Statistical Process Control




The course educates participants on the theory and application of SPC concepts which are today being recognized as fundamental in Process Management and Improvement. This course is designed in a manner where the requirements of statistics are minimized and practical examples maximized.

At the end of the course, participants should be able to set up the Control Charts and interpret histograms for determining CP and CPK value.

 How Will You Benefit

Upon completion of this programme, the participants will be able to:

  • Describe the purpose and use of SPC
  • Select the best measurement system to use for a specific application
  • Identify an appropriate process sampling strategy
  • Determine the basic type of control chart to use
  • Collect data and construct basic control charts
  • Interpret control chart results

Who Should Attend

This course is suitable for executives and supervisors either currently or about to implement Statistical Process control in their work environment. Ability to use calculator with Standard Deviation Function is required.


This course involves a wide range of learning approaches, including self – assessment, case studies, small group activities, discussions, interactive lectures, experimental learning group assignments, exercises and presentation and critique.
