Insights and practical implementation workshop


Mr V V Iyer

Data based management is insisted upon a lot by many customers, since intuitive
way of working and taking decisions is quite detrimental to one and all.
Statistical Process Control ( SPC ) is the technique, which has to be well
understood and implemented with right spirit. Surprisingly, many experienced
personnel does not show much of interest on SPC, due to the fear factor and lack of
ISO/TS 16949 mandates SPC as one of its requirements and today, not only the
automobiles, but also many non-automotives started embracing this technique,
since it is proved to be a wonderful tool to reduce variations.
This two day workshop will deal a lot on SPC techniques, with reference to the
