Statistical process control (SPC) comprises a collection of established techniques employed to ensure that both process and product quality align with customer demands. By effectively implementing these tools, organizations can consistently uphold the desired quality standard in a streamlined manner. Notably, SPC is a compulsory measurement analysis approach outlined in the automotive standard IATF 16949:2016. This course has been designed to equip participants with a comprehensive grasp of the principles and concepts underpinning SPC. Through this understanding, participants are empowered to apply SPC techniques accurately within their work settings, thereby fostering process stability and reliable quality outcomes

Learning Outcome
