Statistical Process Control (SPC)

This workshop teaches the student how to set up the appropriate type of control chart for the process under study. SPC is one of the older tools for the process analyst and is a valuable tool for detecing shifts in the process.  For many, this is the first tool used to understand process behaviour. 

This workshop is suited for the technical person(s) responsible for process performance.
