The interest in multivariate statistical process control (MSPC) has increased as the industrial processes have become more complex. This paper presents an industrial process involving a plastic part in which, due to the number of correlated variables, the inversion of the covariance matrix becomes impossible, and the classical MSPC cannot be used to identify physical aspects that explain the causes of variation or to increase the knowledge about the process behaviour. In order to solve this

( Based on used dataset, it was possible to illustrated the principles of MSPC-PCA. This work intends to illustrated the implementation of MSPC-PCA in R step by step, to help the user community of R to be able to perform it.
