Looking for a way to help shop floor people understand SPC? Try the check engine light analogy:
Has anyone seen a check engine light turn on in their car? Ever wonder how that happens? The computer in the car has an idea - or mathematical "model" - of how the engine is supposed to behave...

First piece inspections are intended to give us some assurance that our process is set up correctly. Typically one part is measured from each tool cavity, if each part is within spec there is a quality sign off and the machine operator is off and running. I've often wondered whether there is a...
Hi all, I am a footwear quality inspector struggling to come up with a proving equation that I can use to determine if a batch produced over an 1 hour period is deemed as conform or non conform.
