Unformatted text preview: acceptable/unacceptable Measurement is typically counting defectives Charts may measure Percent defective (p-chart) Number of defects (c-chart) 4 Control Limits for p-Charts Population will be a binomial distribution, but applying the Central Limit Theorem allows us to assume a normal distribution for the sample statistics UCL p = p + z p ^ LCL p = p - z p ^ p = mean fraction defective in the sample z = number of standard deviations p = standard deviation of the sampling distribution n = sample size ^ p (1 -p ) n p = ^...
