|Machine / Process Capability Study
All of our training courses and programs are "hands-on", and are offered at the client's facility (on-site), anywhere in the world.
This course describes in full detail the sequence of events necessary to make machines and processes capable of producing product within specifications limits. These events are divided into five stages:
1. Process Delineation
The course presents a standardized methodology that leads to the identification, reduction or elimination of the major sources of variation in a manufacturing process. This course has no prerequisite. It will take the participant from basic definitions all the way to baselining the currect machine or process, leading to its improvement, and finally to its preventive control.
2. Metrology Characterization
3. Capability Determination
This is the original course that kick-started the Six Sigma implementation at Motorola, developed by Mario Perez-Wilson in 1986, and later evolved into the full version M/PCpS Methodology. The original titles of the five stages of M/PCpS were later modified by Allied Signal into Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC).

|We are Proud of Our "Hands-On" Training Approach
|We take participants through lectures in which they learn the tools, methods, and concepts. Then, we help them apply the tools to their own processes.
This is, by far, the most efficient way to learn the application of machine and process capability studies.
