What is the point of these sports?
Have you ever… Shot a rifle? Played darts? Played basketball? Shot a round of golf? What is the point of these sports? What makes them hard?

Have you ever… Who is the better shot? Shot a rifle? Played darts?
Emmett Jake Who is the better shot? Shot a rifle? Played darts? Shot a round of golf? Played basketball?

Discussion What do you measure in your process?
Why do those measures matter? Are those measures consistently the same? Why not?

Variability 8 7 10 9 Deviation = distance between observations and the mean (or average) Emmett Observations 10 9 8 7 averages 8.4 Deviations = 1.6 9 – 8.4 = 0.6 8 – 8.4 = -0.4 7 – 8.4 = -1.4 0.0 Jake

Variability Deviation = distance between observations and the mean (or average) Emmett Observations 7 6 averages 6.6 Deviations 7 – 6.6 = 0.4 6 – 6.6 = -0.6 0.0 7 6 Jake

Variability 8 7 10 9 Variance = average distance between observations and the mean squared Emmett Observations 10 9 8 7 averages 8.4 Deviations = 1.6 9 – 8.4 = 0.6 8 – 8.4 = -0.4 7 – 8.4 = -1.4 0.0 Squared Deviations 2.56 0.36 0.16 1.96 1.0 Jake Variance

But what good is a standard deviation
Variability Standard deviation = square root of variance Emmett Variance Standard Deviation Emmett 1.0 Jake 0.24 Jake But what good is a standard deviation ?

Variability The world tends to be bell-shaped Even very rare
outcomes are possible (probability > 0) Fewer in the “tails” (lower) (upper) Most outcomes occur in the middle

Variability Here is why:
Even outcomes that are equally likely (like dice), when you add them up, become bell shaped

“Normal” bell shaped curve
Add up about 30 of most things and you start to be “normal” Normal distributions are divide up into 3 standard deviations on each side of the mean Once your that, you know a lot about what is going on ? And that is what a standard deviation is good for

Usual or unusual? One observation falls outside 3 standard deviations?
One observation falls in zone A? 2 out of 3 observations fall in one zone A? 2 out of 3 observations fall in one zone B or beyond? 4 out of 5 observations fall in one zone B or beyond? 8 consecutive points above the mean, rising, or falling? X X XX X X X X XX

SPC uses samples to identify that special causes have occurred
Causes of Variability Common Causes: Random variation (usual) No pattern Inherent in process adjusting the process increases its variation Special Causes Non-random variation (unusual) May exhibit a pattern Assignable, explainable, controllable adjusting the process decreases its variation SPC uses samples to identify that special causes have occurred

Limits Process and Control limits: Specification limits: Statistical
Process limits are used for individual items Control limits are used with averages Limits = μ ± 3σ Define usual (common causes) & unusual (special causes) Specification limits: Engineered Limits = target ± tolerance Define acceptable & unacceptable

Process vs. control limits
Distribution of averages Control limits Specification limits Variance of averages < variance of individual items Distribution of individuals Process limits

Usual v. Unusual, Acceptable v. Defective
μ Target

Cpk measures “Process Capability”
More about limits Good quality: defects are rare (Cpk>1) μ target Poor quality: defects are common (Cpk<1) μ target Cpk measures “Process Capability” If process limits and control limits are at the same location, Cpk = 1. Cpk ≥ 2 is exceptional.

Process capability Good quality: defects are rare (Cpk>1)
Poor quality: defects are common (Cpk<1) = USL – x 24 – 20 3(2) = = .667 Cpk = min = x - LSL 20 – 15 3(2) = = .833 = = 3σ = (UPL – x, or x – LPL)

Going out of control When an observation is unusual, what can we conclude? μ2 The mean has changed X μ1

Going out of control When an observation is unusual, what can we conclude? The standard deviation has changed σ2 σ1 X

Setting up control charts: Calculating the limits
Sample n items (often 4 or 5) Find the mean of the sample (x-bar) Find the range of the sample R Plot on the chart Plot the R on an R chart Repeat steps 1-5 thirty times Average the ’s to create (x-bar-bar) Average the R’s to create (R-bar)

Setting up control charts: Calculating the limits
Find A2 on table (A2 times R estimates 3σ) Use formula to find limits for x-bar chart: Use formulas to find limits for R chart:

Interpreting charts Observations outside control limits indicate the process is probably “out-of-control” Significant patterns in the observations indicate the process is probably “out-of-control” Random causes will on rare occasions indicate the process is probably “out-of-control” when it actually is not

Show real time examples of charts here
Interpreting charts In the excel spreadsheet, look for these shifts: A B C D Show real time examples of charts here

Lots of other charts exist
P chart C charts U charts Cusum & EWMA For yes-no questions like “is it defective?” (binomial data) For counting number defects where most items have ≥1 defects (eg. custom built houses) Average count per unit (similar to C chart) Advanced charts “V” shaped or Curved control limits (calculate them by hiring a statistician)

Selecting rational samples
Chosen so that variation within the sample is considered to be from common causes Special causes should only occur between samples Special causes to avoid in sampling passage of time workers shifts machines Locations

Chart advice Larger samples are more accurate
Sample costs money, but so does being out-of-control Don’t convert measurement data to “yes/no” binomial data (X’s to P’s) Not all out-of control points are bad Don’t combine data (or mix product) Have out-of-control procedures (what do I do now?) Actual production volume matters (Average Run Length)
