Quick Automatic Signal Evaluation

To ensure quality, it’s important to keep processes within acceptable control limits. This is done by identifying out-of-control variations as soon as possible without human intervention.

Every time a sample is taken, the Ignition SPC Module evaluates out-of-control conditions and automatically alerts you if they are present. With Ignition SPC, find out-of-control variations quickly and resolve them before they become a bigger problem.

Out-of-Control Alerting

The system alerts you automatically whenever an out-of-control condition or bogus sample data has been detected. Alerts are easy to customize so you can have Ignition SPC send out an email or SMS notification, flash a screen indicator, stop production, or do a number of other alert methods.

Control Limits

The Ignition SPC Module has typical built-in control limit calculations. These typical control limits can be modified or added to simply by editing, copying or creating new ones.


To get you up to speed faster, the SPC Module is provided with standard signals. But when the production environment calls for something more, you can edit, copy or create your own signals.
