Powerful Data Analysis and SPC

Using SPC (Statistical Process Control) tools and trend analysis FSWorks allows you to monitor, analyze, and take corrective actions to keep manufacturing processes in control, thus preventing scrap and improving productivity.

SPC Tools

FSWorks has hundreds of built in SPC related metrics and computation methods that have been developed over 40 years of use.  Individual statistical values including standard deviation, mean, Cp, Cpk, and many more alert operators and supervisors to potential problems so they can be corrected before evolving into critical situations.

OEE Tools

FSWorks provides OEE to be computed locally with built-in availability, performance and quality formulas that determine OEE and drives informational displays such as uptime, downtime, average cycle time, efficiency, effectiveness, and total part count. Statistical charts include Xbar, R, Pareto, Sigma and Histogram for both variable and attribute analysis.  Process descriptors such as mean, standard deviation, Cp, Cpk and dozens of others are available to monitor and diagnose processes.

Spec Editor & Document Storage

FSWorks Spec Editor allows the administrator to create and maintain variable and attribute quality control plans on the factory floor so there will never be any uncontrolled documents when conducing ISO quality audits. Users can also define and edit process events, automatic trend alarms, and reference work instructions locally.

Data Export

Local data can be transferred to a centralized FS.Net repository or exported as .csv or Excel files.  Custom charts and reports can be printed locally.

Alarms & Notifications

FSWorks has hierarchal alarm functions allowing operators to react immediately to critical situations.  Stack lights, buzzers, music can be activated locally.  Escalation of alerts to supervisor and manager level can be programmed based on time and criticality of the event.

Immediate & Historical Data Visibility

FSWorks lets you watch your process performance in real time providing operators with instantaneous feedback to take necessary corrective actions.  Historical charting helps you optimize process control and efficiency.

SPC Displays

FSWorks displays real time values and statistical process metrics such as mean, standard deviation, Cp, Cpk.  Charting shows the performance of a process over time and identifies the natural limits of a process and the impact of any changes on the process.

OEE Displays

FSWorks displays OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) at a machine, cell, line or factory level.

ANDON Displays

FSWorks can drive stack lights, ANDON boards and overhead montors via VGA, HDMI or wirelessly using our affordable FS.Monitor kiosk drivers.

FS.Net™

FS.Net™ is an enterprise level factory automation and control software suite that makes your production and quality data visible to your entire organization. FS.Net™ provides operators, supervisors, engineers and management with in depth quality analysis, process performance insights and compliance reporting locally or from anywhere in the world.  FS.Net™ provides global administration of all individual FSWorks™ workstations, control plans, work instructions, machine configurations, sensor calibration management and more. System Administration, Reports, Charts & Analytics, Tracking & Traceability, Torque Tool and Monitor are a few of the most powerful and commonly used features.

In a nutshell, FS.Net™ consolidates factory floor data from FSWorks™ and other sources and stores that data in a secure database. FS.Net™ has a powerful suite of modules that allow data to be mined, analyzed, displayed, charted and reported in almost any way imaginable from emailing custom reports to management, displaying data on overhead monitors throughout a plant to providing real-time queries by quality personnel on secure web portals.
