# ATQT 1030 - Applied Statistical Process Control

Credit Hours: 2.00

Prerequisites: None

This course covers basic statistical methods as applied to manufacturing quality assurance, including frequency distributions (histograms, etc.), attribute and variable control charts (X-R, P, NP, etc.), capability analysis (Cp, Cpk), measurement system analysis, pareto analysis, brainstorming, cause and effect diagraming, and the 8-D problem solving approach.

Contact Hours: 2
Billable Contact Hours: 2
OUTCOMES AND OBJECTIVES
Outcome 1: Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to understand variable versus attribute data, the concept of and types of variation, applying Statistical Process Control tools to identify chance versus assignable causes, and the normal curve and deviations from the normal curve.

Objectives:

1. List and describe the statistical tools used for SPC and list and describe the types of variation found in manufacturing.
2. List and describe the statistical tools used for determining chance versus assignable causes of variation found in manufacturing. Accuracy using the material presented on chance versus assignable causes..
3. Identify and describe the statistical tools used for evaluating manufacturing processes with attribute and variable data.
4. Identify and analyze the statistical elements of a normal curve to determine capable manufacturing processes.

Outcome 2: Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to construct and analyze variable and attribute control charts.

Objectives:

1. Construct and explain average and range charts and individuals and moving range charts.
2. Identify out-of-control situations and assignable causes for applied manufacturing processes.
3. Construct percent defective number defective, and defects per unit control charts.
4. Identify out-of-control situations and assignable causes for applied manufacturing processes.

Outcome 3: Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to describe manufacturing process and machine capability, capability index and ratio, cause and effect diagrams, Gage R & R analysis, Pareto charts, root cause analysis, and other quality problem‐solving tools.

Objectives:

1. Apply capability index and ratio, apply the SPC tools to calculate and analyze machine capability, capability index and ratio for manufacturing processes.
2. Construct and evaluate cause and effect diagrams.
3. Explain the concepts of Gage Reproducibility and Gage Repeatability, and describe what constitutes an acceptable gaging process.
4. Calculate and construct Pareto diagrams for a manufacturing process.
5. Describe and apply the tools and steps used in manufacturing problem solving.
