> quality>Statistical Process Control (SPC)


This course is designed to provide participants with an understanding of the principles of Statistical Process Control (SPC) and the tools and techniques. SPC does not refer to a particular technique, algorithm or procedure

SPC is an optimisation philosophy concerned with continuous process improvement, using a collection of (statistical) tools for data and process analysis making inferences about process behavior. SPC is a key component of Total Quality initiatives and ultimately SPC seeks to maximise profit by improving product quality, improving productivity, streamlining process, reducing wastage and reducing variation.

SPC is considered one of the core tools of IATF 16949:2016, and is generally required to be used within the Product Realisation process and it is also a key element of the Control step within Six Sigma.

Duration: 1 Day, 09:00 – 16:00
