Applying Statistical Process Control Effectively

Many companies have failed to achieve the potential benefits from the application of statistical process control due to widespread misunderstanding and misapplication of the methods. When misapplied, great improvements in quality and productivity are not achieved. The consequences of the improper application of SPC include: devastating inefficiencies, poor purchasing decisions, a false sense of reality, and processes controlling human behavior rather than the humans controlling process behavior.
