SPC QuickStart Guide
|Publication Date:||1 March 2015|
The new CQI-25 SPC Quick Start Guide is a supplement to the full SPC Manual and provides the building blocks of statistical process control for those who are new to the topic or have only experienced SPC from a limited perspective. The Quick Start Guide covers about 90 percent of the full manual's SPC applications in a succinct format with text and graphics and includes examples of the most commonly used control charts with easy-to-understand calculation sheets. Suppliers have struggled in the past with quickly finding answers to their SPC-related questions because of the full SPC Manual's size and detail. The new SPC QSG helps suppliers easily find and understand how to apply the most necessary methodologies. The SPC QSG synthesizes the key information from the SPC Manual down to its core, focusing the new guideline on what is critical and necessary. The Quick Start Guide also designates the levels of importance for different methodologies, so suppliers can prioritize their SPC deployment activities.
The purpose of the SPC Quick Start Guide (QSG) is to convey the building blocks of SPC for those new to the topic or for those who have only experienced SPC from a computer's perspective. Through discussion of the fundamental tools and advocacy of a back-to-basics approach, the QSG presents the subject matter in a straightforward manner to benefit a majority of applications.
The QSG is not intended to supplant the AIAG SPC Manual 1 but to supplement and simplify its contents when a direct application is called for.
