1. A quality analyst wants to construct a sample mean chart for controlling a packaging process. He knows from past experience that the process standard deviation is two ounces. Each day last week, he randomly selected four packages and weighed each. The data from that activity appears below. Weight Day Package 1 Package 2 Package 3 Package 4 Monday 23 22 23 24 Tuesday 23 21 19 21 Wednesday 20 19 20 21 Thursday 18 19 20 19 Friday 18 20 22 20 (a) Calculate all sample means and the mean of all sample means. (b) Calculate upper and lower control limits that allow σ 2 ± for natural variations. (c) Is this process in control? 2. An operator trainee is attempting to monitor a filling process that has an overall average of 705 cc. The average range is 17 cc. If you use a sample size of 6, what are the upper and lower control limits for the X-bar and R chart? 3. The defect rate for a product has historically been about 1.6%. What are the upper and lower control chart limits for a p-chart, if you wish to use a sample size of 100 and 3-sigma limits?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
