Statistical Process Control
With SPC in many cases a change in the process, or in the instrument performance, is noted before the measurement is out of control, i.e. when the results are still within the acceptance limits. Timely actions can be taken, to prevent the next batch of material being discarded, thus saving costs.
Apart from quality control, SPC can also be used to provide a continuous record of system performance for ISO-type laboratory accreditation.
