Statistical Process Control I - Introduction (1-day)

Instructor

Dr. Wayne A. Taylor

Course Description

Statistical Process Control (SPC) has proven itself 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 a manufacturing plant.  The focus of this 1 day course is capability studies.  The course Statistical Process Control II - Trending Data covers trending in greater detail.

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. Four detailed cases studies demonstrate the proper role of SPC and potential pitfalls to avoid.

What You Will Learn

  • How to perform capability studies
  • How to calculate and interpret capability indices such as Pp, Ppk, Cp and Cpk
  • What six sigma quality is and how it relates to capability studies
  • How construct and interpret control charts
  • How to select the best control chart for the job at hand
  • How to observe trends and patterns on a control chart and detect instabilities in the process
  • The three uses of control charts and how to determine if you are using them effectively
  • How to manage process improvement through variation reduction using SPC and Capability Studies
  • The best demonstrated practices for implementing SPC and the pitfalls
  • How to evaluate the effectiveness of a SPC implementation

Primary Audience

This course is intended for management, supervisors and engineers who want to implement SPC in their facility or organization. Previous exposure to the normal distribution and standard deviations is helpful.
