SPC Training Program

Statistical Process Control (SPC)

ON SITEOFF SITEONLINE

COURSE DESCRIPTION

What is Statistical Process Control (SPC)

SPC is the use of valid-analytical-statistical methods to identify the existence of special causes of variation in a process. All processes have variation; it’s important to understand if the variation is due to a common cause or special cause. This training will provide learners the ability to determine causes of variation and understand which cause directly impacts the strategy for problem-solving and continuous improvement.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

To provide an introduction and foundation of the SPC methodology. At the end of this course you should be able to:

⦁ Define the difference between common and special causes
⦁ Define the four parts of profound knowledge
⦁ Define the difference between part-control and process-control
⦁ Define a variable control chart
⦁ Define an attribute control chart
⦁ Define when a control chart shows an out-of-control condition
⦁ Define how many samples should be taken before calculating control limits
⦁ Define the type of control charts used for data based on defectives
⦁ Define the type of control charts used for data based on defects
⦁ Define an acceptable short-run control method
⦁ Define the control chart used for small changes in data
⦁ Define the control chart to use when dealing with Non-Normal data
⦁ Define the control method used on special characteristics submitted for PPAP
⦁ Define the indices used from the control chart to make calculations

COURSE OUTLINE

This course is broken down into sections that will grow the learner’s knowledge of SPC principles. The training is based on principles pioneered by Walter Shewhart and continued by Dr. Deming. This training covers the theory of SPC and the details on how to complete the process and, in the end, understand process capability.

This course is broken down into the following 5 Process Steps:

⦁ Continual Improvement and SPC
⦁ Basic Control Charts - Variable
⦁ Basic Control Charts - Attribute
⦁ Other Types of Control Charts
⦁ Understanding Process Capability

Step One: Continual Improvement and SPC

Focuses on understanding the basic concepts of SPC:

⦁ Introduction and History of SPC
⦁ Prevention Vs Detection
⦁ Process Control Systems
⦁ Common and Special Cause
⦁ Process Control Vs Process Capability
⦁ Process Indices
⦁ Process Improvement Cycle
⦁ Effective Use of SPC

Step Two: Basic Control Charts - Variable

Provides the following detailed steps to understand how to complete variable control charts and when they are used:

⦁ Preparatory steps
⦁ Control Chart Mechanics
⦁ Average and Range Chart
⦁ Median and Range Chart
⦁ Individual Moving Range Chart

Step Three: Basic Control Charts - Attribute

Provides the following detailed steps to understand how to complete attribute control charts and when they are used:

⦁ Proportion of Non–Conforming Items (P–Chart)
⦁ Number of Non–Conforming Items (np–Chart)
⦁ Number of Non–Conformities per Unit (U-Chart)
⦁ Number of Non-Conformities (C-Chart)

Step Four: Other Types of Control Charts

How to complete other types of control charts and when they are required:

⦁ Probability based charts – Stop Light / Pre-Control
⦁ Short Run SPC
⦁ Charts for detecting small change
⦁ Non – Normal
⦁ Other Charts

Step Five: Understanding Process Capability

Focuses on process capability. This step will explain how to understand variable characteristics and explain the typical terms of Cp, Cpk, and Ppk and when they are used (including PPAP requirements):

⦁ Definition of Process Terms
⦁ Indices – Bilateral Tolerances
⦁ Indices – Unilateral Tolerances
⦁ Handling Non – Normal and Multivariable Data

COURSE PREREQUISITES

This is a Level One foundation training module and is a Prerequisite for higher level (Competency, Proficient, and Expert) FMEA Certification. There are no prerequisites for this training.
