Statistical Process Control Training, Statistical process control (SPC) course


Statistical process control (SPC) training course introduces key concepts behind SPC or statistical process control, a statistically-based family of tools used to monitor, control, and improve processes.

Participants of Tonex’s statistical process control training will learn about the details of SPC, control charting, other procedures and tools to apply them in their projects. Applicable statistical process control (SPC) techniques and methods are examined used to improve various processes to achieve higher percentage yield and higher quality products or services including: key process parameters, quality KPIs and characteristics, measurement systems, various sampling strategies, popular variable and attributes control, construction and applying different control charts, moving average charts, c charts, np charts, p-charts, u-charts,  x-bar and R-charts.

Who Should Attend

Statistical process control (SPC) training course is designed for engineers, quality managers, operators, project managers, product process control,  analysts, quality process, improvement associates, inspectors a technician who need to learn and apply statistical process control (SPC) concepts in their projects.
