Listen to what happens when a simple attempt to implement SPC unearths some disturbing quality and process design flaws. Everything from gage choice and usage, process flow, machine location, material temperature control and incorrect specification all come together to create a whirlwind of chaos. This is a real case study, scrubbed to protect the victim. See how a few useful tools sort out the mess. But can it be totally fixed? Find out!

This presentation is very controversial, as it destroys the myth of the normal curve in precision machining!
