Basic Principles of Statistical Process Control

The six principles below are the Basic Principles of Statistical Process Control (SPC). These can be clearly understood using Frequency Distributions.
The principles are listed below. The explanation is linked to each sentence

  1. No two things are exactly alike
  2. Variation in a product or process can be measured
  3. Things Vary according to a definite pattern
  4. Whenever things of the same kind are measured, a large group of the measurements will tend to cluster around the middle.
  5. It is possible to determine the shape of the distribution curve for the measured Output (Parts produced, transaction) by any process
  6. Variation is due to assignable causes tend to distort the Normal distribution Curve.
To Understand more on these principles, we can study the data from the output of the process. These foundation principles will be useful for all types of processes.

Basic Statistics – III – Introduction to Probability

 Probability is a concept which is simple but powerful if applied correctly. A Very Simple example is that when there is coin tossed up,there are two outcomes possible. HEAD and Tail. If the coin has no bias, both the out comes are equally possible. We say that there is a possibility of 50% (0.5) each. […]

The variables are the basic units used in statistics for measuring , collecting and analyzing. Variables can be classified in to different categories depending on the usage at the point of analysis. The different variable types […]
