This is a review of the Correct SPC:  the correct use of SPC in precision machining presentation. This presentation destroys the myth of the normal curve in precision machining! I go into the correct distribution, and the proper setup of control charts that allow absolute control of the process! This presentation takes the next step and shows a case study where data was taken side by side using the X hi/lo-R chart, the X bar/R chart and I/MR chart.  The results are astounding! It should be evidence enough to never use X-bar/R or I/MR charts for precision machining ever again!
