About SPC Training


Who is SPC Training for?

Statistical Process Control (SPC) is for anybody hoping to retain the desired performance level of an important service, product, or process. Traditionally, its been most-often used by Manufacturing, Procurement, and Quality Professionals. Usually, Inspectors and machine Operators collect data using Gage R&R-validated measurement systems, and plot the data on their control charts for analysis and action by Manufacturing or Quality Engineers. Managers of these functions must also understand relevant terminology, plus how to read and interpret control charts. So, if you are in or want to be in one of those roles, then SPC Training is for you. In our course, Houston students learn:

SPC Training Course Overview:

SPC training gives Houston students the power to remotely detect supplier process changes. Not only can SPC detect changes in supplier processes, of course, it can also detect changes within your own factories. When a process launch is done correctly, Manufacturing Engineers document the process in its approved launch state. Documentation includes an SPC snapshot and calculation of control limits. After new processes are handed-off, local Production teams can refer on-going performance to the launch status control limits thereby knowing if any process inputs have changed resulting in an out of control condition.

Terminology. Our course begins with a review of SPC-related terminology including clearing up common confusion between capability and control.

Data Types. We review difference between attribute and variable data plus advantages and disadvantages of each.

Control Charts. All of the different types of control charts are reviewed including how to choose charts appropriate to the data type. Exercises are conducted allowing students to build several control charts themselves in class. Being the most prevalent in industry, focus is given to Xbar & R Charts.

Interpretation. Two systems of rules for detecting out of control conditions are presented with reasoning for why one is favored followed by several exercises detecting them.

Houston

Bayou City - Energy Capital of the World

Excellent choice! Houston began with discovery of oil at the Spindletop oil field near Beaumont. Oil combined with Galveston's hurricane devastation encouraged investment in the Houston ship channel and deep water Port of Houston. WWWII spurred ship building. Development of air conditioning made Houston's low cost of living more attractive to northern companies who began relocating there. Aerospace emerged. And Houston has flourished becoming the 4th largest city in the US by population. As such, Houston will keep you busy after SPC Training with popular museums, the zoo, huge stadiums, malls, possibly the world's largest rodeo, gardens, and a stunning aquarium.

Our MBBC trainer was very knowledgeable and informative in every area. The training was great for people with little to no experience or those with some experience already. He catered to what we previously knew about ISO/IATF. The course allowed me to practice my own skills which I liked most because you don't learn without trying. You also don't know what you don't know so having an instructor with all his experience / expertise helped foresee possible issues we may run into in the future so we are equipped to handle those.
