Statistical process control (SPC) helps improve quality and reliability while reducing operating costs. This can be achieved by gathering and analyzing data to determine the best manufacturing process for a particular workpiece. By focusing on critical characteristics of a part and allowable ranges, companies can ensure parts are produced within tolerance.

An upcoming webinar presented by Robert Fruit, senior system engineer CT-lab at Mitutoyo, will discuss three steps: the X-Bar and R chart, histogram chart and capability indexes, that help ensure control throughout the manufacturing process. In addition, these steps provide a visual representation of the process that show how it meets customer requirements.
