Once you have retrieved your data via a STATISTICA Enterprise Data Configuration, you can analyze that data using any of the statistical or data mining tools available in STATISTICA. You can then save your analysis in an Analysis Configuration object.
Users can re-run the Analysis Configuration with a single click. And when they do so, the associated Data Configuration will automatically re-query the data. So your analysis output will include the most recent data. This makes it very easy to re-run a given analysis (no matter how complex) to include up-to-the-minute data.
STATISTICA Enterprise is set up to make it easy to generate the standard quality control charts. These are sometimes referred to as AT&T control charts, or Shewhart charts, because they were developed by an AT&T engineer named Walter Shewhart. These charts are also sometimes known as the Western Electric charts. That’s because Western Electric was owned by AT&T in those days. But all those names refer to the same charts.
Here is an example of one of the most common quality control charts, called an XBar & R chart:
This chart plots sample averages, and calculates control limits. The control limits are displayed as red dashed lines. Any points beyond the control limits are deemed to be “out of control”. Such out-of-control points indicate that something has gone wrong with the process being measured.
But you are not limited to control charts. You can also use STATISTICA Enterprise to analyze your data with any of the statistical or data mining techniques available in STATISTICA.
And that is quite a powerful feature. STATISTICA has a large number of analytical tools that include all the most popular statistical and data mining techniques. So, with STATISTICA Enterprise, you can automate even the most complex analyses.
As a result, it is faster and easier to analyze your data. So you can analyze more data, more often. That vastly increases the how much you can learn from your data.
