Summary

Statistical process control is a very powerful tool. When used diligently, it can help improve quality, consistency, efficiency, and help reduce cost. In order for any SPC Program to be effective, commitment by the top management is the most important criterion. At Mulcoa, commitment came from top management, followed through and expanded on by the plant operating personnel. Results of these efforts are quite evident if one looks at the significant improvements in the quality of finished product that has been made.
