Capability Analysis and Advanced SPC

Seminar Content

This three-day seminar covers Capability Analysis and SPC. This three-day hands-on seminar is designed to teach participants how to implement SPC within industries that have set up variation, slow and rapid tool wear, and continuous processes where adjustments occur on a daily basis. Emphasis on analysis of data and effects on the processes using eight types of control charts expands the users’ ability to address nonnormal, multivariate and unilateral variables.

Who Should Attend

This seminar is designed for individuals who have direct responsibility for defining and developing an organization’s measuring, monitoring and analytical processes using data collection, charts and statistical tools appropriate for its products, processes and business goals and objectives.

Recommended Training and/or Experience

Fundamental knowledge of computational mathematics is necessary for understanding the topics discussed.

Seminar Materials

Each participant will receive a seminar manual and a workbook including all team breakout exercises.

Please bring a calculator.
