Statistical process control in food manufacturing
Reduced waste and more consistent quality are just two of the benefits from using statistical process control (SPC). Rather than inspecting a product at the end of manufacture, SPC uses statistical tools to observe the performance of a process to predict significant deviations - effectively monitoring a process through the use of control charts. There is inherent variability in even a high quality product, which can be detected if sufficiently sensitive means of measurement are used. By collecting data from samples at various points of a process, variations that may affect quality can be detected and corrected. Campden BRI experts are available to help companies use SPC for a variety of manufacturing processes.
