Course Summary

SPC is more than simply gathering data and creating control charts. Masters SPC builds the skills needed to put an effective SPC program in place. It helps supervisors determine whether or not processes are capable and stable, and how to take whatever steps are most appropriate. The video-supported program emphasizes self-discovery through numerous application exercises. It”s an extremely efficient, cost-effective way to ensure optimum process operation.

Target Audience

Supervisors, Engineers, SPC coordinators, and all others who implement and interpret your SPC efforts will benefit from this course.
