Understand SPC Fundamentals Webinar

Manufacturers are consistently challenged to prevent problems and to control their production processes. Statistical Process Control helps manufacturers identify changes in a process that signal a problem brewing, even though those changes might still be within spec limits. Through real-time visual charts and automated alerts, Operation and Production personnel can identify what caused the variation, correct the problem, and prevent the production of unacceptable products. 

In this 60-minute webinar, you will learn the basic concepts needed to get SPC up and running in your facility, including:

  • Brief background on SPC + industry use cases 
  • Where to start using Process Capability Analysis 
  • How to use variation to avoid out-of-spec occurrences
  • What Control Charts are best suited for your needs
  • Why every company’s definition of quality and control/stability is different; and how to define yours
