This session will provide an understanding of three fundamental concepts of quality control: stability, capability and controllability.
The theory of each of these concepts will be described and will be followed with practical advice on how to apply these concepts in the real world. A top level approach to quality improvement will be presented along with practical tools to implement each phase of the quality improvement process. The goal is to provide participants with a practical approach to QC analysis and a roadmap for QC improvement.

After this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Define process stability, describe how to assess stability, and describe the steps to take to stabilize a process that is unstable.
- Define process capability, describe how to assess capability, and, if a process is not capable, describe the steps required to make a process capable.
- Define a QC plan and process controllability, describe how to assess controllability, and if if a process is not controllable, how to achieve controllability.
