What is Statistical Process Control and why use it?

Statistical Process Control (SPC) is a strategy for process improvement. Better product
quality, increased productivity and reduced waste are natural outcomes of successfully
applying SPC.  

As companies in both manufacturing and service operations strive to achieve world-class
levels of performance, the need for control over critical processes is clear. Whether your
department manufactures parts or produces paperwork, SPC can be used to improve
quality, increase productivity and reduce waste.
