Question 6: What should we think about before starting to use SPC?

• If you are the person in charge, you need to get one thing straight: you are not the one who is supposed to use SPC in your own work, but your attitude makes the difference to whether it is used or not.

• Clear and logical software that helps the operators instead of making their job more complicated is an important point.

• Controling only the final operation in a process can cause you to miss problems farther back in the chain.

• Using SPC involves a new way of thinking: you view the whole process instead of single parts. So concentrate on changing old patterns of behaviour instead of getting stuck in technical discussions.

• Make sure that everybody understands what SPC is all about.
