Statistical Process Control Course


Statistical Process Control is a quality control method that relies on statistical techniques to monitor, control, and improve processes. It is widely used in manufacturing, service, and other sectors to ensure consistency, identify variations, and maintain process stability.

It provides sound information upon which to make decisions. It allows process performance tracking on a real-time basis, allowing for corrective actions to be taken before failure occurs. The best decisions are made using facts and data. The collection and interpretation of data is equally important in manufacturing and service environments.
