International Symposium on
Statistical Process Control
July 16-17 2009, Nantes, France
Why this symposium ?
For all companies worldwide, the quest for high quality products (and services) has clearly become a key point for business competitiveness. Among the numerous approaches used for improving the quality, the Statistical Process Control (SPC) plays a particularly important role.
All around the world, there are many researchers who are developping new SPC methods, trying to implement them into real industrial situations and publishing the results into international peer-refereed journals. But suprisingly, for these researchers, there are no recurrent meetings dedicated on this topic only.
Based on this finding, it has been decided to fill this gap and to launch in 2009 the first ever (as far as we know) International Symposium on
Statistical Process Control (ISSPC'2009).
The main objective of this symposium is to bring together a reduced number of selected researchers in SPC and let them present and share their current works. The second related objective is to strengthen existing collaborations and to foster new ones.
All SPC related topics are of interest and in particular:
- Control charts: adaptive (RR, VSS, VSI, VSSI, Vp), EWMA and CUSUM, autocorrelated, bayesian, non normal, with measurement errors, economical, with estimated parameters, multivariate, multiple stream, short runs, specific application (medical, services, customer satisfaction evaluation, ...)
- Capability indices: distributional properties (confidence interval, hypothesis tests), non normal case, multivariable case
