## Statistical Process Control Using SAS/QC SoftwareThis course is designed for professionals who use quality control or SPC methods to monitor, evaluate, and improve the quality of their processes. It is an ideal statistical training module to complement or supplement corporate quality training programs and Six Sigma programs. The self-study e-learning includes: - Annotatable course notes in PDF format.
- Virtual Lab time to practice.
Learn how to
use SAS/QC software to
- Perform distribution and Pareto analyses.
- Create run charts and determine rational subgrouping strategies.
- Create Shewhart control charts, including specialized and advanced charts.
- Perform analysis of means (ANOM) and create ANOM charts.
- Perform graphical and statistical capability analysis.
## Who should attendEngineers, chemists, health care workers, statisticians, and others who use quality control or SPC methods in their work
Before attending this course, you should: - Complete SAS Programming 1: Essentials or have equivalent knowledge.
- Understand basic statistical concepts such as normal distribution,
*p-*values, and ANOVA. You can gain this understanding by completing the Statistics 1: Introduction to ANOVA, Regression, and Logistic Regression course.

- Generate Pareto charts.
Shewhart Control Charts- Explain goals of control charting.
- Differentiate between sigma limits and probability limits.
- Use the SHEWHART procedure to generate control charts.
- Differentiate between using the range and using the standard deviation to estimate sigma.
- Automate generation of control charts.
- Create email notifications of out-of-control processes.
- Distinguish between binomial and Poisson data.
Advanced Topics for Shewhart Control Charts- Understand autocorrelation in process data.
- Use ARIMA models to generate a control chart for autocorrelated data.
- Identify and describe multivariate process situations.
- Generate multivariate control charts with appropriate control limits.
- Identify situations in which multiple sources of variation might be present.
- Generate control charts appropriate for multiple sources of variation.
Analysis of Means- Compare and contrast analysis of means (ANOM) with analysis of variance and Shewhart charts.
- Identify the three types of ANOM charts available in the ANOM procedure.
- Create an ANOM chart for measurement data using multiple responses.
