ASC's Corporate (At-Your-Location) Training Courses

All of our training courses and programs are "hands-on", and are offered at the client's facility, anywhere in the world.
ASC Proprietary Methodology
ASC uses its proprietary five-stage M/PCpS Methodology as the foundation for its Variation Reduction, as well as its Six Sigma Program.

But, as with all successful programs, this one too must start with upper management's full commitment and support. For this reason, ASC usually begins its Programs with an Executive Overview to help upper management through the strategic phase.

Training in the five-stage M/PCpS Methodology typically consist of three weeks and is broken down into the following three sessions:

Week One - M/PCpS Stage I, II & III

    Stage 1: Process Delineation
    Stage 2: Metrology Characterization
    Stage 3: Capability Determination
Week Two - M/PCpS Stage IV
    Stage 4: Optimization
Week Three - M/PCpS Stage V
    Stage 5: Control

NOTE: Other modules may be added to meet customer needs.
The Original Methodology for Six Sigma
Individual Training Courses (At Your Location)
Recognizing that some organizations have already undergone some level of training, ASC offers the following individual training courses to complement each organization's particular needs:
Executive and Management Courses Process Characterization
     The M/PCpS Methodology for Process Characterization - The complete methodology for machine and process characterization studies. M/PCpS is what allows you to reduce variation and achieve Six Sigma in every project, every study, every process, every time.
Metrology Characterization
     Measurement Systems Analysis - Learn about gauge repeatability and reproducibility studies (GR&R) for destructive and non-destructive testing.
Process Capability Determination Process Optimization
     Multi-Vari Chart and Analysis - A pre-experimentation technique to identify the major sources of process variability without manipulating process variables.
     The Design of Experiments - Learn how to plan, design, conduct and analyze statistically designed experiments (DOE).
Process Control
     Statistical Process Control - SPC is a method of monitoring, improving and controlling processes by collecting, charting and analyzing data from product characteristics or process variables.
     Total Control Methodology - TCM is a system that integrates a number of statistical tools to establish a preventive and continuous plan to control machine parameters and process variables, and monitor product characteristics, to maintain processes stable, predictable, capable of producing within specification limits.
We are Proud of Our "Hands-On" Training Approach
We take participants through lectures in which they learn the tools, methods, and concepts. Then, we help them apply the tools with equipment from their production facility.

This is, by far, the most efficient way to learn the application of statistical methods.
