Using quantitative tools is one way to manage data. What kind of solutions may be derived using various statistical process controls (SPC)?
Why is SPC training important to both company employees and managers?
Statistical Process Controls (SPC), “…is a statistical procedure using control charts to see if any part of a production process is not functioning properly and could cause poor quality” (Russell & Taylor, 2009, p. 104). Since no production process produces exactly identical items, SPC is employed to inspect and measure production processes for variations. Companies can detect variability such as random variability due to equipment or machinery, engineering, operators, defective materials, or errors
