World-class manufacturers use NWA Quality Analyst Web Server to coordinate, standardize, and speed process reporting throughout the plant, enterprise, and supply chain. With NWA Quality Analyst Web Server, you can instantly distribute your most current SPC charts to anyone, anywhere with a Web browser. The information you send can be defined to meet your customer or supplier's requirements, eliminating the need for them to search through thick reports to find the information relevant to them.

This ability to produce up-to-the-minute, standardized SPC reporting worldwide through a universal analytical tool bridges the gap between remote locations and enables faster, more informed and consistent decision-making.

Complete SPC capabilities
Built on NWA Quality Analyst
NWA Quality Analyst Web Server gives you all the power, flexibility, and ease of use of NWA Quality Analyst. Now, you have the added benefits of the web. Yet you control access, content, and security.
ODBC-based database connectivity
Quality Analyst Web Server takes advantage of NWA Quality Analyst's powerful ability to link directly with corporate databases. You can view your SPC charts with current data, even real-time, at remote sites.
A tighter link to your supply chain
NWA Quality Analyst Web Server is the perfect way to tie your suppliers more closely to your quality procedures and requirements. By tapping into SPC data on their shipments, they can view your analysis in the format you prefer. You can also send your customers just the information they want, rather than making them search through detailed reports.
Tiered viewing for different audiences
To suit the needs of different users in your organization, Quality Analyst Web Server provides two ways of viewing quality data. Casual users who want quick snapshots of SPC data simply view charts with a Web browser. This view shows static SPC charts with eye-popping clarity, color, and detail.
More sophisticated users requiring additional information will want to use NWA Graphics Viewer, which lets them:
- Investigate chart data by drilling down to greater levels of detail
- Accumulate several charts and format them in multi-chart layouts
- Copy charts for inclusion elsewhere
- Change the appearance of the charts
You control who sees what and how-the level of detail, the data to be displayed, and the method of viewing.
NWA Quality Analyst Web Server provides exception reports displayed as web pages. The reports list product specification and SPC violations organized by Data Set and Variable. The relevant SPC chart for each set of exceptions is created with the click of a button.
Customized exception reports may be developed using XSLT, and users can “subscribe” to specific exceptions with RSS.
Easy-to-use, standard Web-based technology
NWA Quality Analyst Web Server uses standard Web technology, so it fits neatly and easily into your existing IT infrastructure and is easy to support.
