Statistical Process Control

This course will instruct the participants in process improvement and variation reduction using Statistical Process Control (SPC). SPC identifies special causes of variation and other non-normal processing conditions so the operator can bring the process under statistical control and reduce variation. The course will instruct the attendees become familiar with the purpose and role of SPC and the application of variable and attribute charts, calculation of control limits, process capability, Cp, Cpk, Pp, Ppk, and special statistical applications in the everyday working environment.
