Statistical Process Control• The objectives and benefits of SPC
• Introduction to statistics underlying SPC
• Special and common cause variation
• Variation in processes and causes
• Calculation of basic statistics including standard deviation
• The normal distribution
• Sampling distribution of the mean
• Process capability analysis
• Process capability studies – characteristics, specifications, tolerances, sampling plans
• Process performance metrics
• Process capability indices Cp, Cpk, Cpm, capability ratio
• Performance indices Pp and Ppk
Control charts• Variable control charts
• Attribute charts
• Pareto Charts
• X-Bar / Range Charts / Sigma Charts
• Statistical Process Control for low volume / frequent process changes. The Z-MR Chart
• Individual-X Charts (X-Charts)
• Histograms / Process Capability Analysis
• Scatter Diagrams
• Exponentially Weighted Moving Average (EWMA) Chart
• Moving Average / Range Chart
• Moving Average / Sigma Chart
• Multivariate Chart
• p, np, c, and u charts
