There were many challenges including combining data from multiple databases, the lack of ability to easily connect to multiple data sources and present the data in one window, difficulty correlating and filtering data, and lack of intuitive tools for analysis.

dataPARC’s PARCview quickly showed its capabilities. Stability was improved in several key customer quality requirements. Internal process monitoring tasks were simplified with the aid of PARCview’s grade-based “Run Browser” and “Centerlining” tools, along with the “Golden Run” concept.
