BO 205 – JMP Training : Advanced Statistical Process Control – 2 days

Statistical process control is a statistically-based family of tools used to monitor, control and improve processes. However, selecting and setting up the right type of SPC control chart for a given process is crucial to getting the most benefit from statistical process control.

Developing a comprehensive understanding of advanced statistical process control techniques can take months or even years and often involves building an extensive library of SPC books and reference materials. But now, all of the information needed to achieve a thorough understanding of SPC is contained in this compact yet comprehensive course. By using the Advanced SPC online training course, your Six Sigma Black Belts or lean manufacturing in-house experts can learn how to apply advanced statistical techniques and concepts throughout your operation.

Key learning points:
Understand the concepts of advanced SPC
Navigate the JMP Advanced SPC interface
Setting up real time advanced control chart through JMP software
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 advanced statistical process control in a real company setting.
