Quality & Statistical Process Control

Quality has been responsible for the success of many companies. Conversely, the lack of quality has led to the demise of some businesses. Integral Concepts defines quality as achieving the customers’ targets with minimal variation.

Although there are many soft skills that help in quality improvement, the pertinent statistical methods developed or promoted by leaders such as Shewhart, Deming, Box, Meeker, and Montgomery have been largely ignored or misapplied. The proper application of genuine statistical methods to predict and prevent quality issues is critical to maximizing profitability and market share.

Statistical Process Control (SPC) is a vital tool for manufacturers to ensure that process changes are quickly detected, thus avoiding potential adverse effects. SPC helps personnel to focus on minimizing variation in key process characteristics, so that customers consistently receive high quality products while scrap is minimized. Integral Concepts helps companies in many industries establish effective SPC programs.
