Quality control is important in the manufacturing industry. Thorough quality control brings many benefits such as reduction of waste loss and waste, gaining customer trust, and increasing equipment utilization rate.
Various data are collected at the manufacturing site for quality control. However, even though there is a lot of data, it is a fact that some companies have troubles such as not knowing how to organize and utilize it.
QC stands for quality control. Quality control is a method of scientifically controlling the quality of products to maintain a certain level.
Activities related to QC are called QC activities. It is an activity to improve quality by clarifying product standards, collecting data by testing and inspecting manufacturing processes and products, and combining statistical analysis, management, and improvement activities.
QC has a framework and concept called “QC 7 tools” that support analysis and improvement. These seven tools are effective when dealing with quantitative data in QC activities. However, in the field, not all problems appear numerically and can be treated as data.
The QC7 tool is a method used to quantitatively analyse quality control by numerical values such as statistical data. Specifically, it is a Pareto chart, a histogram, a scatter chart, a characteristic factor chart, a check sheet, a graph, and a control chart.
7 QC tools training greatly assist practitioners in a company or an organization in increasing productivity and helping make system improvements towards a better one. 7 Quality Control Tools are very useful to solve a problem that occurs, especially in a business process (production/manufacturing).
In a manufacturing industry, there are 2 major parts, namely the process of making a product and the product itself. One thing in common in these 2 major sections is that both can produce a “Problem”.
7 QC Tools are not only used as a problem-solving tool but can also be used as a tool in the process of improving a process/product so that it can help solve problems that often occur in industry and aids in carrying out Continuous Improvement.
The 7 QC tools training discusses a set of analytical tools in the field of quality control based on graphical statistical analysis. In general, these analytical tools can be used in various problems, not only fixing on issues related to quality. This training will provide professionals with an understanding of the purpose of each tool and how to interpret the information it produces. An understanding of the 7 QC Tools is essential for a continuous improvement process.
