Here’s some of the enhancements and fixes you helped inspire:

More power over the data collection process is now in your hands

New capabilities in SP 8.4.1 enhance the recently released Inspection Editor and PC Collect modules. These modules provide a visual design environment that makes it easy for you to build customized data collection and inspection processes. Now, we’ve made it easier to design them to fit your unique needs.

PC Collect can now be integrated with other systems, devices, and files. You can now better optimize the actions and behavior of the inspection. Putting these capabilities in your hands lowers the cost of ownership and creates greater efficiency and accuracy in the inspection creation and data collection process.

These new capabilities are implemented with Python, a widely taught and easy to use scripting language. Using this common scripting language, you can now optimize your own collection scenarios. You can also tap in to Hertzler’s library of device, file, and data systems integration techniques. Hertzler’s technical staff is also available to support customization efforts.

Now you can draw a Pareto chart from an SPC data table

This Pareto chart gives you a comprehensive view of how individual SPC data tale records are distributed among various traceabilities and corrective action categories. Then, you can drill down on the Pareto chart bars to uncover the root causes of variation in your process.

Use Regular Expressions in part number searches

Now you can use regular expressions  to make part number searches more specific and powerful.

Run an inspection from the Inspection Editor

Now you can run an inspection from the GainSeeker Inspections module where inspections are designed. This is useful for testing how an inspection will perform in run mode. You no longer need to switch between the PC Collect and GainSeeker Inspections modules.
