S6 Statistical Process Control PowerPoint presentation to accompany Heizer and Render Operations Management, 10e Principles of Operations Management, 8e PowerPoint slides by Jeff Heyl © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall S6 - 1 Statistical Process Control The objective of a process control system is to provide a statistical signal when assignable causes of variation are present © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall S6 - 2 Statistical Process Control (SPC) Variability is inherent in every process Natural or common causes Special or assignable causes Provides a statistical signal when assignable causes are present Detect and eliminate assignable causes of variation © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall S6 - 3 Natural Variations Also called common causes Affect virtually all production processes Expected amount of variation Output measures follow a probability distribution For any distribution there is a measure of central tendency and dispersion If the distribution of outputs falls within acceptable limits, the process is said to be “in control” © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall S6 - 4 Assignable Variations Also called special causes of variation Generally this is some change in the process Variations that can be traced to a specific reason The objective is to discover when assignable causes are present Eliminate the bad causes Incorporate the good causes © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall S6 - 5 Samples (d) If only natural causes of variation are present, the output of a process forms a distribution that is stable over time and is predictable © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall Frequency To measure the process, we take samples and analyze the sample statistics following these steps Prediction Weight Figure S6.1 S6 - 6 Samples To measure the process, we take samples and analyze the sample statistics following these steps Frequency (e) If assignable causes are present, the process output is not stable over time and is not predicable ? ?? ?? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?? ?? ?

The mean of the sampling distribution (x) will be the same as the population mean m 2. The standard deviation of the sampling distribution (sx) will equal the population standard deviation (s) divided by the square root of the sample size, n © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall x=m sx = s n S6 - 11 Control Charts for Variables For variables that have continuous dimensions Weight, speed, length, strength, etc. x-charts are to control the central tendency of the process R-charts are to control the dispersion of the process These two charts must be used together © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall S6 - 12 Setting Chart Limits For x-Charts when we know s Upper control limit (UCL) = x + zsx Lower control limit (LCL) = x - zsx where x = mean of the sample means or a target value set for the process z = number of normal standard deviations sx = standard deviation of the sample means = s/ n s = population standard deviation n = sample size © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall S6 -
