BO 204 – JMP Training : Quality Control and Statistical Process Control – 2 days

Statistical process control (SPC) involves using statistical techniques to measure and analyze the variation in processes. It aims to get and keep processes under control. Most often used for manufacturing processes, the intent of SPC is to monitor product quality and maintain processes to fixed targets. Statistical quality control refers to using statistical techniques for measuring and improving the quality of processes and includes SPC in addition to other techniques, such as sampling plans, experimental design, variation reduction, process capability analysis, and process improvement plans.

Learn how to
Navigate the JMP SPC interface
Setting up real time control chart through JMP software
Setting JMP alarm functions
Triggering of process violation rules
Effective root cause analysis through JMP software
Interpretation of analysis results

Training Approach
This practical course combines classroom teaching, practical exercises, and group discussion with actual factory based projects to provide a complete action learning experience. The course has been designed to enable all participants leave the training room with a set of new knowledge, tools, skills and direct experience of how to use JMP software for statistical process control in a real company setting.
