(Statistical Tracking and Analysis
A Turn-Key solution for tracking the manufacturing process
system was designed and developed by Corporate Data Design Inc. as a
real-time, turn-key solution to monitor products as they move through
the manufacturing process. The system is designed as a ‘batch’ record
analysis system which records each piece as it moves through each
process. Any data entry method may be used (key-entry, existing
hand-held, voice, scanners ...) or CDD can provide customized touch
screen data entry software.
The application is easily customizable for any manufacturing
supports up to 20 different languages.
By recording the product’s ‘attributes’ at each process, the
product analyst, black belt, plant manager, supervisor or employee can
monitor the product’s status relative to each process. Each attribute
is considered a ‘criteria’ item in the S.T.A.R.™ system. Examples of
criteria items are: the time/date the product was produced or
inspected, the color, product #, model #, defect information etc. This
data is stored either locally (in a PC based database) or, for larger
record counts, in a back-end database server. Any combination of
criteria items may be selected when performing drill-down analysis.
(The sample screens below are based on a fictitious
automobile company and are for demonstration purposes only.)
S.T.A.R. Watcher module (below) allows user to set threshold levels
for various processes. Once threshold is reach, automatic emails and
paging occur to selected individuals.
|The application supports a
minimum of 40 attributes (criteria items) for 20 different production
S.T.A.R.™ has been designed to work with the backend-database of
Microsoft’s Jet™ Database engine or Microsoft SQL Server 7.0™. The
database is a fully normalized, relational database with a full
referential integrity design. It can analysis 100,000’s of records in
seconds across multiple attributes. Any other ODBC compliant SQL
backend database may also be used.
Production Control Analysis (P.C.A.)
The PCA application is the analysis tool used to evaluate collected
information. It provides various real-time pareto charts, trend
analysis and drill down capability. It has been designed to give the
user the ability to look at any process over any time with any
combination of selected criteria items.
Pareto Analysis (**NEW!-
'Top Value' Selection and %'s Against Criteria Subsets):
Pareto Analysis Charting Allows Any Attribute Vs
Any Other Attribute
|Touch Screen Data Entry
In a manufacturing environment, other methods of data entry may be
required besides key-data entry. Using the
application allows the operator/inspector to enter data while navigating
through various touch screens. Each screen will ask specific questions
about a product’s attributes. The data is transmitted to the back-end
database and then immediately available for analysis. See
for more information.

If a user
wishes to further analyze data outside the features of S.T.A.R.™, they
can easily view, sort and run criteria's on the data,
then copy to another Windows™ compliant application.
system allows substantial user flexibility. All reference information is
available to the administrative user through various data entry screens.
Users may add/modify "any" acceptable attribute item. User may specify
rules to limit what users may enter as valid data thus providing strong
data integrity. In addition, administrative users may view and edit the
