SPC Control Charting
What is SPC?
Simply stated, SPC is the use of mathematics, graphics and statistical techniques such as control charts to analyze a product or process and its output, so as to take appropriate actions to achieve and maintain a state of statistical control. Metalworking Lubricants Company is dedicated to the use of SPC throughout all of its operations, whether internally or externally. SPC is a major element in the daily function of our facilities.
Metalworking Lubricants Company utilizes SPC extensively in our Fluid Management Programs. The SPC creates a medium for both action and communication between partners.
Some of the documented benefits characteristic to our program through the use of SPC include:
- Decreased scrap, rework and inspection costs associated with better process control.
- Decreased operating costs by optimizing the frequency of tooling adjustments and fluid changes.
- Increased productivity by identification and elimination of variation and out-of-control conditions in manufacturing.
- Enhanced level of quality by controlled applications.
