Gainseeker Version 8.4 Turns Disparate Data into Real Time Manufacturing Intelligence

Share Article

New Gainseeker software version from Hertzler Systems Inc. helps manufacturers use their data to focus better on critical issues and take proactive steps quicker.

You'll eliminate a lot of busy work, and surface issues faster so you can take corrective action sooner.

Hertzler Systems Inc. has released the latest version of its flagship GainSeeker Suite software that turns disparate manufacturing data into actionable manufacturing intelligence.

Version 8.4 contains everything manufacturers need to focus on critical issues, take proactive steps quicker, and reinforce a data-driven culture.

The GainSeeker platform contains applications for Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE), Statistical Process Control (SPC), Defect Management, and costly Overpack in a single software package.

There’s a bright, new application in version 8.4 for running PC-based inspections. PC Collect is a completely new module for PC-based inspections.

“PC Collect is easy to set up and use, and quick to learn,” said Hertzler’s CEO/President Evan J. Miller. “It gives operators immediate, clear, visual feedback that is easy to understand.
“Operators will work faster⎯and you’ll have more confidence in the data, and be able to respond faster when problems crop up.”

Inspections run using the PC Collect application can be easily created using GainSeeker’s Inspections module.

Other Version 8.4 highlights include:

  • Big Data widgets that lend a big hand to managing vast amounts of data.

“These Big Data widgets put you ahead of the response curve by delivering an automated, prioritized summary of key issues or process changes, as they occur,” said Miller.
“You can drop one or more on a GainSeeker dashboard, set a few priorities, and it sweeps through the data, delivering a color-coded list of priorities and opportunities. You’ll eliminate a lot of busy work, and surface issues faster so you can take corrective action sooner.”
Miller said the Big Data widgets come at just the right time as quality professionals become more concerned with handling the data they already have, let alone the amount of data they are capable of collecting.

  • The new Python™ scripting platform in GainSeeker enables Hertzler clients to customize their own statistics, tailor the inspection creation process, automate data generation, design their own charts, and more.

“Python in GainSeeker offers limitless opportunities for quality professionals to wrap up and display data exactly how they want it, when they want it,” said Miller.
“Python has a low customization barrier and it’s very flexible. Such flexibility will become even more necessary as greater connectivity increases the flow speed of data into the manufacturing environment.”

Python scripting and statistics libraries for use with GainSeeker are also launched in Version 8.4. “We’re only at the starting line for ways in which we expect Python to be used with GainSeeker in versions to come,” Miller said.
