Upcoming Courses

May 2017

  • Statistical Process Control

    Location: Rike Hall 160
    Date(s): Wednesday, May 3, 2017
    Cost: $279

    Students are required to bring a personal laptop with Microsoft Excel installed

    This course introduces how Statistical Process Control is used to make correct decisions for adjusting process inputs.  SPC introduces the concept of common and special cause variation and how to distinguish when each is occurring.  Process adjustments should only be made in response to special cause variation.  Reacting to common cause variation can cause wild swings in the process.  SPC for variable measures as well as counting defects are covered in the course.  In-class exercises are used to reinforce all topics.  Free Excel templates are provided that will create all of the SPC charts presented in class.

  • Measurement System Analysis

    Location: Rike Hall 160
    Date(s): Wednesday, May 17, 2017
    Cost: $279

    This course introduces the attendee to the concept of measurement uncertainty. All measuring instruments are susceptible to variation. Typically, measurement systems are evaluated to make sure this variation is small in comparison to what is being measured.  If not, erroneous decisions can be made. Poor measurement systems incorrectly show excessive variability in a process. Measurement system analysis, often times referred to as a Gage Repeatability and Reproducibility, is common in most industries and often required by the customer. In-class exercises for both variable and defect measures reinforce the material presented in class.

    Free Excel templates are provided.

  • Process Capability

    Location: Rike Hall 160
    Date(s): Wednesday, May 31, 2017
    Cost: $279

    *Students are required to bring a personal laptop with Microsoft Excel installed

    This course presents how to conduct a process capability study to ensure a process is capable of producing near 100% good product. Process capability introduces the concept of short term and long term variation and how to identify when each is occurring. Both must be shown to be stable and in control to ensure the process is capable.  Equipment that is not capable can produce a significant amount of scrap and could incorrectly portray the operator as the source of the problem. In-class exercises show the attendee how to apply the concepts learned during class. A free Excel template is provided that will perform a complete capability study.
