SPC is the tool that collects statistical data to measure and analyze quality levels at various plant production check points.  WEM provides industry standard Shewhart Control charts and historian graphs to help staff review and react to quality levels within the plant.


The X Bar chart presents the average deviation from target for each ingredient weighment made from a specific bin.  The R Chart presents the range of deviation for each ingredient weighment made from a specific bin.  

These charts offer distinct advantages over other methods of data analysis by identifying distinct determinations of process stability and process behavior.

Key Performance Indicators are high-level snapshots of performance on specific, predefined measures, providing the tool to gauge progress toward established goals.

WEM systems come with pre-defined, standard template charts.  These standard charts may be modified to meet specific, local preferences.

Users are also able to create their own specific KPI Report if a standard template is not available.  By utilizing the WEM DataManger system, users are guided through the process to help create their own specific report.

The histogram presents the distribution of the deviations, of each ingredient, as weighed from an ingredient bin. Histograms are great aids in determining the process capability and the distribution of the data being sampled.  Histograms of data are available for all batching bins.
