Join Us on February 21st for a presentation and discussion with Aaron Emmert, Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt.
The simple and effective Shewhart chart has been the cornerstone of statistical process control (SPC) for nearly 100 years. As big data invades the world, however, the Shewhart chart and traditional SPC methods are losing ground to their contemporary alternatives. Contemporary alternatives are computationally intensive but offer notable improvement in the both the effectiveness and efficiency in detecting the presence of special cause variation in almost any data set. The inner workings of such a universal trend detector are explored and put to the test on both simulated and real-world applications. It can perform with exceptionally low error rates and requires minimal administrative maintenance. Join us for a fun and interactive session that explores the next generation of statistical process control methods in the world of big data.
- Discover challenges that exist with traditional SPC methods in the face of big data.
- Understand the importance of artificial intelligence in managing SPC on big data.
- Get a method for creating a universal trend detector.
- See how a universal trend detector performs compared to traditional SPC.
