The tools and technique used in Statistical Process Control have been used around the world to monitor and measure process variation and allow real positive changes to be made.
The majority of engineers and scientists have had some exposure to this important technique but in many cases this has been badly taught and they fail to see the usefulness of it properly applied.
This book has been written with the authors 30 years experience in practical Statistical Process Control and is aimed squarely at practising engineers and scientists rather than statisticians and mathematicians.
Practical Statistical Process Control takes a graphical approach using a software tool called Minitab.
The author concentrates on each step of using the technique with explanations along the way of each decision point.
Readers will find this guide both practical and useful, with copious screenshots of the software in use and clear precise explanations. The emphasis is on understanding the technique and being able to use it in real world applications.
* Provides tools and techniques for practical business and process improvement.
* Introduces screenshots and explanations for each step of SPC including the importance of assessing the measurement system and constructing control charts.
* A worked example, using Minitab sample data with clear explanations of the variables and analyses.
This book will be extremely useful to engineers and scientists who want to solve quality, process and manufacturing problems quickly and easily.
