Unformatted text preview: mportant 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. Is the process capable of meeting the specifications? A. Yes B. No Yes, the process is capable because the natural tolerance limits are within the specifications.

A motorcycle manufacturer produces the parts for its vehicles in different locations and 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. Find the sigma level capability of the process. A. 3.45 B. 0.45 C. 1.24 D. 1.49 Zusl = (6 - 4.5)/(1.01/2.326) = 3.45 Zlsl = (3 - 4.5)/(1.01/2.326) = -3.45 Sigma level capability = min [|3.45|, |-3.45|] = 3.45 AACSB: Analytic Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Hard Learning Objective: 6 Topic: Process capability 1-1751 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 113.

A bank officer wishes to study how many customers write bad checks. To accomplish this, the officer randomly selects a weekly sample of 100 of checking accounts, and the number of who wrote bad checks was recorded. The numbers of customers who wrote bad checks in 20 consecutive weekly samples of 100 cardholders are, respectively, 1, 4, 9, 0, 4, 6, 0, 3, 8, 5, 3, 5, 2, 9, 4, 4, 3, 6, 4, 0 Find the appropriate center line.
