Course overview   

Statistical Process Control is a method for gaining an understanding of the types of variation within a process and hence guide actions to either control or reduce this variation.

This course covers the SPC requirements for AS9145 – Advanced Product Quality Planning and Production Part Approval Process.

AS9103

This Standard is primarily intended to apply to new parts, but can also be applied to parts currently in production. The Standard shall be applicable to all production processes that influence the variation of Key Characteristics.

This Aerospace Standard is designed to drive the improvement of manufacturing processes through adequate planning and effective management of Key Characteristic variation. The Key Characteristic focus is intended to improve confidence for part features whose variation has a significant influence on to end- product form, fit, performance, service life and manufacturability.

Who should attend?   

This course is designed for Implementation Teams, Internal Auditors and others who are involved in the auditing or implementation of Statistical Process Control (SPC). Familiarity with basic statistical concepts would be beneficial but not necessary.


Benefits and Learning Objectives   

Statistical Process Control (SPC) can be used to understand the types of variation present within manufacturing process. By understanding the types of variation present actions can be taken either to eliminate the variation or reduce its impact. If the variation is excessive the process can be stopped to avoid making nonconforming product.

It is often mandated by primary manufacturers as a specific requirement to support the management of critical product or process characteristics. Companies that apply SPC successfully, see improved product quality, on time delivery performance and reduction in the cost of non-quality.

Delegates will become competent in implementing, undertaking and auditing Statistical Process Control concepts including variable and attribute studies.


Topics covered   

  • Overview of SPC
  • Concepts of process variation
  • Understanding common and special cause variation
  • Charting for variable data
  • Charting for attribute data
  • Control limits
  • Capability calculation

Certification   

Upon completion of the course you will receive an Industry Forum certificate of attendance.
