Setting Product & Process Specifications using Quantitative Methods

Live Webinar

  • 90 minutes

Scientists, Design Engineers, and Manufacturing/Process Engineers must develop product and process specifications that ensure that products delivered to customers perform their intended functions over time.  If specifications are too wide, the risks of inadequate product performance and product failures increase.  If specifications are too tight, the costs to ensure conformance increase.  Scientific and engineering theory, knowledge, and principles play an important role in developing specifications, but usually this must be combined with testing and data analysis to verify appropriate specifications.

Join this session by expert speaker Steven Wachs, this webinar covers useful and important statistical methods that assist scientists and engineers in the development of appropriate product and process specifications.

Session Highlights:

  • Introduction

  • What are Specifications?

  • Why Are Specs Important?

  • Risks of Inappropriate Specifications

  • Characterizing Process Data

  • Normal Distribution

  • Characterizing Process Data

  • Reference Intervals

  • Min - Max Interval

  • Tolerance Intervals

  • Coverage Probability and Confidence Levels

  • Using Predictive Models to develop specifications

  • Review of Predictive Models (Regression/DOE)

  • Confidence and Prediction Intervals

  • Using Models Examples (Contour Plots)

  • Factor Specifications to Optimize a Response

  • Factor Specifications to Jointly Optimize Multiple Responses

  • Monte Carlo Simulation with Models

  • Simulating Actual Results

  • Optimizing Input Settings using Simulation

  • Sensitivity Analysis to determine impact of input variation on key responses

  • Using Results to finalize input specifications

Why You Should Attend:

The information gained in the webinar will allow you improve your ability to develop appropriate and defensible specifications.  This manages the risks of overly liberal specifications and the costs associated with overly conservative specifications.

  • Review Product/Process Specifications and why they are important

  • Learn methods for characterizing existing process data to describe expected variation in the population

  • Using predictive models, identify input parameter specifications that ensure key outcomes will be met with high confidence

  • Use Monte Carlo simulation with predictive models to optimize specifications

Who Should Attend?

The target audience includes personnel involved in setting component, product, and process specifications.  The methods also apply to service specifications.  Typical job titles would include:

  • Quality Personnel

  • Product Design Engineer

  • Scientists

  • Process Engineer

  • Manufacturing Engineer

  • Product / Program  Manager

  • Operations / Production Manager
