The member will learn how SPC and process capability charts are used as part of a control plan
- After all the hard work we've done,…how can we monitor performance levels?…I have the chart for you.…It's called the Control Chart or SPC Chart.…What does SPC stand for?…SPC stands for Statistical Process Control.…Don't let the name scare you.…The purpose of the control chart…or SPC chart, is to indicate to you…when to leave the process alone…and when to intervene and troubleshoot.…Why? So that you don't react to random variation.…
Regardless of how well designed the process is,…there will always be some variation.…And even under the best operating conditions.…That variation is random variation.…You experienced random variation every day.…For example, when you go to work in the morning.…Let's say your commuting time averages 30 minutes.…Some mornings, it may take you 25 minutes,…and other mornings, 34 minutes.…Nothing special happened.…Should you change your route as a result…of this random variation?…No! You don't want to react to random variation…that is inherently present in every process.…
