Synergy 3000 Adds Speed and Accessibility

Zontec, Inc., the international developer of Statistical Process Control (SPC) software solutions, has announced an update to its application, Synergy 3000.

Upgrades to the Synergy 3000 application include enhancements that add speed and accessibility to real-time data collection, charting, monitoring, analysis, communication and reporting.

"This update is representative of our approach to our entire SynergySPC suite. We lead the way with most innovative software and then continue to improve our product on a consistent schedule," said Warren Ha, President of Zontec.

In addition to this new Synergy 3000 v5.0 version, Zontec is also updating its internet-based Synergy 3000 Web Operator and Web Manager software. Both modules include added features and enhancements that improve speed, allow remote data collection and make charting and reporting from suppliers' facilities worldwide more real-time than ever before.

"Supplier quality is among the most critical challenges today. The enhancements improve on the unique capabilities Synergy 3000 has to provide manufacturers an immediate and comprehensive view of SPC data from their global supply chain," said a company spokesperson. Manufacturers have instant access to quality data about all their facilities and suppliers regardless of location, all on the device of their choice.

"Synergy 3000 allows even large organizations with complex, global supply chains to evolve from `inspect and reject' tactics to proactive `predict and prevent' strategies," said Ha.

Some enhancements include:

  • Calculating and reporting availability, performance efficiency (PE), rate of quality product (ROQP) and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE)
  • Enhanced toolbar graphics within the program
  • Key Performance Indicator (KPI) dashboard to assess, track and analyze factors contributing to production efficiency
  • Automatic email alert for operator inactivity based upon a defined time interval
  • On-screen numeric keypad option for data input
  • Export to PDF option for Certificate of Analysis Report
  • Drop down menu added to easily switch from one characteristic to another
  • Out of Specification alert displayed if any observation value in sample is out of spec
  • User will be notified to modify measurement values that fall outside defined gate range
  • Access Pareto chart for attribute Data Tables with Pareto categories defined.

"In 2006, Zontec pioneered with world's first SPC data collection program for the web. Like its predecessors, this new version of Synergy 3000 allows any process participant anywhere in the world to monitor the process, exchange information with others, focus on continuous improvement and make sound business decisions based on instantaneous production information," said the spokesperson.
