Statistical Process Control (SPC) is an SPC performed during the manufacturing/assembly process not only .. If we review our basic understanding of the. After studying this chapter you should. • understand the purpose of statistical process control;. • be able to set up and use charts for means, ranges, standard. Without data we don't understand the process / product. So what? •. Without understanding of the process / product we can't control the outcome. Is it important.
This implies that SPC is less effective in the domain of software development than in, e. Variation in manufacturing[ edit ] In manufacturing, quality is defined as conformance to specification.
However, no two products or characteristics are ever exactly the same, because any process contains many sources of variability. In mass-manufacturing, traditionally, the quality of a finished article is ensured by post-manufacturing inspection of the product. Each article or a sample of articles from a production lot may be accepted or rejected according to how well it meets its design specifications.
In contrast, SPC uses statistical tools to observe the performance of the production process in order to detect significant variations before they result in the production of a sub-standard article. Any source of variation at any point of time in a process will fall into one of two classes. It refers to many sources of variation that consistently acts on process.
These types of causes produce a stable and repeatable distribution over time. It refers to any factor causing variation that affects only some of the process output. They are often intermittent and unpredictable. Most processes have many sources of variation; most of them are minor and may be ignored.
If the dominant assignable sources of variation are detected, potentially they can be identified and removed. When they are removed, the process is said to be "stable". When a process is stable, its variation should remain within a known set of limits. That is, at least, until another assignable source of variation occurs.

When the package weights are measured, the data will demonstrate a distribution of net weights. There are three issues that you should be aware of when using SPC charts to improve a process: You should not react to special cause variation by changing the process, as it may not be the system at fault You should not ignore special cause variation by assuming that its part of the process.
It is usually caused by outside factors which you need to understand in order to reduce them You should ensure that the chart is not comparing more than one process and displaying false signals. An example of this would be data covering two hospital sites, or two procedures that are very different SPC is a tool that will help you understand the scale of any problem the degree of variation and identify possible causes when used with other investigative tools e.
You are then able to measure the impact of any improvement: does it cause more variation - bad, or less variation - good? To understand more about variation click here. For more information on how to download this, please download the This package constructs all types of SPC charts to help you understand your processes. It helps you understand what you need to do and how to interpret the results step by step.
Some issues you may encounter when creating your own SPC charts: Available data - you may need to collect the data for analysis as it may not be available. The rising application of are concerned with the lack of guidelines in SPC imple- structured methodologies such as Six Sigma and Lean Six mentation within the food industry.
The usage is This review disclosed that the most cited challenges for mainly focused on weight and measurement control, where the food manufacturers to implement SPC are the resistance operators, although not statistically trained, are able to sim- to adopt SPC by various levels of the organisation, insuffi- ply follow the written procedure.
However, although the cient statistical knowledge and the lack of top management manual works well for untrained statistical staff on a work- commitment.
Such challenges can be addressed through ing level, it falls short of the full set of recommendations continuous training, increasing the awareness and knowledge within the DTI manual. It is recommended that to establish related to SPC implementation and subsequently, reducing accurate measures of medium-term process variance, large the resistance to the implementation.
Despite the list of chal- data sets and longer periods of data collection on an infre- lenges listed in the empirical studies, compared to previous quent basis, after significant changes in a process or estab- articles, this review identified that the SPC application man- lishment of new processes are used.

A process capability analysis may be performed on a stable process to predict the ability of the process to produce "conforming product" in the future. Please check your email for instructions on resetting your password. It is also perfectly normal for a process to show no signs of special cause. For example, as the cams and pulleys of the machinery wear, the cereal filling machine may put more than the specified amount of cereal into each box.
