EasySPC Frequently Asked Questions

Our EasySPC expert team answer some of the most frequently asked questions on SPC and EasySPC. Got another question? We’re here to help.

  • What is Statistical Process Control?

    Statistical Process Control is the use of analytical tools that plot data over time to help users visualise variations in their data. Understanding these variations helps guide decision makers to take the best course of action to standardise their data.

  • What makes SPC effective?

    SPC process improvement is effective because it enables users to easily see whether or not an implemented change has resulted in improvements. By employing SPC software rules to data, users are able to tailor SPC charts to the specific process they are measuring.

  • Can my business use SPC?

    SPC has been implemented across numerous service oriented industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, financial services and public services. However, any organisation that uses repetitive processes would be appropriate for implementing SPC software. So long as you have measurable products or processes, SPC can be applied.


  • What is the difference between common and special cause variation?

    Common cause variation are causes that are inherent in a system over time. Common cause variation falls within the control limit (within the UCL and LCL) of a control chart, and shows a process is stable over time.

    Special cause variation are causes that are not part of the process or product methods, but arise due to specific circumstances. Special cause variation are the assignable causes of variation in a process and the focus of process improvement.
