Statistical Process Control(SPC)

7 Definitions

Using statistical analysis to detect changes in the process.
(SPC) Analysis and control of a process through the use of statistical techniques, particularly control charts / Or / the application of statistical techniques to control a process. Often the term statistical quality control is used interchangeably with statistical process control
defined by 6SixSigSigma
The application of statistical methods to analyze data, study and monitor process capability and performance.
Statistical Process Control. A method whereby data is collected and statistics used to understand process stability.
A major and essential part of Six Sigma. Useful in all the steps of Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control in DMAIC. "Statistical process control (SPC) is the application of statistical methods to the monitoring and control of a process to ensure that it operates at its full potential to produce conforming product. Under SPC, a process behaves predictably to produce as much conforming product as possible with the least possible waste. While SPC has been applied most frequently to controlling manufacturing lines, it applies equally well to any process with a measurable output. Key tools in SPC are control charts, a focus on continuous improvement and designed experiments.
The use of statistical techniques such as Control Charts to analyze a process or its output to take appropriate actions to achieve and maintain a state of statistical control and to improve the capability of the process.
defined by Lean Affiliates
The use of basic graphical and statistical methods for measuring, analyzing, and controlling the variation of a process for the purpose of continuously improving the process.
