**Quality Assurance (Quality Control)**

2
**Phases of Quality Assurance**

Acceptance sampling Process control Continuous improvement Inspection before/after production Corrective action during Quality built into the process The least progressive The most

3
**Inspection How Much/How Often Where/When Centralized vs. On-site**

Inputs Transformation Outputs Acceptance sampling Process control

4
**Inspection Costs Cost Total Cost Cost of inspection Cost of passing**

defectives Optimal Amount of Inspection

5
**Where to Inspect in the Process**

Raw materials and purchased parts Finished products Before a costly operation Before an irreversible process Before a covering process

6
**Examples of Inspection Points**

7
**Statistical Process Control**

The Control Process Define Measure Compare to a standard Evaluate Take corrective action Evaluate corrective action

8
**Statistical Process Control**

Variations and Control Random variation: Natural variations in the output of process, created by countless minor factors Assignable variation: A variation whose source can be identified

9
**Sampling Distribution**

Process distribution Mean

10
**Normal Distribution Mean -3s -2s +2s +3s 95.5% 99.7%**

s = Standard deviation

11
**Control Limits (Type I Error)**

Mean LCL UCL a/2 a = Probability of Type I error

12
**Control Limits Sampling distribution Process distribution Mean**

Lower control limit Upper control limit

13
**Mean Charts Two approaches:**

If the process standard deviation (s) is available (x If the process standard deviation is not available (use sample range to approximate the process variability)

14
**Mean charts (SD of process available)**

Upper control limit (UCL) = average sample mean + z (S.D. of sample mean) Lower control limit (LCL) = average sample mean - z (S.D. of sample mean)

15
**Mean charts (SD of process not available)**

UCL = average of sample mean + A2 (average of sample range) LCL = average of sample mean - A2 (average of sample range) A2 is a parameter depending on the sample size and is obtainable from table.

16
Example Means of sample taken from a process for making aluminum rods is 2 cm and the SD of the process is 0.1cm (assuming a normal distribution). Find the 3-sigma (99.7%) control limits assuming sample size of 16 are taken.

17
**Example (solution) x = SD of sample mean distribution z = 3**

= SD of process / (sample size) = 0.1 / (16) = 0.025 z = 3 UCL = 2 + 3(0.025) = 2.075 LCL = = 1.925

18
Example(p.427) Twenty samples of size 8 have been taken from a process. The average sample range of the 20 samples is 0.016cm and the average mean is 3cm. Determine the 3-sigma control limits.

19
**Example Average sample mean = 3cm Average sample range = 0.016cm**

Sample size = 8 A2 = 0.37 (From Table 9-2) UCL = (0.016) = 3.006 LCL = (0.016) = 2.994

24
**Control Chart for Attributes**

p-Chart - Control chart used to monitor the proportion of defectives in a process c-Chart - Control chart used to monitor the number of defects per unit

25
**Use of p-Charts When observations can be placed into two categories.**

Good or bad Pass or fail Operate or do not operate When the data consists of multiple samples of several observations each

26
p-chart The center line is the average fraction (defective) p in the population if p is known, or it can be estimated from samples is it is unknown. p = SD of sample distribution = {p(1-p)/n} UCLp = p + zp LCLp = p - zp

27
Example (p.431) The following table indicates the defective items in 20 samples, each of size 100. Construct a control chart that will describe 95.5% of the chance variations of the process

28
Example The following table indicates the defective items in 20 samples, each of size 100. Construct a control chart that will describe 95.5% of the chance variations of the process No. of defective items

29
Example (solution) Population mean not available, to be estimated from sample mean Total No. of defective items = 220 Estimate sample mean = 220/{20(100)}=.11 SD of sample = {.11(1-.11)/100}= 0.03 z = 2 (2-sigma) UCLp = (.03) = 0.17 LCLp = (.03) = 0.05 Thus a control chart can be plotted (p.431)

30
Use of c-Charts Use only when the number of occurrences per unit of measure can be counted; nonoccurrences cannot be counted. Scratches, chips, dents, or errors per item Cracks or faults per unit of distance Calls, complaints, failures per unit of time

31
**Process Capability Process variability matches specifications**

Lower Specification Upper Specification Process variability matches specifications Lower Specification Upper Specification Process variability well within specifications Lower Specification Upper Specification Process variability exceeds specifications
