Course overview

Statistical Process Control, or SPC, 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. It is used in many industrial sectors such as automotive, aerospace, renewable energy and mobile power generation.

Who should attend?

This course is designed for Management Representatives, 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

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 automotive, aerospace and other engineering 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.
