Abstract

Statistics are extremely important tools in the operation of press shops, providing numerical process analysis capabilities. The most common use of statistics in the press shop is statistical process control (SPC) that uses statistical techniques such as control charts to analyze a process or its output to enable appropriate actions to be taken to achieve and maintain a state of statistical control. This article discusses the role of statistics in sheet metal forming operations, both in terms of SPC techniques, such as control charting, statistical deformation control, and experimental design, including single-variable studies, multivariable studies, and Taguchi experiments.
