Webinar - Statistical Methods Process Control

Without statistical methods like SPC, process optimization & capability assessments, most manufacturers are missing huge opportunities to:

  • Design and develop products cost-effectively
  • Reduce waste
  • Collect data in more efficient ways– and use it wisely
  • Detect potential manufacturing issues before they blow up
  • Base decisions on facts, not hunches, via properly analyzed data

This webinar exposes the essential statistical concepts and methods that manufacturers can use to intelligently optimize products, processes, and decisions. Following this session,  participants will immediately be able to identify and implement statistical methods for process control and product optimization that will benefit their own operations. In under an hour, attendees will gain a fresh perspective on:

      • Process and Product Optimization
      • Measurement Systems Assessment
      • Process Stability/Statistical Process Control
      • Process Capability Assessment
      • Why Quality is "Closeness to Target"
      • Predictive Models (Design of Experiments)

For Production, Operations & Quality teams including:

  • Plant, Operations, & Production Managers and Supervisors
  • Process or Manufacturing Engineers & Managers
  • Quality Personnel, including QA, Supplier Quality and Quality Engineering 
  • Design Engineers, R&D Personnel, and Continuous Improvement specialists
