This course introduces the use of statistical process control (SPC) which ensures that production systems maintain quality through predictive control of variations. Various distribution curves and statistical control charts are introduced through specific production problems. The interpretation and use of process and product control data is presented through simulations of real scenarios. The course will also prepare students for the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council's Quality Practices and Measurement exam. Writing assignments, as appropriate to the discipline, are part of the course. Enrollment Requirements: Grade of C or better in 340MFGT 139, AND Grade of C or better or concurrent enrollment in Math 125; OR Consent of Department Chairperson.
