Prediction Frequency Time Weight Samples To measure the process, we take samples and analyze the sample statistics following these steps (e) If assignable causes are present, the process output is not stable over time and is not predicable Figure S6.1**Control Charts**Constructed from historical data, the purpose of control charts is to help distinguish between natural variations and variations due to assignable causes**Types of Data**Variables Attributes • Characteristics that can take any real value • May be in whole or in fractional numbers • Continuous random variables • Defect-related characteristics • Classify products as either good or bad or count defects • Categorical or discrete random variables**The mean of the sampling distribution (x) will be the same**as the population mean m x = m s n The standard deviation of the sampling distribution (sx) will equal the population standard deviation (s) divided by the square root of the sample size, n sx = Central Limit Theorem Regardless of the distribution of the population, the distribution of sample means drawn from the population will tend to follow a normal curve**(a) In statistical control and capable of producing within**control limits Frequency Upper control limit Lower control limit (b) In statistical control but not capable of producing within control limits (c) Out of control Size (weight, length, speed, etc.) Process Control Figure S6.2**Three population distributions**Mean of sample means = x Beta Standard deviation of the sample means Normal = sx = Uniform s n | | | | | | | -3sx -2sx -1sx x +1sx +2sx +3sx 95.45% fall within ± 2sx 99.73% of all x fall within ± 3sx Population and Sampling Distributions Distribution of sample means Figure S6.3**Sampling distribution of means**Process distribution of means x = m (mean) Sampling Distribution Figure S6.4**Steps In Creating Control Charts**Take samples from the population and compute the appropriate sample statistic Use the sample statistic to calculate control limits and draw the control chart Plot sample results on the control chart and determine the state of the process (in or out of control) Investigate possible assignable causes and take any indicated actions Continue sampling from the process and reset the control limits when necessary**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 • These two charts must be used together Control Charts for Variables**For x-Charts when we know s**Upper control limit (UCL) = x + zsx Lower control limit (LCL) = x -
