FAIRFAX, Va. – InfinityQS International, Inc., the global authority on real-time quality and Manufacturing Intelligence, today announces its new whitepaper, “A Practical Guide to Selecting the Right Control Chart.” A key tool for quality control, control charts figure prominently in lean manufacturing and Six Sigma efforts. This whitepaper, written by InfinityQS’ statistical experts, leads quality practitioners through a simple decision tree to select the best possible control chart for improving manufacturing processes and product quality. The whitepaper is available for download at http://infinityqs.com/controlchartwhitepaper/PR.

Highlights include:

-The components of a control chart and basic considerations for determining the appropriate chart for a given situation

-Using sample size to determine the core chart type and the three core variables charts

-Special processing options, including group charts, target charts, and combined charts

Steve Wise, vice president statistical methods, InfinityQS, said, “With hundreds of types of control charts available today, not every manufacturer may be using the chart best-suited for its processes. This can result in ‘false positives,’ and prevent quality professionals from gaining news insights into process improvements. We hope that our whitepaper will serve as a guide for helping quality practitioners not only choose a control chart, but also get the most out of their quality software investment.”

InfinityQS ProFicient Manufacturing Intelligence platform, powered by a robust, centralized SPC analytical software engine, offers more than 300 types of control charts, including those described in this guide. ProFicient allows users to easily configure and display a wide variety of data visualizations that enable global manufacturers to proactively monitor, analyze and report on Manufacturing Intelligence to improve quality, decrease costs and make smarter business decisions.
