Statistical Process Control

Statistical Process Control

The design of this three-day seminar focuses on the quality professional with minimal, moderate or extensive exposure to Statistical Process Control. This course reviews and explains process variation and builds the participants knowledge of special and common cause sources of variation. The participant will learn or review the basics and develop new skills or build on their current knowledge, expanding their skills and use of the application and interpretation of SPC charts.

The participant will learn from lecture, discussion and exercise the nature of process variation. In addition, the appearance of variation in both histograms and SPC charts. This allows the members to understand the application of SPC for process control, part approval as well as for problem solving, activities.

The unique explanation of chart interpretation gives the students insight into the relationship of the plotted points on a SPC chart to the changes in process variation. This relationship of plotted points on the charts to the changes in the appearance of the process histogram allows for an in-depth understanding of the “appearance” of Special-Cause-Variation.

This material may also be adjusted as a ½ day Management Overview. Insightful information to top and mid-level managers.

Enhancing Managers Understanding of the:

1) Resource needs, (people, information, time)

2) Timing, (when is the best time to implement SPC)

3) Use, and (how does SPC become “Value-Added”)

4) Benefits, (what is the “Return-on-Investment”)
