Abstract: Continuous improvement is an important aspect for companies to maintain their position in today's market, and process control can provide this capability for them. This study aims to facilitate implementing statistical process control (SPC) in less-developed industries. Due to reaching this goal, failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA) has been employed. FMEA helps the SPC implementation either in process selection or output analysis. Also, this integration has been applied in a car battery industry that is a less-developed industry as a case study. As a result, this paper provides an innovation to use engineering tools in some places which are not mature adequately.
