Reviews of previous editions: 'I was particularly impressed by the ease with which a reader could use it for implementing SPC. It should be in the library of all organisations and on the bookcase of all individuals involved in process design, evaluation, control and continuous improvement of performance, products or services.' June 2005 edition of "Significance - statistics making sense", a publication of the Royal Statistical Society 'This new edition has been restructured to reflect the latest thinking in the field, giving the foundations of good quality management and process control. The book remains a solid and reliable reference to SPC.' QUALITY WORLD '...outlines all the techniques of SPC in a non-mathematical, practical way... useful in every industrial situation.' BSI NEWS '...if you want to know about and/or implement SPC you will gain much practical information and help from this book.' QUALITY NEWS 'Whether your sector is manufacturing, sales, marketing, finance, service, or public, this instructional guide to the tools of SPC is an essential practical guide.' - QUALITY WORLD, FEB 2003 Great for the newcomer to SPC in industry or management, 4 April, 2001 Reviewer: (email@example.com) from Ayrshire, Scotland As a statistician working in industry I am constantly looking for books that can get the message of SPC across to a mixed audience of analysts, engineers and managers. This book does just that in simple language, minimising the use of formulae and mathematical proofs with the added advantage of using examples that the reader can relate to. No prior knowledge of statistics is required to understand and apply the enclosed information. Reviewer: Paul Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org) from North West England, May 14, 2003 A really great book. Easy to read and understand, while catering for those new to SPC and the more experienced.
