September 10, 2014 – Hexagon Metrology announced DataPage+ 5.0 Statistical Process Control (SPC) software for Quality Assurance professionals. The new version delivers meaningful, actionable and timely feedback to the shop floor to eliminate bottlenecks, reduce waste, and streamline manufacturing processes. DataPage+ 5.0 integrates seamlessly with PC-DMIS metrology software. DataPage+ 5.0 offers a variety of reporting features including an Assembly Qualified Rate Chart, which is similar to a Qualified Rate Chart, but allows the user to break out data by variable sets. The chart displays all variables within 75% of tolerance (green), between 75% and 100% of tolerance (yellow), and out of tolerance (red). Users will also find a Measurement Deviation Chart showing deviation trends with color-coded tolerance indicators. A CII (Continuous Improvement Index) Variation Chart has been added to report deviation trends over a year-long time period, and on a monthly basis, will calculate Six Sigma of all dimensions with measured data. A NG Details Report presents the rankings of each selected dimension, sorts the data based on the highest percent out of tolerance, and highlights the Top 10 based on lowest tolerance percent. A Customized Microsoft Excel Report tool allows the user to report variables and transactions in rows and columns, or columns and rows, allowing for easier template customization. This update also enables the use of all measured values as part of an Excel file. DataPage+ 5.0 now includes a Windows Service option which keeps DataImporter running on the server as a “push” service. For example, when PC-DMIS places a part file in a specified directory, the DataImporter service automatically recognizes it and pushes the data to the database. The Windows Application option still exists for custom setups as part of legacy support. DataPage+ 5.0 also adds the ability to import data from PC-DMIS directly into a specific Part Category, allowing operators to view and import parts automatically, to streamline data input without interaction from the DataPage+ Administrator.
