Six Sigma Black Belts defined requirements for a software tool to monitor SMT equipment for quality improvement opportunities. This application has a Statistical Process Control (SPC) module in which standard Western Electric rules are used according to the Shewhart method (classical rules for SPC charting published in the 1930’s) to detect and respond to out-of-control events. Standard SPC measurements are offered, in addition to user configurable parameters to measure the shop floor for experimental use.
Once accomplished, this historical data is easily parsed and analyzed with more sophisticated analysis tools. The process of knitting together these tools for greater value, typically done with e-bonding software supplied by Oracle, Microsoft and others, is also discussed in some detail.
