Ans: The first is the use of technical tools to identify and eliminate causes of quality

problems. These tools include statistical quality control, cause-and-effect diagrams, flow

charts, and Pareto analysis. In six-sigma programs the use of these tools is integrated

throughout the entire organizational system. The second aspect is people involvement. In

six-sigma all employees have the training to use technical tools and are responsible for

rooting out quality problems. Employees are given martial arts titles that reflect their skills

individuals that oversee the measuring, analyzing, process controlling, and improving. They

achieve this by acting as coaches, team leaders, and facilitators of the process of continuous

11. Describe why service organizations have tended to lag manufacturing organization in

the application of SQC.

Ans: The primary reason is that statistical quality control requires measurement, and it is

difficult to measure the quality of a service. Another issue that complicates quality

control in service organizations is that the service is often consumed during the

production process. The customer is often present during service delivery and there is

little time to improve quality.

Management wants to develop a p-chart using 3-sigma limits. What are the control

limits?

three-sigma control limits for a c-chart.

(b) A quality inspector just used the drive-up window and now checks her order. Her

cheeseburger has mustard on it although she ordered it without ketchup or mustard.

Three handfuls of ketchup and mustard packets are in the sack, but no napkins. And hot

coffee has spilled because the lid wasn’t properly sealed. Is the drive-up process in

control?

11. Compute the Cpk measure of process capability for the following machine and

interpret the findings. What value would you have obtained with the Cp measure?

Lower spec limit = 99.5 feet

Process = 99.8 feet

Process = .08 feet

Ans: Cpk = 0 .83 so the process is not capable, (CPK = min [(USL – μ)/3σ; (μ - LSL)/3σ];

[(100-99.8)/3*.08 = 0.833; (99.8 – 99.5)/3*.08= 1.25)

Cp = 1.04, implying a capable process (CP = (USL – LSL)/6σ = (100 – 99.5)/(6*.08)

= 1.04)
