Deep Dive in Capability Analysis & Statistic Process Control

1,5 day: Intensive Training in Capability Analysis and Statistic Process Control (SPC)


Within organizations metrics for performance / capability are used in order to find out its current status and where to focus on their improvement efforts. It can be reported in various ways, e.g. balanced scorecards, deviation reports, financial monitoring, metrics such as KPI.

“Do we have effective goals and metrics?"

"Can we determine whether the improvement is a real improvement or just common cause variation?”

We will learn how to set goals, how to make measurable goals, how to interpret the results and how to monitor and control performance over time. We will introduce different capability measurements, capability studies for attribute and continuous data, how to deal with short-term and long-term capability and various control charts.
