Quality Control in Manufacturing

Course Objective

This course aims to equip participants with a comprehensive understanding of Quality Control (QC) principles and practices in manufacturing. Participants will be guided through the process of implementing a quality control system, fostering a culture of quality, and overcoming common challenges in quality control. Through real-world case studies and practical examples, participants will gain the ability to apply these concepts to their own manufacturing processes and stay updated with future trends in quality control, particularly the role of technology in shaping its evolution.

By the end of the training, attendees will be proficient in utilizing QC tools and techniques enabling them to ensure consistent product quality, reduce defects, and drive ongoing improvements in their manufacturing processes.
