Possible causes of this value should be investigated. In addition, the next four highest points all occur on a Friday. (b) The snowstorm would explain why the proportion of late arrivals was so high on Day 13. (c) The results would have been the same. The proportion of late arrivals on Day 13 would still have been above the UCL . 17.4 (a) (b) Although none of the points are outside the control limits, there is evidence of a pattern over time, since the first eight points are all below the center line and most of the later points are above the center line. Thus, the special causes that might be contributing to this pattern should be investigated before any change in the system of operation is contemplated.
Solutions to End-of-Section and Chapter Review Problems 222 17.5 (a) n = 102.5667, p = 0.308742, LCL = 0.171895, UCL = 0.44559 Note: The UCL and LCL are represented by jagged lines which are the control limits for each day depending on the sample size of that day. (b) Yes, the process gives an out of control signal because the proportions fall outside of the control limits on four of the 30 days.
