stored program control. A method whereby instructions are placed in the memory of a common controlled switching unit for use as a reference when processing calls. Instructions may include: class marks, code conversions, routing and trouble analysis.
Statistical Proces Control
Supplementary Protection Certificate. The name given in Europe to an extension of term given to a pharmaceutical or plant protection patent as a result of losing part of the term while awaiting permission to use the product.
Supplementary Protection Certificate. A supplementary protection certificate (SPC) extends the duration of the exclusive patent right solely in respect of medicines or plant protection products. The SPC comes into force when the relevant patent expires and lasts for up to a maximum of 5 years.
Statistical Process Control. The collection of process data and creation of control charting is a tool used to monitor processes and to assure that they remain In Control or stable. Control charts help distinguish process variation due to assignable causes from those due to unassignable causes.
Service Processing Center - facility where the INS processes and detains illegal aliens who are awaiting disposition of their immigration cases or awaiting removal from the country.
Statistical process control. A quality control method to continuous monitor a process rather than inspection of a finished product, with the intent to achieve control of the process and eliminate defective product.
Statistical Process Control. A managerial control technique that examines a process's inherent variability.
Statistical Process Control. A philosophy, system, and set of specific techniques for controlling and improving production and service processes.
statistical process control. A technique for keeping a process within specified performance limits by measurement, statistical analysis, and feedback. SPC is often used along with Design Of Experiments (DOE) to improve yield and provide other enhancements to a microelectronics fabrication line.
Statistical Process Control. Method used by printers to ensure quality and delivery times specified by customers.
Statistical Process Control. Use of charts and graphs to monitor, analyze, and control production processes.
Statistical Process Control. A method to ensure consistent manufacturing results. Machines are used to analyze variation in tablets. If a tablet does not fall within an acceptable range, it is automatically rejected.
Statistical Process Control. The use of statistical techniques to analyze a process or its output to determine any variation from a benchmark and to take appropriate action to restore statistical control, if required.
Statistical Process Control. The use of statistical techniques to provide quality control.
Statistical Process Control is a quality-control method focusing on continuous monitoring of the process rather than the inspection of finished products. (7/96)
Statistical process control. The application of statistical techniques to control a process. The term "statistical quality control" is often used interchangeably with "statistical process control."
Statistical process control; used for measuring the conformance of a product to specifications.
Acronym for Statistical Process Control.
statistical process control. The use of statistical techniques as a means of controlling the quality of a product or process.
Stored Program Control. As applied to telephone switch,its operation is governed by a set of instructions in the computer memory specifying the operations to be performed and location of the data on which these operations are to be performed.
Statistical process control. An analysis of a process through the use of statistical techniques that indicate whether the process is operating within appropriate control limits. SPC is used to monitor the quality of processes and products.
( Statistical process control) Use of variation analysis, with manual or computerized control charts, to detect non-normal variations in a process as quickly as possible.
Statistical process control. Analysis and control of a process through the use of statistical techniques, particularly control charts.
Statistical Process Control. A mathematical procedure for measuring and tracking the variability in a manufacturing process; developed by Shewhart in the 1930's and applied by Deming in TQM.
Statistical Process Control. Use of variation analysis, with manual or computerized control charts, to detect irregular variations in a process as quickly as possible. Often, SPC charts display upper and lower limits for part characteristics or process parameters and show trends over time, indicating when the limits are exceeded (or are about to be exceeded) and corrective actions are needed. In some closed-loop systems, adjustments are made automatically when readings indicate that a control limit is being approached.
Statistical Process Control. Statistical process control is the application of statistical methods to analyze and control the variation of a process.
