You are using XSpect Solutions OpenDMIS and the features are not being collected correctly by QC-CALC. Certain features are not being collected and others have the wrong Actuals or Nominals.

This was found to be an unintended issue in the way OpenDMIS was creating files. Specifically, each field in a sequence (nominal, actual, upper tol, etc) has a column label identifying it. This is because fields in OpenDMIS output files can be moved or swapped.

In some older versions of OpenDMIS, the column labels were missing which caused QC-CALC to not know which column was the nominal, actual, etc.

This has been fixed as of OpenDMIS 2.65. If you do not have this version and you are under a software maintenance agreement, please upgrade your version to 2.65.

In QC-CALC, we have also made changes to our driver to auto-adjust to possible column shifting and swapping. Make sure you update to at least version 3.0.276. QC-CALC 3.2 is also valid.

The following is the code needed to create SPC measurement files in OpenDMIS. This will create a .mea file which is intended for SPC software.

DID(foo) = DEVICE/INCR,'C:\Program Files\OpenDMIS\Output\bar????.mea'
