Course Duration: 2 Days

The seminar provides basic knowledge of statistics, such as mean value, range, standard deviation and their application in relation to production processes, deals with process capability and the creation and evaluation of different control charts.

Target audience:

Development engineers, development teams, process engineers, quality engineers, shift supervisors, team leaders in production who are entrusted with tasks related to the execution and planning of sampling inspections to determine process capability.

Training structure

  • Variation and its causes
  • Basics of statistics: population and sample, distribution, mean value, range, standard deviation, normal distribution
  • Stable processes and predictability, sporadic and systematic errors
  • Overregulation and funnel experiment
  • Central limit theorem
  • Process capability and confidence intervals and proportion of defective products for bilateral tolerances as a function of process capability. Process capability criteria for PPAP acceptance
  • Commonly used SPC Control charts
  • Statistical steering with control charts
  • Out-of-control signals for xbar cards, rules for pattern recognition
  • Process improvements with SPC
  • Stumbling blocks in the implementation of SPC
  • Process capability and test process suitability

Special features:

  • As there is a variety of different control charts, specific operational needs can be addressed by prior arrangement in order to optimize the effectiveness of the seminar.
  • The seminar contains practical exercises to illustrate the function and benefits of statistical tools.
  • If desired, the use of software can also be considered.
