What is the probability that a light bulb of this type will last between 1000 and 1200 hours? Approximately 68%**Control Chart**a statistical tool to track data over a period of equally spaced time intervals or in some sequential order**Statistical Control**A random variable is in statistical control if it can be described by the same probability distribution when it is observed at successive points in time.**To Construct a Control Chart**• Draw a center horizontal line at . • Draw dashed lines (control limits) at and . • The values of and may be target values or may be computed from past data when the process was in control. • Plot the variable being measured using time on the horizontal axis.**Control Chart** 1 2 3 4 5 6 7**Control Chart** 1 2 3 4 5 6 7**Out-Of-Control Warning Signals**I One point beyond the 3 level II A run of nine consecutive points on one side of the center line at target III At least two of three consecutive points beyond the 2 level on the same side of the center line.**Is the Process in Control?** 1 2 3 4 5 6 7**Is the Process in Control?** 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13**Is the Process in Control?** 1 2 3 4 5 6 7**Is the Process in Control?** 1 2 3 4 5 6 7**Z Score**• The z value or z score tells the number of standard deviations the original measurement is from the mean. • The z value is in standard units.**Calculating z-scores**The amount of time it takes for a pizza delivery is approximately normally distributed with a mean of 25 minutes and a standard deviation of 2 minutes. Convert 21 minutes to a z score.**Calculating z-scores**Mean delivery time = 25 minutes Standard deviation = 2 minutes Convert 29.7 minutes to a z score.**Interpreting z-scores**Mean delivery time = 25 minutes Standard deviation = 2 minutes Interpret a z score of 1.6. The delivery time is 28.2 minutes.**Standard Normal Distribution:** = 0 = 1 -1 1 0 Values are converted to z scores where z =**Importance of the Standard Normal Distribution:**Standard Normal Distribution: 1 Any Normal Distribution: 0 Areas will be equal. 1 **Use of the Normal Probability Table**(Table 5) - Appendix II Entries give the probability that a standard normally distributed random variable will assume a value to the left of a given negative z-score.**Use of the Normal Probability Table**(Table 5a) - Appendix II Entries give the probability that a standard normally distributed random variable will assume a value to the left of a given positive z value.**To find the area to the left of z = 1.34**_____________________________________z … 0.03 0.04 0.05 ..… _____________________________________ . . 1.2 … .8907 .8925 .8944 …. 1.3 … .9082 .9099 .9115 …. 1.4 … .9236 .9251 .9265 …. .**Patterns for Finding Areas Under the Standard Normal Curve**To find the area to the left of a given negative z : Use Table 5 (Appendix II) directly. z 0**Patterns for Finding Areas Under the Standard Normal Curve**To find the area to the left of a given positive z : Use Table 5 a (Appendix II) directly. z 0**Patterns for Finding Areas Under the Standard Normal Curve**To find the area between z values on either side of zero: Subtract area to left of z1 from area to left of z2 . z2 0 z1**Patterns for Finding Areas Under the Standard Normal Curve**To find the area between z values on the same side of zero: Subtract area to left of z1 from area to left of z2 . z1 z2 0**Patterns for Finding Areas Under the Standard Normal Curve**To find the area to the right of a positive z value or to the right of a negative z value: Subtract from 1.0000 the area to the left of the given z.
