7 QC tools training

7 QC Tools


The need to meet and exceed customer expectations in a cost competitive environment makes the correct usage of the 7 QC (Quality Control) Tools imperative today for a unified and systematic approach to team problem solving. The tools help to develop and sustain a strong customer focus and improve all processes by identifying rejects, determining causes, suggesting improvements, and establishing tractability of each process. The 7 QC tools are fundamental for Continuous Improvement.

This course will show the participants the basics of teamwork and problem solving and how the 7 QC Tools are used in problem solving.

Duration: 2 Days

Target Audience:

All personnel / team members directly involved in continuous improvement / quality improvement initiatives

Programme Objectives:

At the end of this training, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the fundamental principles of problem-solving
  • Understand how to apply the 7 QC tools in the workplace
  • Comment critically on corrective actions raised as a result of applying the tools
  • Take ownership of applying 7 QC Tools as a corrective and preventive measure to avoid mistakes and improve product / service quality
  • Interpret and measure the effectiveness of implemented solutions
  • Implement corrective and preventive actions
