SPC Office Buddy (v.3.4.53)
The SPC Office Buddy is a revolutionary new application that integrates directly with Minitab, JMP, and MS Excel to run reports using CMM data collected by QC-CALC Real-Time. This direct integration virtually ends manual data entry once and for all. The Buddy allows you to set up custom filters to reduce your data before sending. When finished, you can run statistical reports or Sixpacks on any subset of your data and then place these charts into your Excel reports in the location of your choice. The Buddy automatically sends each feature’s label, nominal, tolerance, and subgroup information straight to Prolink Charting, Minitab, or JMP without typing, saving you time and money.
How It Works
The Buddy displays your collected measurement data as a grid of numbers that you filter by both rows (records) and columns (dimensions). The Buddy can then run either Prolink Charts or Minitab charts with the click of a button. This saves an enormous amount of time since all nominal and tolerance data is automatically sent to the chart. The data and charts can then be automatically placed into the custom Excel report of your choice in the exact location you specified.
**If using Prolink Charts, you also have the ability to place statistical calculations directly into your custom Excel reports.
