Are SPC charts mainly used as wallpaper around your organization? Do you recognize that they can be a powerful tool if used correctly? Want to learn how SPC can be part of your quality management system?

Control charts are graphical representations of the variation of a process’s critical characteristics over time, in order to control critical process characteristics; control the operation/process; identify special cause variation; and monitor CTQ characteristics. The SPC charts are used to prevent non-quality; to keep track of the process performances; and to maintain improvements. SPC is a basic tool to monitor and improve variation in a process; detect special cause variation, and gives a glimpse of ongoing process capability and is a visual management tool.
