We have an internally developed SPC application which is used in a number of our factories. Management would like to buy an off the shelf application to reduce support requirements, however most applications we've reviewed lack functions and features we need. Our custom application automatically scrapes data from our databases, handles manual data input and provides web based SPC charts. The application records user acknowledgement provides some OOC decision prompting or workflow. Included in this application includes a module which will send automatically send emails and pop messages on a watch console. If you have any alternatives which we should evaluate, I would like to hear about them.
