Statistical Process Control: Understanding and Managing Variability

May 21-22, 2015

 

A critical input for improving process performance is the understanding of its behavior over time. This process behavior is primarily driven by the presence of variation due to process inputs and process controls. Identifying these causes of process variation is crucial to managing processes, which would lead to better quality.

 

Statistical Process Control deals with the principles, requirements, usage and interpretation of control charts. The session will demonstrate different control charts applicable for manufacturing and services. In addition, the session will also show how control charts can be used to help establish the capability of your processes.

 

More importantly, this session will focus on how to set-up these control charts in your organization and provide practical guidance on how to make control charts useful and manageable for your organization.

 

 

This learning session will be making use of hands-on interactive process simulation and computational exercises with the use software. Towards the end participants will be asked to pick an actual process in their company and plan for the set-up and implementation of control chart for this.

The session will be strictly limited to 18 participants only. This is to ensure a high engagement interaction between the Mentors/Facilitators and the participants.
