|ASQ Presents!: Is SPC Working for You?: Managing Your SPC Program for Results|
Speaker: Mark Rusco
Statistical Process Control (SPC) seems like one of those no-questions-asked types of quality tools. Everyone does it. Everyone knows it works. But why doesn’t it work for YOU? Have you seen real improvements in your process because of SPC? Have you seen real reductions in scrap rates and customer complaints? If not, you may want to attend this discussion of how to implement an SPC program to provide results. It is assumed that you know what Control Charts are (like Xbar-R, X-MR, and the common attribute charts). We also won’t be talking about the mechanics of charting, like how to calculate control limits and find out-of-control conditions. This is a discussion about How-to apply the principles of SPC and move away from creating charts that are filed away just in case the customer calls.
