Statistical Process Control Template for TIBCO Spotfire® using TIBCO® Data Science - Workbench
This TIBCO Spotfire template is designed to enable user to build wide range of quality control charts with possibility do define charts specifications interactively according to user's needs. This comprehensive template is constructed based on Statistica data function and utilizing wide range of parameter settings already implemented in TIBCO Data Science - Statistica. It is an example of no-code data function.

Basic building block of this template is quality control chart. A control chart is used to monitor process variable over time. The objective is monitoring if the process is in control or out of control. This helps to ensure that the process operates efficiently, producing more specification-conforming products with less waste. It can be applied in different fields like manufacturing, marketing, sales, healthcare, etc.
This template provides various quality control charts and other tools and tests relevant for process control: you can construct charts for monitoring mean as well as variance, you can create charts for individuals or X-bar charts. Here is the list of charts: X type charts for individuals, X-bar, EWMA, Moving average, Cusum, R/S charts, histograms. User can choose parameters for central lines, control, warning as well as specification limits.
Points outside of specifications are not the only way how to find not typical or not random behavior of the process. Other tool implemented also in this template are Runs Tests which are identifying set of consecutive points which are not behaving randomly (e.g. 6 consecutive points has increasing or decreasing trend). All Rules Tests can be interactively defined inside the dashboard.
Additional capabilities implemented are using Brushing (recalculating charts with excluded samples) and assigning of causes, actions and comments.
