All You Need to Know on Statistical Process Control – Understanding Aspects of Variation & Accuracy

Statistical process control (SPC) does for discrete manufacturing operations what automatic process control does for chemical process operations. In SPC, a control chart tells production personnel when to adjust the process, and when to leave it alone.

Join expert speaker William A. Levinson in this session to understand the fundamentals of statistical process control and how it can help prevent process variation and ensure quality in discrete manufacturing operations. William will introduce you to control charts that display how variation and accuracy can affect the quality of the manufacturing operations. You will be able to understand the concept of the control chart along with the implications of the rational subgroup.

You will also receive a control chart simulator that uses gun targets side by side with histograms, and control charts to illustrate the effects of variation and accuracy on quality, and also the behavior of the charts. (It works in Windows 7; it might not be usable on Apple systems.)

Plus, get a link to a Visual Basic program (installable on Windows 7 systems) that teaches the concepts of variation and accuracy, along with their effects on control chart behavior. (A free copy will be provided to all attendees, licensed for use on one computer).

At the end of this session, you will understand statistical process control in detail and everything else related to this method.

Session Highlights:

  • Fundamental principles behind statistical process control, including variation and accuracy.
  • Difference between random variation and assignable or special causes
  • Know how variation and accuracy affect quality.
  • Know how control charts reflect undesirable changes in variation and the process mean.
  • Understand the concept of the control chart as a statistical hypothesis test.
  • Understand the implications of the rational subgroup; a sample that reflects all sources of variation in the process.
  • Know the implications of processes that do not follow a normal distribution.
  • Off the shelf software (e.g. Minitab or StatGraphics) for handling complex variation and accuracy.
  • Understand why your control charts don’t seem to work properly—For Ex. Excessive false alarms; points outside both control limits.
