In this seminar you will learn why the tools and techniques of SPC work the way they do. This will free you from popular misconceptions and lay a sound foundation by providing clear explanations of the underlying theory. As a result, you will learn how to use process behavior charts more effectively.
The emphasis in this course is upon the "whys and wherefores" of SPC, rather than the "how-tos." Those with a practical working knowledge of SPC or those with an extensive background in statistics will benefit most from this course.
