Basic Statistical Process Control 
Introduction:
Process stability begins when people realize some variation is natural in every process. Understanding that producing the highest quality at the lowest cost comes from constantly striving to reduce the amount of variation. This program covers the basic concepts and tasks of collecting data, calculating values and constructing control charts. And it goes a step further, by explaining how to use SPC data to uncover problems, then apply basic techniques to analyze those problems, giving you useful solutions.
