The management of the Diners Delight franchised restaurant chain is in the process of establishing quality- control charts for the time that its service people give to each customer. Management thinks the length of time that each customer is given should remain within certain limits to enhance service quality. A sample of six service people was selected, and the customer service they pro-vided was observed four times. The activities that the service people were performing were identified, and the time to service one customer was recorded.
a. Determine the upper and lower control limits for an X - chart and an R - chart with a sample size of 6.
b. After the control chart was established, a sample of six service personnel was observed, and the following customer service times in seconds were recorded: 180, 125, 110, 98, 156, and 190. Is corrective action called for?
