Quality Control Problems 1. A firm wishes to set up Mean and Range charts for lathes producing steel shafts of diameter 2 inches. Five samples are taken, each of size 4, and the diameters are measured. Sample Observation 1 2 3 4 1 1.96 2.01 2.04 1.97 2 2.05 2.02 1.93 1.99 3 1.98 1.95 2.02 2.05 4 2.03 1.98 1.97 2.00 5 1.9 2.01 1.97 2.04 a. Find the appropriate control limits. b. After the control limits have been established, a sample of size 4 is taken and inspected. The diameters are as follows: 1.92, 1.97, 2.08, 1.95 inches. Does the process appear to be in control? 2. A process producing TV tubes has an average yield of 90%, based on 20 samples. Samples taken for inspection have a size of 25. a. Set up 2 sigma control limits for the mean proportion defective. b. How can we obtain tighter control limits?

Is the process in control? What action, if any, should be taken? 3. An apparel manufacturer wishes to set up 3 sigma control limits for the shirt making process. Each shirt has an average of 1 defect. What are the appropriate control limits for the process? 4. A semiconductor is designed to have a life of 1000 50 hours. The manufacturing process produces semiconductors with a mean life of 980 hours and a standard deviation of life of 15 hours. Is the process capable of meeting design specifications? What are your recommendations?...
