Table 6E.9 presents 20 subgroups of five measurements on the critical dimension of a part produced by a machining process.
(a) Set up x and R control charts on this process. Verify that the process is in statistical control.
(b) Following the establishment of control charts in part (a) above, 10 new samples in Table 6E.10 were collected Plot the x and R values on the control chart you established in part (a) and draw conclusions.
(c) Suppose that the assignable cause responsible for the action signals generated in part (b) has been identified and adjustments made to the process to correct its performance. Plot the x and R values from the new subgroups shown in Table 6E.11 which were taken following the adjustment, against the control chart limits established in part (a). What are your conclusions?
