Cincinnati, OH -- Version 3.0 for Zontec's Synergy 3000(TM) Statistical Process Control (SPC) Software is now shipping. The software release incorporates a number of new features to help users work more efficiently with production data as they strive for quality improvement and cost containment.
Synergy 3000 is designed for companies who need to implement a consistent global quality management strategy across multiple manufacturing locations and their supply chain partners. The software features a Microsoft SQL ServerŪ database engine.
Among the new software features in Version 3.0 are:
Creation of SPC Data Banks and Data Tables at the same time
A tree view of Data Bank/Data Table relationships with access functionality
Three additional calculator functions: short run, net weight and custom formula
Streamlined Pareto data entry window
Support for Crystal ReportsŪ

Enhanced "Auto Data Export" command

Performance options for spreadsheet display
The Synergy 3000 system consists of a comprehensive series of real-time SPC software applications that run on both Windows networks and Web browsers. The dual-platform architecture allows companies to customize the way they allocate the system among users.
For the Windows environment, there are four program levels characterized by the functional roles and responsibilities for each type of user:
The Operator Level for data collection, charting and corrective action
The Engineer Level for developing sampling plans and analyzing data
The Manager Level for enterprise-wide process monitoring and reporting
The Administrator Level for database management, security and password maintenance
The optional Synergy 3000 Web applications extend data access and SPC functionality via an internet connection and any standard Web browser. They enable the manufacturer to enforce uniform quality procedures among their entire supplier community and give mobile employees the ability to log in to the database from remote locations. Two Synergy 3000 Web applications are available:
The Web Operator for on-line data entry, charting, corrective action, document retrieval and e-mail and text message notification for process violations
The Web Manager for on-line process monitoring and report generation
In addition to workstation and laptop PC connectivity, the Synergy 3000 Web applications are fully compatible with the Apple iPhone(TM) 3G.
The Synergy 3000 system is rounded out by the Multi-function Toolbox, a plug-and-play data integration program that interfaces with a variety of multi-vendor hardware platforms and manufacturing systems such as ERP, MES, LIMS, SCADA, PLCs, CMMs, OPC Servers and legacy data.
Zontec became one of the first companies to offer SPC software for personal computers more than 25 years ago. Since then, its technology has been adopted by more than 5,000 companies spanning virtually every industrial category.
