Course Description


Statistical Process Control (SPC) has proven itself to be an easily implemented and effective tool in minimizing and controlling process variability. The reduction of process variability is the key to quality improvement and profitability. SPC provides important tools for tracking and reducing variability. This course introduces, in an easy to understand fashion, the two basic tools of SPC, namely capability studies and control charting. It also teaches how to effectively implement SPC in both a manufacturing and service environment. The focus of this 1 day course is on evaluating process capability. The class is hands on. Several exercises involve the actual collection and analysis of data generated in class. The course is also full of practical advice on how to effectively utilize SPC. Detailed cases studies will demonstrate the proper role and use of capability studies in addition to the potential pitfalls to avoid.

  • The underlying concepts supporting SPC and process control charts
  • How to construct and interpret control charts
  • How to observe trends and patterns control charts and detect instabilities in a process
