Description: Statistical Process Control Fundamentals

Have you heard of Statistical Process Control (SPC) but have no idea of how it works or what it does? Would you like to get a basic introduction without investing several hours in a full blown SPC course? Are you just interested in seeing how to use the tool, not being immersed in the theory behind it? If so, this webinar is for you.

Statistical Process Control is one of the “Basic Seven” quality tools. It is sometimes referred to as “Control Charts”, or even “Shewhart Charts”, after Walter Shewhart who initially described the technique while working at Western Electric Company. While SPC depends on statistical theory for its operation, it can be, and frequently is, applied with nothing more sophisticated than a piece of graph paper and a four-function calculator. This 90 minute webinar, “Statistical Process Control Fundamentals” provides a brief, painless and uncomplicated introduction to how SPC works and how it is used to improve processes. No statistical theory. No advanced math. Just the bare essentials.
