Applied SPC and MSA for Practitioners Classroom Training
Improve your understanding of the integration of statistical process control (SPC) and measurement systems analysis (MSA) into IATF 16949 and discover how to develop a higher quality process control system by selecting and applying the appropriate statistical tools. Through a combination of instructor-led training and team exercises, you learn how SPC and MSA can be applied to a manufacturing environment. The goal is to illustrate how these techniques can be incorporated into a system to provide for not only process improvement, but also product improvement. Important: The course requires you to come with a laptop loaded with Excel®. It is also recommended that you download the following demos: QI Macros and Minitab (latest version) before arriving to the class.
Must have a working knowledge of SPC and MSA or have completed Understanding and Implementing MSA and SPC training plus have a working knowledge of Excel®.
NOTE: Attendance to the entire course is required to receive a Certificate of Attendance with CEUs.
