© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S3 - 3 Thinking Challenge In the mid-1980’s, most firms adjusted the process if output varied by ± 3  from average (2,700 defects per million products). In trouble, Motorola decided to use ± 6 . This meant no more than 2 defects per billion products. Should Motorola have followed industry practice, used 6 , or some other standard? © 1995 Corel Corp. AloneGroupClass

© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S3 - 4 Statistical Quality Control (SQC) n Uses mathematics (i.e., statistics) n Involves collecting, organizing, & interpreting data n Objective: Regulate product quality n Used to l Control the process as products are produced l Inspect samples of finished products

© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S3 - 5 Types of Statistical Quality Control

© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S3 - 6 n Characteristics for which you focus on defects n Classify products as either ‘good’ or ‘bad’, or count # defects l e.g., radio works or not n Categorical or discrete random variables Attributes Quality Characteristics n Characteristics that you measure l e.g., weight, length n May be whole number or fractional n Continuous random variables Variables

S3 - 7 Statistical Process Control (SPC) n Statistical technique used to ensure process is making product to standard n All process are subject to variability l Natural causes: Random variations l Assignable causes: Correctable problems s Machine wear, unskilled workers, poor mat’l n Objective: Identify assignable causes n Uses process control charts

© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S3 - 9 Control Chart Purposes n Show changes in data pattern l e.g., trends s Make corrections before process is out of control n Show causes of changes in data l Assignable causes s Data outside control limits or trend in data l Natural causes s Random variations around average

© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S3 - 10 Theoretical Basis of Control Charts As sample size gets large enough (  30)... sampling distribution becomes almost normal regardless of population distribution. Central Limit Theorem

© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S3 - 11 Theoretical Basis of Control Charts Properties of normal distribution 99.7% of all  X fall within ± 3   X

© 1997 Prentice-Hall, Inc. S3 - 12 Theoretical Basis of Control Charts 95.5% of all  X fall within ± 2   X Properties of normal distribution 99.7% of all  X fall within ± 3   X

S3 - 15 R Chart n Type of variables control chart l Interval or ratio scaled numerical data n Shows sample ranges over time l Difference between smallest & largest values in inspection sample n Monitors variability in process n Example: Weigh samples of coffee & compute ranges of samples; Plot

S3 - 33 What Is Acceptance Sampling? n Form of quality testing used for incoming materials or finished goods l e.g., purchased material & components n Procedure l Take one or more samples at random from a lot (shipment) of items l Inspect each of the items in the sample l Decide whether to reject the whole lot based on the inspection results
