Stop the cycle of fire fighting and get “in control”! ┬áThis course will help you survive through solving problems and building prevention based systems. ┬áThe seven tools of SPC are taught in the context of a problem solving process not as independent statistical tools.

Workshop Topics

  • Problem Solving Methodology: Your survival guide to using the “right” tool at the “right” time
  • Basic Problem Solving Tools: Check sheets, Pareto analysis, flow charts, cause and effect analysis, scatter diagrams, histograms
  • Control Charts: Statistical basis or “Do they work and why?”, X-Bar and R charts, X-Bar and Moving Range charts, p charts, np charts, c charts, u charts, zone control charts, sample sizes, rational subgrouping, control chart interpretation, response strategies
  • Process Capability: Capability analysis, Cp index, Cpk index, specification setting, gage capability or “Do my measurements really mean anything?”
  • SPC Implementation: “How do I sell others on SPC and get them to do it?”
