Course Overview

The Pyzdek Institute Statistical Process Management workshop is hands-on and based on a systematic error-proofed workflow. The workshop blends Lean Principles, process behavior charts and proven statistical methods to develop new products, solve difficult process problems, gain new knowledge, and maintain process stability. In addition, the course provides guidance on Process Capability Analysis, insight into common SPC myths and advice to avoid common pitfalls.

This highly visual Pyzdek Institute course teaches a systematic 3-step approach to Statistical Process Management that helps attendees understand their data and make important business decisions. The course content is relevant to the healthcare, plastics, food processing, machining, aerospace, automotive and other manufacturing industries. A Certificate of Accomplishment is issued to attendees that regularly attend and demonstrate a good understanding of the course content.

  • Format: Instructor-led
  • Level: Intermediate
  • Location: On-site or Online
  • Duration: 24 Hours


The course can be taught with JMP®, SigmaXL® or Minitab®, statistical software. In either case, attendees should have a good understanding of software fundamentals including navigation, menu structure, data integrity, annotations, and graphing. The course includes a 2-hour online session for those without statistical software experience.

To get the most out of the course, attendees should have their own PC, a recent version of the statistical software, a 2-way headset and a webcam. Two monitors are highly recommended.
