Spring 2008 EMSE 182, 282, Professor Jim Harris, Control Chart Basics - 1 CONTROL CHART BASICS PRELIMINARIES Basic Vocabulary • Statistical Process Control (SPC) collection of problem solving tools useful in achieving process Ä stability and improving capability through reduced variation. tools include (The Magnificent Seven) Ä 1. Histogram 2. Check Sheets 3. Pareto Diagram 4. Cause and Effect Diagram 5. Defect Concentration Diagram 6. Scatter Diagram 7. Control Chart • A Process "In Control" one that has a stable mean and variance Ä one that operates with only chance variation Ä mathematically represented by Ä X , where { } are iid with ~ N(0,1) t t t t œ . 5% % %

Spring 2008 EMSE 182, 282, Professor Jim Harris, Control Chart Basics - 3 STATISTICAL BASIS FOR CONTROL CHARTS Basic Design • On Chart data plotted and connected with line segments Ä center line, upper and lower control limits (UCL and LCL), and Ä sometimes upper and lower warning limits plotted on chart. • Use process is out-of-control, look for assignable cause when Ä 1. any point plots outside the control limits outside 2. certain runs criteria are observed 3. any pattern in data is observed
