SPC (Statistical Process Control) Training

from Quality One Australia

Process Stability is a primary desire of any industry, manufacturing, government or service. Consistent processes provide consistent quality good or bad. Stable processes can be improved further by applying the principles of capability. Control charts help the user understand what is likely to occur next and when an unstable condition takes place requiring study.

Pareto Diagram

Control Chart methods are also taught in Six Sigma courses, as they are a great benefit for those attempting to learn about a process for the purpose of improving it.

Many methods exist but the most commons ones are listed below:

  • X bar and Range
  • Individual moving range
  • Multi-variant control charts
  • C, np and u charts for attributes

Each chart method is selected based on the desired information needed.

Quality One Australia is the official distributor and consulting group for WinSPC software.


Capability is a term describing the processes ability to meet a specific specification. Indices such as Cp(k), Pp(k) describe how well a process is performing relative to the specification. For example: a Cp(k)= 1.33 means that the process is performing to a 4 sigma level to the closest specification or put another way, the side of the process distribution that is at most risk.

Cp(k) is used by many industries as a means of determining how well a process is performing. Key or Special characteristics are features that have the greatest benefit to customer satisfaction and are directly related to a customer expectation. Statistical Process Control (SPC) by itsí name means that the process and itsí parameters should be the primary items to monitor and control. Key or Special Characteristics which are dimensional, are one step away from the true critical control point which is the process. We believe a fervent effort should be undertaken to find the process parameters (energy) at the machine or station that affect the dimensional characteristics. Effort should also be taken to transfer control to the process and not the part.

Other indices exist as well, each with their specific purpose and use. Cp(i), Pp, Cp(u) etc...

Quality One Australia has been and continues to be dedicated to the primary use of Statistical Process Control (SPC) for business improvement.
