TUTORIAL 4 : CONTROL CHARTS FOR VARIABLES
1. Control charts for X and R are to be established on a certain dimension part, measured in millimeters. Data were collected in subgroup sizes of 6 and are given below. Determine the trial central line and control limits. Assume assignable causes and revise the central line and control limits. SUBGROUP NUMBER 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13

2. The following table gives the average and range in kilograms for tensile tests on an improved plastic cord. The subgroup size is 4. Determine the trial central line and control limits. If any points are out of control, assume assignable causes and calculate revised limits and central line. SUBGROUP NUMBER 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13

3. Table 1 shows the average and range dimension of rods (in millimeters) in subgroup size of 7. By using the data given in Table 1, (i) (ii) (iii) Determine the trial central line and control limits for X and R control chart. Construct the control charts and identify the out of control subgroup. Assume assignable causes and revise the central limit and control limits. Table 1: Average and Range Dimension of Rods (in millimeters). Subgroup No 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
