This in-depth introduction to SPC examines
the technical aspects of the practices and procedures that are used to apply
the quality management system in manufacturing.
Provides a description and history of SPC
along with an analysis of how it is applied to control quality costs,
productivity, product improvement, and work efficiency. Includes a new chapter
on the "Tools of Quality" that provides a complete explanation of
the seven basic tools. Presents an improved discussion on the nature of
control charts and a complete rewrite of most of the text to better facilitate
an understanding of current trends in quality management. Covers unusual but
important topics such as, humanistic concepts, DOE (design of experiments),
and the probability rules and distributions needed for acceptance sampling.
Takes special care throughout to fully explain how to read and interpret the
various control charts used in the implementation of SPC.
