SPC Control Chart Tools for Android Studio

Version 2.4

Add variable control charts (X-Bar R, X-Bar Sigma, Individual Range, Median Range, Levey-Jennings, EWMA, MA, MAMR, MAMS and CuSum charts), attribute control charts (p-, np-, c-, u-, and DPMO charts), frequency histograms, and Pareto charts to Android/Java based applications and applets using the SPC Control Chart Tools for Android.

X-Bar R Chart with integrated table support, frequency histograms, scroll bar and customize plot objects

The QCSPCChart SPC Control Chart Tools for Android software is an object oriented, Android based toolkit aimed at developers who want to add static and dynamic quality control charts to their Android applications. Typical users are SPC engineers and other quality control professionals creating .Android- based applications that will be used to monitor critical quality factors in manufacturing, process, and service industries. The feature rich toolkit includes templates for the most common SPC control chart types: variable control charts (X-Bar R, X-Bar Sigma, Individual Range, Median Range, Levey-Jennings, EWMA, MA, MAMR, MAMS and CuSum charts), attribute control charts (p-, np-, c-, u-, and DPMO-charts), frequency histograms, probability charts and Pareto diagrams. The software will automatically calculate SPC control limits using historical data for the supported variable control chart and attribute control chart types. Alarms can be generated for standard +3 sigma control limits, or standard SPC rule sets (WECO, Nelson, Juran, Hughes, Gitlow, AAIG, Westgard and Duncan). Alarms can be color highlighted in the SPC charts and table. It will also calculate process capability ratios (Cp, Cpl, Cpu, Cpk and Cpm) and process performance indices (Pp, Ppl, Ppu and Ppk). Users are able to interact with charts: adding annotations, defining custom tool-tips and editing notes. There is no comparable product for Android available at any price.

QCSPCChart for Android Studio (2.4)

The standard Android programming IDE for it first seven or eight years was Eclipse. In our first version of QCSPCChart for Android, we supplied all of the libraries in Eclipse compatible jar formats, and used the Eclipse project structure for making the libraries, and the example programs. The Eclipse version of the software is still available using the model number AND-SPC2-DEVR. In 2014, Google has changed course, and now considers Android Studio the official IDE for writing and deploying Android applications. They have since discontinued support for Eclipse. Therefore we now offer this version of the software, where the libraries are made using Android Studio and all of the example projects are in Android Studio format, and use a newer UI system based on Android fragments. The library distribution format has been changed from jar-based, to the Android aar file format. Similar to the jar and zip format, aar is basically a zip file with a designated list of items describing Android specific contents. The aar library file format is easier to integrate into Android Studio based applications than the older jar format. This version has added the Levey-Jennings with Westgard rules chart for laboratory QC users.

  • Variable SPC Control Limits – Control limits can either be fixed, and can vary with time. Variable control limits can be specified manually, or calculated automatically as the result of control charts which use a subgroup variable sample size.
  •  Western Electric (WECO), Nelson, Juran, Hughes, Gitlow, AAIG, Westgard and Duncan Rules – The software will automatically calculate and process the alarm limits for the Western Electric Runtime Rules (WE 1, 2, 3 and 4), and Supplemental (Trending) rules (WE 5, 6, 7, and 8). It will also process Nelson, Juran, Hughes, Gitlow, AAIG, Westgard and Duncan rule sets. Rule parameters (N of M exceed +-2 sigma for example) for any of the standard rule sets can be customized. Mix and match rules from different rule sets to create you own custom rule set. You can also define custom rules using our standardized rule templates. Details about the rules sets can be found here.

  • Auto-Scaling – The y-axes of the SPC charts can be auto-scaled to display all data and control limits, or the minimum and maximum value of the y-axis can be explicitly set.
  • Control Limit Alarm Events – Alarm events can be triggered whenever a process variable exceeds an SPC control limit.
  • New Alarm Features – There is a new status line in the table section that gives a direct indication of whether or not the corresponding process variable is in, or out of, alarm. The status line has a tooltip, so if you click on an alarm, a pop-up box will show you details. Optionally, the entire column associated with a sample interval can be color highlighted to indicate an alarm condition. Alarm details can be automatically logged to the notes log. The symbol used to plot a process variable point in the primary and secondary charts can be made to change color in the event of an alarm.
  • Data logging – SPC data values can be logged to disk in the CSV (comma separated value) format, for import into spreadsheets and other programs.
  • Image Rendering – The SPC Charts, including the integrated tables, can be output as a JPG file.
  • Documentation and Demo/Example Programs – The software includes a comprehensive 300 page user manual with many programming examples, and example programs for every chart type.

Custom Programming Services

  • SPC Control Chart Tools for Android Studio is an extremely powerful and flexible software package. It contains over 1000 methods and properties in more than 120 classes. The user manual and help file documentation are more than 1500 pages. This can be overwhelming to the average programmer who wants to start programming today and have the prototype of an application working in a week.
  • The variety of user interfaces for charting applications is as diverse as the industries using the software. The end-user of an application at a drug company expects to interact with the chart in a manner different than that of an end-user in the automotive industry.
  • We know that your application may be similar to, but still uniquely different from any of our example programs. To that end we offer our programming services to write for you a custom example program that demonstrates how to code the chart format and user interface you want. That jump start to your project can save you many weeks of work and make you look like a chart programming genius. All you have to be able to do is describe in detail what you want the example to do.
