The cost of quality is the expense of not doing things right first time, causing valuable resources to be spent finding and reworking defective products.

Statistical Process Control (SPC) eliminates this waste acting as a detection device to indicate when something is going wrong with the process. Superior Product Quality is achieved by identifying and resolving the causes of the process variation. SPC is an essential tool for companies implementing ISO 9001,TS 16949 and Six Sigma.
