FORUM 2 STATISTICAL PROCESS CONTROL 2 Statistics is a branch of mathematics dealing with data collection, organization, analysis, interpretation and presentation. Statistics allows the user to develop upper and lower limits around the mean of a dataset. These limits are generally 3 standard deviations. Managing of three main functions can produce significant savings in operational cost and improved efficiency: production, maintenance and quality. According to Bahria, Chelbi, Bouchriha, and Dridi (2018), using statistics in the process control helps the planning and controlling these functions is critical in realizing savings. Understanding what is happening and correcting it if it needs correcting is interesting to me. Using mathematical models allows for a more consistent, repeatable and increased quality of a product or service. It also allows us a point of reference when making adjustments in optimization to ensure quality. Comparison The articles are very interesting in the point of view that all business sectors are not using mathematical models and statistics. This reminds me of the movie “Moneyball”. A must watch movie if you feel statistics is not for real business. According to Aparisi, Epprecht and Mosquera (2018), user-friendly software has been developed for optimizing the design parameters of the charts and sample rates can be determined by average run lengths. As most business people use Microsoft excel to do most of their work in data. It may be recommended that real statistic work can be easier performed by other math programs. Mathworks with Matlab software when properly trained in statistics is much easier to use then excel. This is based solely on my experience in statistical work. According to Abdul Halim Lim, He, Arshed and Antony (2017), global competition in current businesses contributes to the growing popularity of continuous improvement practices. The best way to understand the improvement is actually generating quality product at reduced

FORUM 2 STATISTICAL PROCESS CONTROL 3 cost is the measurement and quantification of the data. The use of statistical process control should be used in all types of business and not just manufacturing. Also, using statistical process control will allow managers to see when the mean starts to move overtime to one of the limits. Assigning a variable to why the mean is moving can help the manager increase efficiency or quality. Article Summary The article summary is based on “Critical observations on the statistical process control implementation in the UK food industry: A survey.” The authors look at food industry and implementation of statistical control and the reasons why it has not been widely adopted by the food industry in the UK. The article is written in logical order of why and how followed by their findings and conclusions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
