Monitor and analyze data as it’s being measured on the shop floor and have instantly-updated control charts, with Cp, Cpk, Pp, and Ppk values.

A more extensive, yet still real-time, SPC toolset is available in the core High QA package including analysis of Max, Min, Mean, UCL, LCL, RBar, Cp, Cpk, CpkU, CpkL, Sigma, Pp, PpkU, PpkL, Ppk, and Average moving range (mR). This, combined with single-click X-bar and R charts (mean and range), provides users with data needed for submission packages and insights into process improvement.

High QA has alerts for SPC data


In today’s manufacturing environment, being notified after-the-fact is too late. High QA provides alerts for a multitude of parameters such as NCR’s, Out of Tolerance, Job Complete, Gage Expired, and a host of others! Too much? Combine the notifications into a report that is sent at a determined frequency. The choice is yours – we provide the tools, you provide the details!

SPC alerts keep quality control processes functioning properly with High QA software.
SPC reports and submission packages are generated with High QA manufacturing quality software
High QA has customizable and standard template reports for SPC


High QA software makes it easy to select, filter and graph data for simple and clear visualization – on your schedule. Whether you need Cpk reports daily or NCR reports weekly, with just a few clicks it’s set up and running.

Easily set up customized SPC reports once with Pp and Ppk for your boss or customer. Out-of-tolerance reports for completed jobs are easily generated with High QA software.

With High QA software, we have been able to improve our manufacturing procedures. We have an average savings of 72% on quality planning and reporting processes.

Learn More about Statistical Process Control (SPC)

What is Statistical Process Control (SPC)?

Statistical Process Control (SPC) is an industry-standard methodology for measuring and controlling quality during the manufacturing process. Quality data and process measurements are obtained in real-time during manufacturing. The data is plotted on a graph with pre-determined control limits. Control limits are determined by the capability of the process or by the client’s needs.

Data that falls within the control limits indicates that everything is operating as expected. Any variation within the control limits is likely due to a natural variation that is expected as part of the process. Data that falls outside of the control limits indicates something within the process should be changed to correct the issue before defects occur.

The importance of statistical control is to show what the process can produce over time. Statistical process control allows predictions to be made about how a process will run in the future based on how it ran in the past. This helps determine if the process can produce output to meet specifications.

What is real-time Statistical Process Control (SPC)?

Real-time SPC is the use of SPC charts and analysis during the time of production for immediate process feedback. Supply chain and manufacturing processes depend on a combination of machinery and automation technology to produce products more accurately and more efficiently. Real-time SPC software allow operations to continuously improve quality control within manufacturing processes.

Real-time SPC software can significantly enhance manufacturing quality initiatives. When manufacturing capacity increases, quality management software is needed to provide visibility into manufacturing quality throughout the supply chain to help decrease risks, part recalls and overall costs.

Real-time SPC software processes data in real time as it is collected. This provides operators with tools to prevent and catch defects before they leave the manufacturing floor. Real-time SPC software allows manufacturers to understand which processes are statistically out of control.

What is Statistical Process Control (SPC) Software?

Statistical process control (SPC) software provides an ongoing statistical analysis by collecting data in real-time and alerting the manufacturer to any results that fall outside the accepted range. This, in turn, helps reduce process variation, improves manufacturing efficiency and lowers overall production costs.

SPC software provides capabilities that monitor and analyze data in real-time to reduce variation in a production process or other system. It also helps to identify the origin of a problem and demonstrate whether or not an improvement is effective.

Using statistical methods to provide insight and accuracy into manufacturing processes allows manufacturers to keep operations running, meet customer requirements, minimize waste, maximize profits, and ensure quality.
