Statistical Process Control
Statistical process control (SPC) involves using statistical techniques to measure and analyze the variation in processes. The intent of SPC is to monitor product quality and maintain processes to fixed targets. Statistical quality control refers to using statistical techniques for measuring and improving the quality of processes and includes SPC in addition to other techniques, such as sampling plans, experimental design, variation reduction, process capability analysis, and process improvement plans.
SPC is used to monitor the consistency of processes used to manufacture a product as designed. It aims to get and keep processes under control. No matter how good or bad the design, SPC can ensure that the product is being manufactured as designed and intended. Thus, SPC will not improve a poorly designed product's reliability, but can be used to maintain the consistency of how the product is made and, therefore, of the manufactured product itself and its as-designed reliability.
Six Sigma is a program applicable in any industry where variations in process results contribute to excess costs, wastes or increases in lead time. Six Sigma can help your company implement, maximize and sustain process improvements and can be used to improve production or administrative processes.
NVIE’s experts guide students through their Six Sigma implementation using company-specific improvement projects and applying the proven DMAIC (Defining, Measuring, Analyzing, Improving and Controlling) approach. Options include on-line, on-site, or in public workshops and include ASQ compliant Greenbelt and Blackbelt certifications.
