the CAD from Verisurf, and the PDF fi le from a process com- pany, and then we balloon the drawing with 3D tolerances or prints,” Cope said. “It could be a TIF fi le or any major CAD format, and we combine all that into our solution.”


Leveraging SPC Data Taking manufacturing data to the cloud, offering global access to supply-chain data, is a big trend in SPC software today, said Shaun Wissner, marketing communications specialist for PC-DMIS and DataPage+ SPC software, Hexagon Manufacturing


Point-cloud 3D scanning metrology tools in Hexagon’s PC-DMIS software allow faster, more accurate scanning and create detailed, annotated 3D color maps of parts.


Intelligence (North Kingstown, RI). “Another is automatically linking environmental data to root-cause analysis, like if the temperature of the lab goes out of spec, the software will automatically fl ag the inspection report.” For manufacturers looking to maximize their investments in SPC software solutions, Wissner noted that “the best way is fortunately the most obvious, just mine the data. Many times we see manufacturers collecting and then simply passing on data as a customer requirement with no further inquiry, almost a go/no-go strategy. If, however, there were process thresholds and key identifi ers determined for a particular production run, SPC could be used to cut sample rates and use more effi cient inspection methods to decrease inspection backlog.” In Hexagon’s latest DataPage+ SPC software, the WebRe- porter includes all of the software’s previous reporting tools that are now available in a standard Web interface accessible from anywhere, Wissner said. “Automatic report delivery and mobile notifi cations are real time and money savers for a lot of our customers. Generally though, SPC is all about the num- bers so ensuring we are keeping up with the standards, and making the data easier to consume for the end user, are our key technical motivators.”


Automotive users widely deploy solutions like the Quick SPC software from Marposs Corp. (Auburn Hills, MI) for improving processes and to comply with quality-control
