Statistical process control (SPC) is a tool for monitoring the manufacturing process. To be effective, SPC must be coupled with a system for solving problems. The use of computer systems and a special organizational structure to achieve an effective SPC implementation are discussed. The facility is considered to be a wide area manufacturing system (WAMS) because various manufacturing support groups are located in different buildings around the manufacturing facility
