Unformatted text preview: 4) Quality control activities that take place during the design of the product or process and before manufacture are called _____________ quality control. 5) A response y is known to be governed by the relationship y = ax + b where x is a random variable with a mean of 1 and standard deviation of 1. The losses L due to deviation of y from its target m are given by L ( y )= k ( y-m ) 2 Which settings of a and b among those listed will give the lowest value of average quality loss? a) a =2, b = m b) a =2, b = m-2 c) a =1, b = m d) a =1, b = m-1...
