Why Learn Control Charts and Process Capability?

Control charts allow us to evaluate the performance of a process (such as the performance of a CubeSat under certain test conditions) and detect any problems that might arise. While some control charts may not be directly applicable in an academic space payload environment, the statistical basis and approaches taught in this course can be used to develop similar methods that are relevant to such projects.
