Statistical Process Control (SPC) provides the means for the control of product quality and the reduction of process variation.

  • Definition of “process”
  • Process capability
  • Central Limit Theorem
  • Normal and binomial distributions
  • Special cause and assignable cause variation
  • X and R charts, plus I/MR charts for individual observations
