The 4 best tools for statistical quality control

Posted on | Posted in The Application @en

The Concrete Quality software package is composed by modules, being Quality Control the basic one. Inside Quality Control you will find the Production section, which offers the most versatile and useful tools to manage the quality of your concrete:

  1. Statistical Control: a tool as easy to use as a regular spreadsheet, but with a power and flexibility that you’ve never dreamt of: filter, sort, search and group you data in any way you imagine, at the same time that you obtain real time calculated values: average, maximum and minimum, standard deviation, etc.
  2. Pivot Grid: to see the big numbers about your quality control in a simple way. You can display your information with any perspective, using the predefined views or creating your own. Play and experiment with this tool and you’ll soon discover all its potential. You won’t believe that you’ve lived without it until now!
  3. Variation Coefficient: to evaluate the stability of your production process, Concrete Quality offers you a powerful and easy tool. The variation coefficient expresses the standard deviation as a percentage of the arithmetic average, and represents an excellent indicator of data homogeneity. Applied to a concrete type or mix design, it shows how stable its production is; the lower the variation coefficient, the more stable and better calibrated the process is.
  4. Mix Designs Results History: a graphical too to rapidly assess the evolution of the key mix design indicators: strengths at 3, 7 and 28 days, slump, air content, temperature, etc. Everything in a chart component that is easy to navigate, totally integrated with your data from the Statistical Control. You won’t miss a thing again!

Interested? The best thing about these tools is that you can use them free of charge… forever! The Quality Control module is free and you can use these tools without subscribing to any additional services.
