Control Charts (SPC) Course


Learn how to select the correct control charts for quality control, how each chart is created, how the control limits are calculated, and the Nelson rules for identifying out of control conditions.


Control Charts are a key tool in any Six Sigma initiative, and the cornerstone to a strong total quality management organization. There are numerous run charts and control charts with lots of calculations. This course simplifies the understanding of Statistical Process Control (SPC) and statistical quality control by providing the formulas and detailed explanation of each chart, and how each data point is derived.

Note: There is a prerequisite for this course. Learners must be familiar with the concepts taught in the Capability course, such as: Mean, Standard Deviation, Histograms, Capability Indices (Cp, Pp, Ppk and Cpk) and the Normal distribution.

How long would it take you to develop your own course? Hours? Weeks? Unless you can develop a similar course in less than an hour, this course will pay for itself at least ten times over!

The course is yours to keep. Feel free to edit, change or modify however you want, or don’t change a thing and teach directly from our material.

No recurring costs, no “per student” charge, and no special software to download. Your employees can refer back to it anytime they like. Send it in a global email to everyone in your company, if you’d like!

Don’t spend thousands of dollars hiring a consultant to come in and speak in general terms. Use your knowledge of your company’s major problems to elaborate on the material we have put together. Unless you can show how these concepts relate to actual issues that your employees deal with, you will have a hard time making much of an improvement in the way problems are resolved.
