The object of this paper is to discuss some of the issues in statistical process control (SPC), along with some methods to deal with them, so that the SPC users would get the most benefit out of their quality control efforts. An alternative approach to process control, i.e., process adjustment, which might be preferred over process control in some situations, will also be briefly discussed.
