This two-day workshop provides the information you need to use in one of the most powerful tools in quality, statistical process control. The workshop helps people in design, quality, and production understand the concepts and effectively implement them. The examples and issues in the workshop come primarily from the medical device industry, but the material is applicable to any production environment.
Manufacturers must control production process to help ensure they are stable. While there are many control methods, the most powerful and often used is statistical process control, SPC. It uses data from the process itself to detect changes - changes that could result from an unstable process. SPC helps determine if a process continues to operate the way it was set up. If not, SPC produces a signal that calls attention to the problem.
One very important application is process capability analysis. With a stable process, SPC data can help determine if the process is capable of meeting the product specifications. The workshop explores the variety of process capability indices.
Continuous improvement programs can use the information generated by SPC to monitor process variation and identify its causes. These methods can reduce cost, improve product, and enhance customer satisfaction.
