Nascote Industries has applied SPC at its Nashville, Illinois plant since the late 1980s to monitor, control, evaluate, and analyze many of the manufacturing processes. As new SPC packages have been developed, Nascote implemented several as the use of SPC increased throughout the plant. However, these different SPC packages created islands of information and caused confusion among users when trying to locate specific data. Nascote determined that with a centralized database, a user-friendly Windows interface, and the ability to import data from other applications, consolidation of all of these islands of information would be possible. Consolidation would be cost effective since Nascote already had over 95% of the plant’s PCS and touch screens connected to the plant’s PC- LAN. To accomplish this task, Nascote purchased an SPC software package, Zontec SPC, in mid-1995 to help Nascote standardize most of the SPC charts and data.
Using the Zontec software, the data on Nascote’s production process became easily obtainable throughout the plant. Data being tracked with the Zontec SPC software included molding gage data, bonding gage data, reactive induction molding data, quality data, and paint data (including paint temperatures, paint viscosities, yields and contamination data).
