Welcome to the SPC/Process Capability Training course!
The information presented here provides an important opportunity to strengthen our individual and collective knowledge, skills, and work processes to enable us to thrive in the global competitive arena.
Customers demand that we engineer, manufacture, and supply components and systems that are of world-class quality and reliability. To achieve this, products must be optimally designed to meet all performance requirements and maintain robustness in the wide variety of use environments they encounter.
Additionally, customers expect and demand absolute consistent performance from every unit we ship. This is best accomplished by an intense focus on understanding and minimizing variation in our products and the processes that produce them.
Traditional inspection procedures are no longer sufficient and do not drive us hard enough toward minimizing variation in important product characteristics. The methods that do drive us toward achieving high levels of process capability, supported by stable and consistent processes, are critical and are the focus of this program.
Introduction to the Course
Welcome and a little background and motivation for the material in this course.
The key training objectives are summarized below:
- Understand the importance of reducing variation in key characteristics
- Implement control charting to assess process stability
- Select appropriate control charts for a given application
- Determine appropriate sampling plans and sample sizes
- Interpret control chart signals and implement appropriate reaction plans
- Assess process capability for new processes, relocations, process changes, and continuous improvement
- Apply specialized charts when needed
