Statistical process control (SPC) has the capacity to offer a vital analytical tool to
adequately recognize if a process contains any defects (Chase, Jacobs, & Aquilano, 2005). It

control and its capacity to become more efficient. The control chart (Figure 1.1) contains the
measurements of the first four weeks which have been plotted (Figure 1.2) based on each day of

gas, the driver must drive to the closest gas station in order to obtain enough gas for the
automobile to be able to drive to work. Once the gas predicament is solved, the remaining flow is
practically free of potential bottlenecks. The control chart for driving to work does not show
major discrepancies except for the fourth week in which the driver had to obtain gas on the
second day (Tuesday). There will certainly be additional discrepancies in the upcoming months
due to expected seasonal factors which will slow down the process. These factors primarily
include weather-related issues. It is known that in winter, there is a rise in accidents, and as such,
