Basic Statistical Process Control (SPC)


Seminar Content

This two-day seminar is designed to provide participants with an understanding of the importance of SPC in controlling and improving the production process and to give students a practical knowledge of using statistical methods in analyzing the production and service processes.

Who Should Attend

Individuals who have direct responsibility for defining and developing an Organization's measuring, monitoring and analytical practices using data collection, charts and statistical tools appropriate for its products, processes and business goals and objectives. We will look for suitable statistical tools to identify the same sources of variation in our manufacturing or services and to control that variation.

Recommended Training and/or Experience

Fundamental knowledge of computational mathematics is necessary for understanding the topics discussed.

Seminar Materials

Each participant will receive a seminar manual, including workbook and all team exercise materials.

Please bring a calculator.
