transports them to it plant for assembly. In order to keep the assembly operations running
efficiently, it is vital that all parts be within specification limits. One important part used in
the assembly is the engine camshaft and one important quality characteristic is the case
hardness depth. Specifications state that the hardness depth must be between 3.0 mm and 6.0
mm. To investigate the process, the quality control engineer selected 25 daily subgroups of n
= 5 and measured the hardness depth. The process yielded a mean of the means
= 4.50 and
an average range = 1.01.
