While many books on quality espouse the Taguchi loss function, they do not examine its impact on statistical quality control (SQC). But using the Taguchi loss function sheds new light on questions relating to SQC and calls for some changes. This book covers SQC in a way that conforms with the need to minimize loss. Subjects often not covered elsewhere include: (i) measurements, (ii) determining how many points to sample to obtain reliable control charts (for which purpose a new graphic tool, diffidence charts, is introduced), (iii) the connection between process capability and tolerances, (iv) how to adapt Deming's kp rule to quadratic loss, (v) how to adjust without tampering. We also discuss the efficiency of various statistics and how control chart constants are derived.

It has recently become apparent that "quality" is quickly becoming the single most important factor for success and growth in business. Companies achieving higher quality in their products through effective quality improvement programs enjoy a significant competitive advantage. It is, therefore, essential for engineers responsible for design, development, and manufacture of products to understand the concepts and techniques of quality control. Statistical Quality Control imparts that understanding. Covering the basic steps in quality assurance and control methodologies, this unique text not only sequences, but also integrates the various techniques presented. The chapters, which include Optimum Process Means and Process Setting, are arranged in logical order. This advanced treatment makes Statistical Quality Control an ideal graduate text as well as a reference for practitioners working in design and quality control.

"This book is a desk reference and instructional aid for individuals involved with, or preparing for involvement with, Six Sigma project teams. As Six Sigma team members, Green Belts help select, collect data for, and assist with the interpretation of a variety of statistical or quantitative tools within the context of the Six Sigma methodology. The second in a four-book series geared specifically for these Green Belt activities, this book provides a thorough discussion of statistical quality control (SQC) tools. These tools are introduced and discussed from the perspective of application rather than theoretical development. From this perspective, readers are taught to consider the SQC tools as statistical "alarm bells" that send signals when there are one or more problems with a particular process." "Guidance is also given on the use of Minitab and JMP in doing these various SQC applications. In addition, examples and sample problems from all industries appear throughout the book to aid a Green Belt's comprehension of the material."--BOOK JACKET.

In the 1920's, Walter Shewhart visualized that the marriage of statistical methods and manufacturing processes would produce reliable and consistent quality products. Shewhart (1931) conceived the idea of statistical process control (SPC) and developed the well-known and appropriately named Shewhart control chart. However, from the 1930s to the 1990s, literature on SPC schemes have been "captured" by the Shewhart paradigm of normality, independence and homogeneous variance. When in fact, the problems facing today's industries are more inconsistent than those faced by Shewhart in the 1930s. As a result of the advances in machine and sensor technology, process data can often be collected on-line. In this situation, the process observations that result from data collection activities will frequently not be serially independent, but autocorrelated. Autocorrelation has a significant impact on a control chart: the process may not exhibit a state of statistical control when in fact, it is in control. As the prevalence of this type of data is expected to increase in industry (Hahn 1989), so does the need to control and monitor it. Equivalently, literature has reflected this trend, and research in the area of SPC with autocorrelated data continues so that effective methods of handling correlated data are available. This type of data regularly occurs in the chemical and process industries, and is pervasive in computer-integrated manufacturing environments, clinical laboratory settings and in the majority of SPC applications across various manufacturing and service industries (Alwan 1991).

Provides the methods and tools for the manufacturing manager to improve quality, increase productivity, and enhance the competitive position of the manufacturing line. Proposes potentially controversial methods of performance appraisals, operation certification, line qualification, vendor certification, and just-in-time manufacturing. The organization of this book takes the reader logically from the basics of statistics through the fundamentals of statistical quality control, to the manufacturing applications and accompanying manufacturing strategies of statistical quality control (SQC). This book is the first written specifically for manufacturing management. Examples throughout the book demonstrate how the manufacturing manager can successfully implement SQC in the manufacturing process. Real-life manufacturing situations described illustrate situations managers are likely to find in their own line.

The 10th International Workshop on Intelligent Statistical Quality Control took place in Seattle, USA, Aug 18-20, 2010. It was hosted by Professor C. M. Mastrangelo, Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, University of Washington, Seattle. The workshop was jointly organized by Professors H. J. Lenz, C. M. Mastrangelo, W. Schmid and P.T. Wilrich. The twenty-seven papers in this volume were carefully selected by the scientific program committee, reviewed by its members, revised by the authors and, finally, adapted for this volume by the editors. The book is divided into two parts: Part I "On-line Control" covers fields like control charting, monitoring and surveillance as well as acceptance sampling. Part II "Off-line Control" is devoted to experimental design, process capability analysis and data quality. The purpose of the book is on the one hand to provide insights into important new developments in the area of statistical quality control – especially surveillance and monitoring – and on the other hand to critically discuss methods used in on-line and off-line statistical quality control.
