Statistical Process Control
Accuracy & Consistency of Safety Quality, Delivery & Cost
An organization in any industry can resolve inconsistent performance outcomes of safety, quality, delivery and cost by using statistical methods at determining process capability, performance standards and a sampling plan. The sampling plan is the
data collection process that includes control charts, control limits and tolerances that signal the need to analyze process issues and implement corrective action before a process failure occurs. SPC is a valuable tool at improving the accuracy and consistency at delivering customer value.
Conventional SPC focus solely on quality, this approach uses statistical methods for the purpose of delivering total performance value considering safety, quality, delivery and cost.
This approach utilizes extensive implementation experience and will reference standards such as ISO 9000 and Food & Drug Administration 21 CFR 820 Quality System Regulation.
- Identify process objective and scope
- Review performance data and conduct situational analysis
- Define issue statement and objective
- Define process capability and acceptance criteria
- Design and implement sampling plan
- Expose process gaps and systemic issues
- Implement corrective action to stabilize process and gain performance accuracy and consistency
- Cycle through improvement process until process output satisfies performance accuracy & consistency objectives
