This webinar will introduce attendees to the foundations of statistical process control (SPC), including the effects of variation and accuracy on process quality. The definition of a Six Sigma process will be illustrated. Attendees will learn how to construct SPC charts that provide visual controls (easily understood signals) that tell production workers when the process requires adjustment to prevent the m..
This presentation will cover the fundamentals of measurement systems analysis (MSA), or gage reproducibility and repeatability, as required by ISO/TS 16949 and highly recommended otherwise. This includes the requirements in terms of parts and inspectors, as well as randomization of measurements, for a successful gage study as well as the mathematical calculations (which are in practice now handled by statis..
Attendees will learn how to calculate process capability and process performance indices that are often required by internal or external customers of manufacturing processes. The webinar will show the relationship between a Six Sigma process and its performance index. The webinar will then go beyond this textbook material to cover processes that do not follow the normal (bell curve) distribution, and for wh..
Traditional statistical process control (SPC) and process capability assessment techniques assume that the critical to quality (CTQ) variable follows a normal (bell curve) distribution. This condition is fulfilled far more often in textbooks than in real factories, laboratories, and so on. If the statistical distribution is not a bell curve, estimates of the nonconforming fraction (defects per million oppor..
A Leer, A Pat, A Joke, A Gesture, An Innuendo, A Kiss: Are You Prepared To Be the Next Social Media Blitz, Identified on #MeToo, or a Headline in the Newspaper?
Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, Al Franken, Garrison Keillor, members of Congress, and various State lawmakers have been accused of sexual harassment and/or sexual assault. But there is a difference between pulling one’s pants down in front of a female colleague at work and touching a woman on her buttocks during a photo op—isn’t there? What is that difference? Are both examples considered sexua..
This webinar will show how to use ANSI/ASQ Z1.9 (formerly MIL-STD 414) to define sampling plans for products with continuous-scale (variables) data, and use the accompanying switching rules to move between normal, reduced, and tightened inspection as required by the publication.ANSI/ASQ Z1.9 (formerly MIL-STD 414) is a widely accepted standard for sampling by variables (continuous scale measurements). The s..
Failure mode effects analysis (FMEA) and the control plan are both parts of advanced quality planning (AQP). FMEA, in fact, defines the control points or critical nodes of the control plan; process activities that must be controlled to ensure conformance of the critical to quality (CTQ) product characteristics. The dynamic control plan is a natural combination of the process FMEA and control plan into a sin..
