1. Statistical Process Control

2. Overview • Variation • Control charts • R charts • X-bar charts • P charts

3. Statistical Quality Control (SPC) • Measures performance of a process • Primary tool - statistics • Involves collecting, organizing, & interpreting data • Used to: • Control the process as products are produced • Inspect samples of finished products

4. Bottling Company • Machine automatically fills a 20 oz bottle. • Problem with filling too much? Problems with filling to little? • So Monday the average is 20.2 ounces. • Tuesday the average is 19.6 ounces. • Is this normal? Do we need to be concerned? • Wed is 19.4 ounces.

5. Natural Variation • Machine can not fill every bottle exactly the same amount – close but not exactly.

6. Assignable variation • A cause for part of the variation

7. SPC • Objective: provide statistical signal when assignable causes of variation are present

8. Control Chart Types Continuous Numerical Data Categorical or Discrete Numerical Data Control Charts Variables Attributes Charts Charts R P C X Chart Chart Chart Chart

9. Measuring quality • Characteristics for which you focus on defects • Classify products as either ‘good’ or ‘bad’, or count # defects • e.g., radio works or not • Categorical or discrete random variables Attributes Variables • Characteristics that you measure, e.g., weight, length • May be in whole or in fractional numbers • Continuous random variables

10. Control Chart Purposes • Show changes in data pattern • e.g., trends • Make corrections before process is out of control • Show causes of changes in data • Assignable causes • Data outside control limits or trend in data • Natural causes • Random variations around average

12. Steps to Follow When Using Control Charts TO SET CONTROL CHART LIMITS • Collect 20-25 samples of n=4 or n=5 a stable process • compute the mean of each sample. • Calculate control limits • Compute the overall means • Calculate the upper and lower control limits.

13. Steps to Follow When Using Control Charts - continued TO MONITOR PROCESS USING THE CONTROL CHARTS: • Collect and graph data • Graph the sample means and ranges on their respective control charts • Determine whether they fall outside the acceptable limits. • Investigate points or patterns that indicate the process is out of control. Assign causes for the variations. • Collect additional samples and revalidate the control limits.

14. Control Charts for Variables Glacier Bottling • Management at Glacier Bottling is concerned about their filling process. In particular, they want to know whether or not the machines are really filling the bottles with 16 ounces. • Create an Xbar chart that will be used to monitor the process. • Collected data for 25 days. Each day, pulled 4 bottles from the filling line and measured the amount in the bottle.

15. Glacier Bottling Remember: There are 25 samples of size 4 to calculate the control limits. We are doing the first 5 right now…

16. Setting Control Limits for R chart

17. R Chart • Monitors variability in process • Variables control chart • Interval or ratio scaled numerical data • Shows sample ranges over time • Difference between smallest & largest values in inspection sample
