3 Costs of Quality A failure to satisfy a customer is considered a defect Defects cause cost Prevention costs Preventing defects before they happen Redesign the processes and products/services Continuous improvement by employees Suppliers involvement Appraisal costs Costs incurred to identify and assess performance problems
4 Costs of Quality Internal failure costs Costs resulting from defects that are discovered during the production of service/product Rework some aspect of product/service should be performed again Scrap the item is unfit for further processing External failure costs Costs that arise when a defect is discovered after the customer received the service or product
5 Total Quality Management A philosophy that stresses three principles for high levels of process performance and quality Customer satisfaction Figure 5.1 TQM Wheel
6 Total Quality Management Customer satisfaction (internal & external) Conformance to specifications (e.g. consistent quality, on-time delivery, delivery speed) Value (= Benefit Cost) Fitness for use (product features or service convenience) Support Psychological impressions (atmosphere, image, or aesthetics)
7 Total Quality Management Employee involvement Cultural change quality at the source Teams Problem-solving teams (aka Quality Circles) Small groups of supervisors and employees who identify, analyze, and solve process/quality problems Special-purpose teams Focus on an important issue such as new policy implementation, new technology implementation, etc. Self-managed teams Highest level of worker participation Members learn all the tasks involved in the operation Job rotation Managerial duties vacation scheduling, hiring, etc. Design processes
8 Total Quality Management Continuous improvement Kaizen ( 改 善 ) A philosophy of continually seeking ways to improve processes Not unique to quality applies to process improvement as well. Problem-solving tools (such as SPC statistical process control) should be given Make SPC a normal aspect of daily operations Build work teams and employee involvement Develop operator ownership in the process

Spread Variables: continuous scale (length of time, diameter of parts) Attributes: discrete scale (conformance to complex specification) Sampling Complete inspection When cost of failure matters Automated inspection Sampling When inspection cost is high and inspection affects the product or service Sample size Interval between successive samples Decision rules on when to take actions
16 Sampling Distributions 1. The sample mean is the sum of the observations divided by the total number of observations x n i 1 n x i where x i = observation of a quality characteristic (such as time) n = total number of observations x = mean
17 Sampling Distributions The range is the difference between the largest observation in a sample and the smallest. The standard deviation is the square root of the variance of a distribution. An estimate of the process standard deviation based on a sample is given by x i n 1 x 2 or x 2 i n 1 n x i 2 where σ = standard deviation of a sample

29 Control Charts Two types of error are possible with control charts A type I error occurs when a process is thought to be out of control when in fact it is in control A type II error occurs when a process is thought to be in control when it is actually out of statistical control These errors can be controlled by the choice of control limits
30 Control Charts Error control by the choice of the control limits A type I error occurs when a process is thought to be out of control when in fact it is in control A type II error occurs when a process is thought to be in control when it is actually out of statistical control Wider limits Larger type II error cost for not detecting a shift Smaller type I error < search cost for assignable causes Narrower limits Larger type I error search cost for assignable causes Smaller type II error < cost for not detecting a shift Average Time
31 SPC Methods Used for monitoring current process performance & for detecting any changes in the process Control charts for variables R-Chart, or range chart For monitoring the process variability where UCL R = D 4 R and LCL R = D 3 R R = average of several past R (range) values and the central line of the control chart D 3, D 4 = constants that provide three standard deviation (three-sigma) limits for the given sample size
32 Control Chart Factors TABLE 5.1 FACTORS FOR CALCULATING THREE-SIGMA LIMITS FOR THE x-chart AND R-CHART Size of Sample (n) Factor for UCL and LCL for x-chart (A 2 ) Factor for LCL for R-Chart (D 3 ) Factor for UCL for R-Chart (D 4 )
33 SPC Methods Control charts for variables x-chart UCL x = x + A 2 R and LCL x = x A 2 R where x = central line of the chart, which can be either the average of past sample means or a target value set for the process A 2 = constant to provide three-sigma limits for the sample mean
34 Steps for x- and R-Charts 1. Collect data 2. Compute the range 3. Use Table 5.1 to determine R-chart control limits 4. Plot the sample ranges. If all are in control, proceed to step 5. Otherwise, find the assignable causes, correct them, and return to step Calculate x for each sample
35 Steps for x- and R-Charts 6. Use Table 5.1 to determine x-chart control limits 7. Plot the sample means. If all are in control, the process is in statistical control. Continue to take samples and monitor the process. If any are out of control, find the assignable causes, correct them, and return to step 1. If no assignable causes are found, assume outof-control points represent common causes of variation and continue to monitor the process.
36 Using x- and R-Charts EXAMPLE 5.1 The management of West Allis Industries is concerned about the production of a special metal screw used by several of the company s largest customers. The diameter of the screw is critical to the customers. Data from five samples appear in the accompanying table. The sample size is 4. Is the process in statistical control? SOLUTION Step 1: For simplicity, we use only 5 samples. In practice, more than 20 samples would be desirable. The data are shown in the following table.
37 Using x- and R-Charts Data for the x- and R-Charts: Observation of Screw Diameter (in.) Sample Number Observation R x Average Step 2: Compute the range for each sample by subtracting the lowest value from the highest value. For example, in sample 1 the range is = in. Similarly, the ranges for samples 2, 3, 4, and 5 are , , , and in., respectively. As shown in the table, R =
38 Using x- and R-Charts Step 3: To construct the R-chart, select the appropriate constants from Table 5.1 for a sample size of 4. The control limits are UCL R = D 4 R = 2.282(0.0021) = in. LCL R = D 3 R = 0(0.0021) = 0 in.
39 Using x- and R-Charts Step 4: Plot the ranges on the R-chart, as shown in Figure None of the sample ranges falls outside the control limits so the process variability is in statistical control. If any of the sample ranges fall outside of the limits, or an unusual pattern appears, we would search for the causes of the excessive variability, correct them, and repeat step 1. Figure 5.10 Range Chart for the Metal Screw, Showing That the Process Variability Is in Control
40 Using x- and R-Charts Step 5: Compute the mean for each sample. For example, the mean for sample 1 is = in. Similarly, the means of samples 2, 3, 4, and 5 are , , , and in., respectively. As shown in the table, x =
41 Using x- and R-Charts Data for the x- and R-Charts: Observation of Screw Diameter (in.) Sample Number Observation R x Average
42 Using x- and R-Charts Step 6: Now construct the x-chart for the process average. The average screw diameter is in., and the average range is in., so use x = , R = , and A 2 from Table 5.1 for a sample size of 4 to construct the control limits: LCL x = x A 2 R = UCL x = x + A 2 R (0.0021) = in (0.0021) = in.
43 Using x- and R-Charts Step 7: Plot the sample means on the control chart, as shown in Figure The mean of sample 5 falls above the UCL, indicating that the process average is out of statistical control and that assignable causes must be explored, perhaps using a cause-and-effect diagram. Figure 5.11 The x-chart from the OM Explorer x and R-Chart Solver for the Metal Screw, Showing That Sample 5 is out of Control
44 Application 5.1 Webster Chemical Company produces mastics and caulking for the construction industry. The product is blended in large mixers and then pumped into tubes and capped. Webster is concerned whether the filling process for tubes of caulking is in statistical control. The process should be centered on 8 ounces per tube. Several samples of eight tubes are taken and each tube is weighed in ounces. Tube Number Sample Avg Range Avgs Q: Assuming that taking only 6 samples is sufficient, is the process in statistical control?

46 Application 5.1 Assuming that taking only 6 samples is sufficient, is the process in statistical control? Conclusion on process variability given R = 0.38 and n = 8: UCL R = D 4 R = LCL R = D 3 R = 1.864(0.38) = (0.38) = The range chart is out of control since sample 1 falls outside the UCL and sample 6 falls outside the LCL. This means that the x calculation is not necessary.

48 Application 5.1 Consider dropping sample 6 because of an inoperative scale, causing inaccurate measures. Tube Number Sample Avg Range Avgs What is the conclusion on process variability and process average?
49 Application 5.1 Now R = 0.45, x = 8.034, and n = 8 UCL R = D 4 R = 1.864(0.45) = LCL R = D 3 R = 0.136(0.45) = UCL x = x + A 2 R = (0.45) = LCL x = x A 2 R = (0.45) = The resulting control charts indicate that the process is actually in control.
50 Process Capability Process capability refers to the ability of the process to meet the design specification for the product or service Design specifications are often expressed as a nominal value (target) and a tolerance (allowance)
51 Process Capability Nominal value Process distribution Lower specification Upper specification Minutes (a) Process is capable Figure 5.14 The Relationship Between a Process Distribution and Upper and Lower Specifications
52 Process Capability Nominal value Process distribution Lower specification Upper specification Minutes (b) Process is not capable Figure 5.14 The Relationship Between a Process Distribution and Upper and Lower Specifications
53 Process Capability Nominal value Six sigma Four sigma Two sigma Lower specification Upper specification Mean Figure 5.15 Effects of Reducing Variability on Process Capability
54 Process Capability The process capability index measures how well a process is centered and whether the variability is acceptable x Lower specification C pk = Minimum of, 3σ Upper specification x 3σ where σ = standard deviation of the process distribution
55 Process Capability The process capability ratio tests whether process variability is the cause of problems C p = Upper specification Lower specification 6σ
56 Determining Process Capability Step 1. Collect data on the process output, and calculate the mean and the standard deviation of the process output distribution. Step 2. Use the data from the process distribution to compute process control charts, such as an x- and an R-chart.
57 Determining Process Capability Step 3. Take a series of at least 20 consecutive random samples from the process and plot the results on the control charts. If the sample statistics are within the control limits of the charts, the process is in statistical control. If the process is not in statistical control, look for assignable causes and eliminate them. Recalculate the mean and standard deviation of the process distribution and the control limits for the charts. Continue until the process is in statistical control.
58 Determining Process Capability Step 4. Calculate the process capability index. If the results are acceptable, the process is capable and document any changes made to the process; continue to monitor the output by using the control charts. If the results are unacceptable, calculate the process capability ratio. If the results are acceptable, the process variability is fine and management should focus on centering the process. If not, management should focus on reducing the variability in the process until it passes the test. As changes are made, recalculate the mean and standard deviation of the process distribution and the control limits for the charts and return to step 3(control chart).
59 Assessing Process Capability EXAMPLE 5.5 The intensive care unit lab process has an average turnaround time of 26.2 minutes and a standard deviation of 1.35 minutes The nominal value for this service is 25 minutes with an upper specification limit of 30 minutes and a lower specification limit of 20 minutes The administrator of the lab wants to have four-sigma performance for her lab Is the lab process capable of this level of performance?
60 SOLUTION Assessing Process Capability The administrator began by taking a quick check to see if the process is capable by applying the process capability index: Lower specification calculation = = (1.35) Upper specification calculation = = (1.35) C pk = Minimum of [1.53, 0.94] = 0.94 Since the target value for four-sigma performance is 1.33, the process capability index told her that the process was not capable. However, she did not know whether the problem was the variability of the process, the centering of the process, or both. The options available to improve the process depended on what is wrong.
61 Assessing Process Capability She next checked the process variability with the process capability ratio: C p = = (1.35) The process variability did not meet the four-sigma target of Consequently, she initiated a study to see where variability was introduced into the process. Two activities, report preparation and specimen slide preparation, were identified as having inconsistent procedures. These procedures were modified to provide consistent performance. New data were collected and the average turnaround was now 26.1 minutes with a standard deviation of 1.20 minutes.
62 Assessing Process Capability She now had the process variability at the four-sigma level of performance, as indicated by the process capability ratio: C p = = (1.20) However, the process capability index indicated additional problems to resolve: ( ) ( ) C pk = Minimum of, = (1.20) 3(1.20)
63 Application 5.4 Webster Chemical s nominal weight for filling tubes of caulk is 8.00 ounces ± 0.60 ounces. The target process capability ratio is 1.33, signifying that management wants 4-sigma performance. The current distribution of the filling process is centered on ounces with a standard deviation of ounces. Compute the process capability index and process capability ratio to assess whether the filling process is capable and set properly.
64 Application 5.4 a. Process capability index: x Lower specification C pk = Minimum of, 3σ Upper specification x 3σ = Minimum of = 1.135, = (0.192) 3(0.192) Recall that a capability index value of 1.0 implies that the firm is producing three-sigma quality (0.26% defects) and that the process is consistently producing outputs within specifications even though some defects are generated. The value of is far below the target of Therefore, we can conclude that the process is not capable. Furthermore, we do not know if the problem is centering or variability.
65 Application 5.4 b. Process capability ratio: C p = Upper specification Lower specification 6σ = = (0.192) Recall that if the C pk is greater than the critical value (1.33 for four-sigma quality) we can conclude that the process is capable. Since the C pk is less than the critical value, either the process average is close to one of the tolerance limits and is generating defective output, or the process variability is too large. The value of C p is less than the target for four-sigma quality. Therefore we conclude that the process variability must be addressed first, and then the process should be retested.
66 Quality Engineering Quality engineering is an approach originated by Genichi Taguchi that involves combining engineering and statistical methods to reduce costs and improve quality by optimizing product design and manufacturing processes. The quality loss function is based on the concept that a service or product that barely conforms to the specifications is more like a defective service or product than a perfect one.

68 International Standards ISO 9000:2000 addresses quality management by specifying what the firm does to fulfill the customer s quality requirements and applicable regulatory requirements while enhancing customer satisfaction and achieving continual improvement of its performance Companies must be certified by an external examiner Assures customers that the organization is performing as they say they are
69 International Standards ISO 14000:2004 documents a firm s environmental program by specifying what the firm does to minimize harmful effects on the environment caused by its activities The standards require companies to keep track of their raw materials use and their generation, treatment, and disposal of hazardous wastes Companies are inspected by outside, private auditors on a regular basis
70 International Standards External benefits are primarily increased sales opportunities ISO certification is preferred or required by many corporate buyers Internal benefits include improved profitability, improved marketing, reduced costs, and improved documentation and improvement of processes
