Gain a real-world perspective on statistical methods used in quality control applications.

Those new to quality control will benefit from the detailed section on data collection. Filled with illustrations, this book gives you a behind-the-scenes look at quality control tasks performed with and without the SQC and ADX menu systems. Also featured are strategies for designing and analyzing experiments, creating sampling plans, analyzing gage repeatability and reproducibility studies, and performing tolerance and linear calibration analysis with SAS software.
