Unparalleled Collaboration

Since the SPC Module is built on Ignition, it can seamlessly collaborate with the full range of other Ignition MES applications. A production process fully employing Ignition MES offerings can collect quality information as well as track OEE (overall equipment effectiveness) and downtime, recipe management, preventative maintenance, traceability and more, all on one unified system.

Having a unified system reduces double entry and generates more raw data which can be analyzed and used to generate reports.

Data collected from Ignition and its modules can easily be shared and analyzed. This awesome collaborative power makes it easy to analyze relational data, giving you the power to cross reference data, identify trends, look for correlations and more.

Break down the walls between the lab and the plant floor by transforming raw data into useful, actionable information with the Ignition SPC Module.
