This course teaches participants the fundamental concepts and methods needed to establish effective control charts and estimate process capability. In addition to learning traditional control charts (e.g. xbar, r/s), participants will be exposed to other useful charts for handling multiple sources of variation (within/between) and short production runs. Practical aspects of implementing SPC on the shop floor are also discussed.
Estimating process capability for both normal and non-normal data is discussed. The meaning and limitations of popular capability are presented in detail.
This highly interactive course will allow participants the opportunity to practice applying SPC techniques with various data sets. The objective is to provide participants with the key tools and knowledge to be able to apply the methods effectively for their own processes.
