  • Description
  • Contents

The key to remaining competitive in the world marketplace lies in the ability to understand and implement statistical process control (SPC) to reduce all forms of variations. In this book, Douglas Relyea demonstrates that SPC and the philosophy of continuous improvement can and do apply to manufacturing process in the flexible packaging field, including printing, conversion, lamination, and rewind/slitting.

• The SPC tools and techniques explored include :
• Historgams
• Control Charts
• Measurement error analysis
• Process capability studies
• Cause-and-effect analysis

The reader is introduced firsthand to the practical concepts of SPC through the lessons learned by "Joe", the Quality Assurance Manager of a fictitious company, Typical Flexible Packaging Inc. This is the story of Joe's discovery of SPC and how specific tools appropriate for the flexible packaging industry can be applied to slove problems and reduce process variation, scrap, and material usage.

In Practical Application of SPC in the Flexible Packaging Industry, Relyea underscores the importance of embracing SPC as an integral part of company-wide quality improvement efforts and stresses the value of abandoning more traditional quick-fix methods to solving problems.

Steering clear of statistical theory, he presents useful examples of SPC tools at work, making them easy to understand for those who do not have an extensive background in mathematics.
