, calipers, height gages, and so on. Results are created in differing formats, and often remain in isolation, stuck with the device. DataPage+ allows you collect all your measurement data from any EMS suite program such as PC-DMIS CMM, PC-DMIS Vision, and PC-DMIS Portable, plus import data in a variety of other formats and automatically build a Microsoft SQL Express* database with the results. With all data in a single location, large volumes of information gathered from various devices can be incorporated into a centralized depository. The DataPage+ software user can easily migrate and manage data, perform correlation studies, and customize output formats to satisfy many manufacturing applications. Since the SQL database is a standard format, data can be imported and exported from other programs and sources with access to the database, opening up a wealth of options for customization.
DataPage+ offers a variety of options for "Dashboard" viewing of data in real-time. Custom polling intervals for incoming data can be set, allowing monitoring of important processes on a real-time basis. Individual features of interest can be monitored on the "feature monitor" screen, showing shop floor operators at a glance if processes are running within control limits. Multiple types of charts, histograms and graphs can be organized for real-time viewing and monitoring, with drill-down capabilities for individual data points.
The unique capabilities of DataView have been significantly expanded in DataPage+. A CAD file** of the part can be imported into DataPage+, and viewed "live" inside the program, or incorporated into a report output. Visualization of features of interest along with live data means it's easier than ever to visually associate the measurement data directly back to features on the part being made.
