Can SPC Software Help a Company to Thrive in Today’s Economy?

According to Greg Maddox, Principal at McGladrey & Pullen LLP,

“Confirming what we observed in practice, there is a strong correlation between those companies that consistently deploy process improvement and quality programs and methodologies and those that are ‘thriving and growing’. Nearly 70 percent of organizations with an advanced culture of continuous improvement are thriving compared to approximately 40 percent of companies without an emphasis on continuous improvement.”

Why is that? Because businesses that have embraced quality principals like Statistical Process Control (SPC) software into the fabric of their business are more efficiently able to reduce scrap, reduce rework, increase user productivity, more effectively manage the lifecyle of their machines, seamlessly incorporate suppliers into their business, and demonstrate to customers that they can make new products using existing equipment. In short, these businesses are able to consistently manage costs.

In today’s economy, it’s about efficiency. At Zontec, we have customers tell us how they have saved time using our software. Sound too good to be true? Here are some examples:

“Implementing the Synergy 2000 SPC software, along with a lot of hard work, has reduced our defects to our customers to zero, whether it be the Navy, the Army, the Coast Guard, the Yacht industry, and others.” — Bob Batsche, Quality Manager for Carlisle & Finch Co.

”Entering the data into Synergy 2000 SPC software is much quicker than how we collected data in the past. We are saving about 10 man-hours a day.” — Tim Stutzman, Manufacturing Systems Analyst for Oregon Freeze Dry

“The Synergy 2000 SPC software saves us about 45 minutes of the operators’ time from how we operated previously. When you calculate this across 22 machines that comes out to about 33 man-hours a day.” — Scott Chambers, Quality Facilitator for Schoeneck Containers Inc. (SCI)

“We also estimate we are saving approximately 30% of an operator’s day due to data entry…. Using Synergy 2000 SPC software we have eliminated data entry errors. We are able to measure that part completely and save 30% of our time doing it.” — Ted Black, QA Manager for the A.P. Plasman-Windsor Plant
