Overview:

This 6-hour workshop includes a presentation of the steps and techniques used to quantify variability in manufacturing processes, and to assure quality products. All processes exhibit intrinsic variation. However, sometimes the variation is excessive and this hinders the ability to achieve reliable measurements and desired results.

Statistical process control (SPC) and statistical quality control (SQC) allow us to control the functions of our processes (input) and the quality of our product (output) by providing tangible tools for monitoring and testing.

The concepts and information presented will be mainly concerned with statistical process control: obtaining monitoring information (data) that is objective, unbiased, and useful for decision making.

Process and quality control are important for a company’s reputation. A good system of processing and quality checks reduce costs associated with production waste and re-work due to defects, and allows a company to deliver products that are high in quality. Many industries are also required to have a good quality management system in place to achieve compliance with regulatory authorities.

The objective of the seminar is to provide information that can be used immediately by personnel involved in production operations, and by supervisors and management in decision making. Although the presentation involves use of statistical techniques, presentation of statistical theory will be limited to only what is needed by the attendees to understand and implement processes and monitoring tools within the statistical framework.

Presented examples will include an emphasis on the manufacturing processes and quality assurance needs of product in the medical device and pharmaceutical industries.

Process and quality control are constantly evolving. Therefore, historical concepts, current trends and regulatory requirements will be discussed. The presentation of statistical charts and analyses, graphical techniques for planning, trouble-shooting and problem solving will also be presented. Minitab statistical software will be used to demonstrate data collection and input, and how to build and interpret various process control charts for both attributes and variables data. The seminar will also include the use of Minitab to develop attributes and variables sampling plans for quality assurance and acceptance. A handout and dataset will be provided to attendees so they may work hands-on with the information presented in the seminar.

Why should you attend:

All processes exhibit intrinsic variation. However, sometimes the variation is excessive and this hinders the ability to achieve reliable measurements and desired results. Statistical process control (SPC) allows us to control the functions of our processes (input) by providing tangible monitoring tools.

Process control is important for a company’s reputation. A good system of processing and checks reduces costs associated with production waste and re-work due to defects, and allows a company to deliver products that are high in quality. Many industries are also required to have a good process management system in place to achieve compliance with regulatory authorities.

This seminar will provide attendees with the statistical tools necessary to monitor processes to ensure the quality of manufactured products. Ms. Eisenbeisz will take use of Minitab software in her presentation.
