A manufacturing process produces 500 parts per hour A sample
A manufacturing process produces 500 parts per hour. A sample part is selected about every half hour, and after five parts are obtained, the average of these five measurements is plotted on an x control chart.
(a) Is this an appropriate sampling scheme if the assignable cause in the process results in an instantaneous upward shift in the mean that is of very short duration?
(b) If your answer is no, propose an alternative procedure.
