ABSTRACT
The article discusses statistical process control (SPC), a method that provides data analysis for understanding process change and variation. SPC is an inductive mechanism for extrapolating general principles from specific observations of a process. It has great potential to revolutionize quality improvement in healthcare organizations. SPC theory was developed by Walter Shewhart, a statistician of Bell Telephone Laboratories in the 1920s.
