Advanced Statistical Tools Training


This two-day Training is designed to provide participants with an understanding of advanced topics of statistical process control through presentations, illustrations and examples of the analysis of data. Participants learn how to implement SPC within industries that have set up variation, slow and rapid tool wear, and chemical processes where concentration adjustments occur on a daily basis. Emphasis on analysis of the data and effects on the processes using eight types of control charts expands the users’ ability to address non-normal, multivariate, and unilateral variables.

The purpose of this course is to clearly explain all of the basic principles of Statistical Process Control (SPC), teach the student how to implement SPC, and explain how to interpret SPC Control Charts in order to better monitor the production line and diagnose problems in manufacturing. This Training is consistent with the DCX, Ford GM manual Statistical Process Control, 2nd edition.
