What Is Statistical Process Control Software?
In manufacturing, statistical process control (often associated with overall equipment effectiveness, or OEE) describes the process of collecting quality control data for statistical analysis. The collection of this data allows manufacturers to identify any quality concerns that need to be addressed before they escalate into expensive problems. Statistical process control can be applied to individual components or end-products to ensure they perform within specified parameters. SPC can also be applied to manufacturing tools and machines themselves to optimize machine output.
