Understanding and Implementing Measurement Systems Analysis

Improve the control methods within your manufacturing system through this introduction to Statistical Process Control (SPC). In this introductory course we pair the theory of Statistical Process Control (SPC) with tactical tools to give you the best chance at effectively improving the return on investment associated with your manufacturing control strategy. From control charts to capability indices you will gain an understanding of the underlying processes that enable better process monitoring and improve the robustness of process improvement initiatives. This course will provide both functional and applicable skills, as you will learn to select the appropriate tool for an identified purpose or recognize a more complex methodology, apply the selected tool, interpret the results of the application, and make correct decisions based on the interpretation to lead to better performing processes.
