Sunnyvale, CA – SigmaQuest Inc. has released SigmaQuest Process Flow Visualization (PFV) software. The software is said to allow users to track all phases of product development graphical views of data. Because the software is interactive, users can determine if their process flows are performing as intended and get to the root cause of any potential product-quality issues, product recalls or other issues that could result in dissatisfied end customers.
PFV presents information in the form of graphical charts that have drill-down analytic capabilities. With this approach, military and aerospace, computing, consumer electronics, medical devices, and other product manufacturers can tell if the documented process flow is followed and when and where their supply chain process isn’t working. Also, they can determine if products have been built to spec, gone through all appropriate tests, if tests were skipped, if products failed in the test process (and if so where), and how many times tests were repeated, and they get yield indicators at each stage of product development.
The software is able to interpret data directly from the manufacturers’ and/or suppliers’ test floor and points out the flows in the manufacturing process that warrant further inspection or refinement. The software also identifies faulty test stations and unusual operator actions to in turn identity potentially defective or aberrant end products.
PFV is available as an add-on module to the SigmaQuest Manufacturing & Test Insight product. It is slated to be available as a bundle with other SigmaQuest SigmaSure offerings in 2009.
