Design and Implementation of SPC Systems in Defense Industry Manufacturing Process

Ismar Hrvacic


In this paper Statistical Process Control (SPC) was proposed for manufacturing process of a defense product manufacturing company, with the aim of improvement product quality. The production process was monitored from material input to the final output. The processes were mapped and SPC system was proposed. The system was tested by collecting data at the collecting points and analyzed by appropriate SPC tool such as: X ̅R chart,( X) ̅S chart and the p-chart. The results show that the processes in the some parts in production are in the under control, processes are capable, but not centered, also some sub-processes of production are not in the control but also not capable.
