SPC for Short Production Runs

Process monitoring using statistical techniques is standard practice in today’s production environment. In fact, most customers require suppliers to use it. However, many situations pose problems for traditional charting methods:

  • Small order quantities
  • Lean manufacturing (low volume/high mix)
  • Pilot and/or prototype runs
  • Machine runoffs

Through this course, gain a set of charting tools that work well with small lot sizes, are statistically efficient, and help drive continuous process improvement. You receive a comprehensive set of notes that can be used as a reference book after the program is over.
