• Points which might be emphasized include: - Statistical process control measures the performance of a process, it does not help to identify a particular specimen produced as being “good” or “bad,” in or out of tolerance. - Statistical process control requires the collection and analysis of data - therefore it is not helpful when total production consists of a small number of units - While statistical process control can not help identify a “good” or “bad” unit, it can enable one to decide whether or not to accept an entire production lot. If a sample of a production lot contains more than a specified number of defective items, statistical process control can give us a basis for rejecting the entire lot. The issue of rejecting a lot which was actually good can be raised here, but is probably better left to later.
• Students should understand both the concepts of natural and assignable variation, and the nature of the efforts required to deal with them.
• This slide helps introduce different process outputs. It can also be used to illustrate natural and assignable variation.
• Once the categories are outlined, students may be asked to provide examples of items for which variable or attribute inspection might be appropriate. They might also be asked to provide examples of products for which both characteristics might be important at different stages of the production process.
• This slide introduces the difference between “natural” and “assignable” causes. The next several slides expand the discussion and introduce some of the statistical issues.
• It may be useful to spend some time explicitly discussing the difference between the sampling distribution of the means and the mean of the process population.
• Instructors may wish to point out the calculation of the standard deviation reflects the binomial distribution of the population
• There is always a focus on finding and eliminating problems. But control charts find any process changed, good or bad. The clever company will be looking at Operator 3 and 19 as they reported no errors during this period. The company should find out why (find the assignable cause) and see if there are skills or processes that can be applied to the other operators.
• Instructors may wish to point out the calculation of the standard deviation reflects the Poisson distribution of the population where the standard deviation equals the square root of the mean
• Ask the students to imagine a product, and consider what problem might cause each of the graph configurations illustrated.
• Ask the students to imagine a product, and consider what problem might cause each of the graph configurations illustrated.

• Ask the students to imagine a product, and consider what problem might cause each of the graph configurations illustrated.
• Here again it is useful to stress that acceptance sampling relates to the aggregate, not the individual unit. You might also discuss the decision as to whether one should take only a single sample, or whether multiple samples are required.
• Here again it is useful to stress that acceptance sampling relates to the aggregate, not the individual unit. You might also discuss the decision as to whether one should take only a single sample, or whether multiple samples are required.
• You can use this and the next several slides to begin a discussion of the “quality” of the acceptance sampling plans. You will find additional slides on “consumer’s” and “producer’s” risk to pursue the issue in a more formal manner in subsequent slides.
• Once the students understand the definition of these terms, have them consider how one would go about choosing values for AQL and LTPD.
• This slide introduces the concept of “producer’s” risk and “consumer’s” risk. The following slide explores these concepts graphically.
• This slide presents the OC curve for two possible acceptance sampling plans.
• It is probably important to stress that AOQ is the average percent defective , not the average percent acceptable.
• It is probably important to stress that AOQ is the average percent defective , not the average percent acceptable.
• This may be a good time to stress that an overall goal of statistical process control is to “do it better,” i.e., improve over time.
