So, I’m torn over whether to buy Sepasoft for OEE, track and Trace and SPC functionality or just write the required functionality for my project. I’ve done most of the Sepasoft online courses and quite like their approach. In no particular order:
My requirements are probably about 10% of the the functionality of the various Sepasoft.
I could absolutely write the required functionality but:
a) Limited end-user configuration after the fact.
b) Limited conformance to any standards.
d) Not an expert in this area but I can eventually figure it out.
e) Not sure on the financial advantage.
f) May be significant time investment.
I could buy Sepasoft but:
a) Tied to vendor forever.
b) Dependant on vendor for bug fixes.
c) Dependant on vendor support.
d) Tied to vendor functionality.
e) Support fees.
f) Versioning issues.
g) Initial costs are relatively high for a couple of machines.
h) Have to figure out vendor database for any custom work and see (f).
What say those who have used Sepasoft and those that have spun up their own implementations?
Thanks in advance!
