Statistical Process Control (SPC) & Basic 7 QC Tools - IMTMA/Q002

Programme Background

Variation in any manufacturing process is inevitable but needs to be controlled. If external or assignable causes of variations are excluded, the natural causes are restricted to a combination of variations due to machines, tools, methods, materials and people who work at the workplace. Statistical Process Control (SPC) is a technique to enable measurement and analysis of the variations at the workplace and try and control the same at optimum levels. While SPC techniques involve extensive use of various types of control charts, an understanding of all the basic seven quality tools helps in a better understanding and implementation of SPC as well as Problem solving.
