The purpose of process control is to detect when natural causes of variation are present. False (Statistical Process Control (SPC), moderate) 3. A normal distribution is generally described by its two parameters: the mean and the range. False (Statistical Process Control (SPC), easy) 4. A process is said to be in statistical control when assignable causes are the only sources of variation. False (Statistical Process Control (SPC), moderate) 5. Mistakes stemming from workers' inadequate training represent an assignable cause of variation. True (Statistical Process Control (SPC), easy) 6. Averages of small samples, not individual measurements, are generally used in statistical process control. True (Statistical Process Control (SPC), moderate) 7. The Xbar chart indicates that a gain or loss of uniformity has occurred in dispersion of a production process. False (Statistical Process Control (SPC), moderate) 8. The Central Limit Theorem states that when the sample size increases, the distribution of the sample means will approach the normal distribution. True (Statistical Process Control (SPC), moderate) 9. In statistical process control, the range often substitutes for the standard deviation. True (Statistical Process Control (SPC), moderate) 10. If the process average is in control, then the process range must also be in control. False (Statistical Process Control (SPC), moderate) 11. A process range chart illustrates the amount of variation within the samples. True (Statistical Process Control (SPC), moderate) 12. Mean charts and range charts complement one another, one detecting shifts in process average, the other detecting shifts in process dispersion. True (Statistical Process Control (SPC), moderate) 13. Xbar charts are used when we are sampling attributes. False (Statistical Process Control (SPC), easy) 126 14. To measure the voltage of batteries, one would sample by attributes. False (Statistical Process Control (SPC), easy) 15. A pchart is appropriate to plot the number of typographic errors per page of text. False (Statistical Process Control (SPC), easy) 16. A cchart is appropriate to plot the number of flaws in a bolt of fabric. True (Statistical Process Control (SPC), easy) 17. The xbar chart, like the cchart, is based on the exponential distribution. False (Statistical Process Control (SPC), moderate) 18. A process that is in statistical control will always yield products that meet their design specifications. False (Process capability, moderate) 19. The higher the process capability ratio, the greater the likelihood that process will be within design specifications....
