© 2006 Prentice Hall, Inc.S6 – 2  Variability is inherent in every process  Natural or common causes  Special or assignable causes  Provides a statistical signal when assignable causes are present  Detect and eliminate assignable causes of variation Statistical Process Control (SPC)

© 2006 Prentice Hall, Inc.S6 – 3 Natural Variations  Natural variations in the production process  These are to be expected  Output measures follow a probability distribution  For any distribution there is a measure of central tendency and dispersion

© 2006 Prentice Hall, Inc.S6 – 4 Assignable Variations  Variations that can be traced to a specific reason (machine wear, misadjusted equipment, fatigued or untrained workers)  The objective is to discover when assignable causes are present and eliminate them

© 2006 Prentice Hall, Inc.S6 – 5 Samples To measure the process, we take samples and analyze the sample statistics following these steps (a)Samples of the product, say five boxes of cereal taken off the filling machine line, vary from each other in weight Frequency Weight # ## # ## ## # ### #### ######### # Each of these represents one sample of five boxes of cereal Figure S6.1

© 2006 Prentice Hall, Inc.S6 – 6 Samples (b)After enough samples are taken from a stable process, they form a pattern called a distribution The solid line represents the distribution Frequency Weight Figure S6.1

© 2006 Prentice Hall, Inc.S6 – 7 Samples (c)There are many types of distributions, including the normal (bell-shaped) distribution, but distributions do differ in terms of central tendency (mean), standard deviation or variance, and shape Weight Central tendency Weight Variation Weight Shape Frequency Figure S6.1

© 2006 Prentice Hall, Inc.S6 – 8 Samples (d)If only natural causes of variation are present, the output of a process forms a distribution that is stable over time and is predictable Weight Time Frequency Prediction Figure S6.1

© 2006 Prentice Hall, Inc.S6 – 9 Samples (e)If assignable causes are present, the process output is not stable over time and is not predicable Weight Time Frequency Prediction?? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Figure S6.1

© 2006 Prentice Hall, Inc.S6 – 10 Control Charts Constructed from historical data, the purpose of control charts is to help distinguish between natural variations and variations due to assignable causes

© 2006 Prentice Hall, Inc.S6 – 11 Types of Data  Characteristics that can take any real value  May be in whole or in fractional numbers  Continuous random variables VariablesAttributes  Defect-related characteristics  Classify products as either good or bad or count defects  Categorical or discrete random variables

© 2006 Prentice Hall, Inc.S6 – 12 Control Charts for Variables  For variables that have continuous dimensions  Weight, speed, length, strength, etc.  x-charts are to control the central tendency of the process  R-charts are to control the dispersion of the process
