Introduction to Control Charting for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (EMU 150)

Control charting, a graphical presentation of measurement process behavior, is an exceptionally powerful statistical tool that is easy to learn. The benefits to control charting include confidence in stability of measurement process, rapid detection of large upsets, and insight into process behavior and improved estimation of measurement uncertainty.  A well-designed control charting program is one of many tools that can be used to ensure the customer receives valid measurement results.  Participants of this course will develop an understanding of basic control charting concepts, implement these concepts to build various control charts (I/MR, Xbar/R and Xbar/S), and evaluate measurement process stability.
