  • Finding the stats number in DataPage+

    We recently updated our CMM software from PCDMIS 3.2 to 2012, including DataPage+. On our old DataPage, we were able to select the part data based on what we numbered it in the PCDMIS prompt to upload to DataPage(stats number). In the new version of DataPage+, the only indicator for the part data is the time that is was uploaded, despite PCDMIS still asking you to serialize the part prior to execution. So, my question to you is, is there a way to view that stats number?

    Sounds like you didn't put a tracefield or an input comment in the PcDims program. Do that and you will be all set.

      Ah, you are saying that this is one of the 'enhancements' to the new datapage? The automatically incrementing stat count frmo Pcdmis no longer shows up in datapage? nice. So, instead of the 'new and improved' being 'new and improved', it now requires MORE programmer input as well as more operator input when running to get the same thing we had before. double nice.

        Thats the Plus part of it Matt. I had to upgrade to get the Data view part of the software.

          I just LOVE how for every step "forward" they take two steps back. Do you still have to use special coding just to get it to send the data (as when it came out) or have they fixed that?

            You have to put in an external comand line to run a .exe file to send the stats. It runs in the background during program execution.

              That is just SO FLUCKING stupid. (15 years ago) "Hey, we have this all-in-one inspection/stat package, they work hand-in-hand, all ya gotta do is put in this ONE command in your program (with just 2 mouce clicks!) and it will automatically increment your sample number AND save the data so you can make a nice stat report." then now, when everyone needs to lean out their processses "Oh, hey, we're all about making it BETTER and we listen to the users, so here's a new Datapage (which, by the way, you will have to pay for a training class to learn how to use it since it is nothing at all like what you've had in the past and we don't give you anything for the SMA money you've been giving us for 15 years but we changed nothing during that time) and oh, by the way, it doesn't do any of the automatic stuff it did before, now you have to do all this other crap just to get back to where it was before we made it "better" for you."

              Yep, they sure got their priorities straight.

                  How many hours have all of Hexagon customers have lost due to the issues with there software? What would the total cost would be for all those lost hours? Then add the total SMA cost.

                    This was all I had to do. Thank you for your help.
