    Inheritance is an administration object behavior (introduced in WinSPC 8.0) where the object not only affects other items at that object's level, but also affects other objects that are in the lower levels beneath that object. Two of the new administrative objects in WinSPC 8.0, Control Test Te ...

  7. questionHow can I create a control test to count the number of samples in a subgroup that are out of spec?
    In WinSPC 8.3.4, a new subgroup level control test type has been added that allows a user to setup a custom control test that counts the number of readings in a subgroup that meet a certain criteria (such as the number of readings outside the spec limits). Using this new subgroup level control ...

  8. questionWhat is the difference between a Subgroup Level Control Test and a Sample Level Control Test?
    Introduction WinSPC supports two different types of Control Tests: Subgroup Level Tests and Sample Level Tests. These two types of tests have different configuration options and are activated at different points in the data collection process. In short, a Subgroup always consists of one or m ...

  9. questionHow to create and configure a custom Subgroup Level Control Test to check for out of control Range values.
    While not standard SPC practice, you can check for out of control conditions for your process based on range values. This is done using a custom Subgroup Level Control Test checking against the Secondary chart. There are a number of different ways this can be done. The following is 1 potential c ...

  10. questionHow do I configure WinSPC to prompt the operator for information when a subgroup is out of control?
    A Control Test trigger can be setup to prompt the operator for information when a subgroup is out of control. When the trigger fires you can have it prompt the operator for Assignable Causes, Corrective Actions, Notes or any combination listed. Method 1 (Legacy Method) – Collection Plan ...

  11. questionHow can I see the changes or events that have occurred for a specific WinSPC item?
    WinSPC can be configured to track and record changes to objects in WinSPC, such as when items are created, modified, or deleted.
