  WHY PROCESS CONTROL?   Process Control allows us to “prevent” defects from  happening rather than sort them out after their  occurrence.  Deming is a strong proponent of Continuous  Improvement through SPC.   Inspection is a verdict on a product for detection of  substandard product. Process Control is a verdict on  process for prevention of substandard product. Inspection: After the waste.
