Before diving into the details, it’s necessary to analyze what is statistical process control. Statistical process control (SPC), which is sometimes referred to as Statistical Quality Control (SQC), is an immensely effective solution to the quality management concerns of nearly any organization in the manufacturing space. SPC is the standard system for companies throughout the industry to analyze, measure, and control quality during any and every process.


But how does statistical process control work? To put the answer in layman’s terms, real-time data is collected and plotted onto an SPC chart. The data and plot points are based on pre-determined limits set by key decision makers within the company. This allows any team in the manufacturing space to monitor all processes, discover problems they may not have realized existed, and begin finding the solutions to solve those very concerns.


Why Should I Use Statistical Process Control?

We all want improved quality, but defining the metrics that truly make our manufacturing quality better can vary. Through this system of data collection, control charts, and process improvements in the manufacturing industry, your company will soon see tangible benefits that include:


  • Optimized operations
  • Simplified workflow management
  • Reduced waste, rework, overfill, recalls, and held lots
  • Real-time reporting that facilitates informed decision making


These are just the beginning of what quality control in your manufacturing processes can do for your business. Even better, each of these advantages works to protect your bottom line and help your operators create more efficient processes throughout the entire system. Even when costs rise in areas like raw materials or labor, you can keep expenses down through premium Quality Management for Manufacturing.
