X-bar and R Control Charts
Attribute Data
Data that is discrete
 Discrete data is based on “counts.”
п‚· Assumes integer values
п‚·
пЃ‡ Number
of defective units
 Number of customers who are “very satisfied”
пЃ‡ Number of defects
Variables Data
X-bar and R chart is used to monitor mean
and variance of a process when quality
characteristic is continuous.
п‚· Continuous values (variables data) can
theoretically assume an infinite number of
values in some interval.

X-bar and R Chart
X-bar chart monitors the process mean by
using the means of small samples taken
frequently
п‚· R chart monitors the process variation by
using the sample ranges as the measure of
variability

Underlying Distributions
п‚·
When constructing an X-bar chart, we
actually have two distributions to consider:
п‚·
The distribution of the sample means X , and
п‚·
The process distribution, the distribution of the
quality characteristic itself, X.
п‚·
The distribution of
averages.
п‚·
The distribution of X is a distribution of ???
X
is a distribution of
Underlying Distributions
п‚·
These distributions have the same mean
Mean of X пЂЅ Mean of X
Their variances (or standard deviations) are
different.
п‚· Which distribution has the bigger variance?
п‚·
п‚·
п‚·
Would you expect more variability among
averages or among individual values?
The variability among the individual values is
???
Underlying Distributions
п‚·
The standard deviation among the sample
means is smaller by a factor of 1

Control Limits for X-bar Chart

Since we are plotting sample means on the Xbar chart, the control limits are based on the
distribution of the sample means.

п‚·
A company that makes soft drinks wants to
monitor the sugar content of its drinks.
The sugar content (X) is normally
distributed, but the means and variances
are unknown.
The target sugar level for one of its drinks
is 15 grams.
The lower spec limit is 10 grams.
The upper spec limit is 20 grams.
Example of X-bar Chart
The company wants to know how much sugar
on average is being put into this soft drink and
how much variability there is in the sugar
content in each bottle.
п‚· The company also wants to know if the mean
sugar content is on target.
п‚· Lastly, the company wants to know the
percentage of drinks that are too sweet and
the percentage that are not sweet enough.
(Next section)
п‚·
Example of X-bar Chart
п‚·
To obtain this information, the company
decides to sample 3 bottles of the soft drink at
3 different time each day:
10 A.M,
п‚· 1:00 P.M. and
п‚· 4:00 P.M.
п‚·
The company will use this data to construct an
X-bar and R chart. (In practice, you need 2530 samples to construct the control limits.)
п‚· For the past two days, the following data were
collected:

Interpretation of X-bar Chart
п‚·
п‚·
п‚·
The X-bar chart is in control because ????
This means that the only source of
variation among the sample mean is due
to random causes.
The process mean is therefore stable and
predictable and, consequently, we can
estimate it.
Interpretation of X-bar Chart
п‚·
п‚·
Our best estimate of the mean is the
center line on the control chart, which is
the overall mean (X-double bar) of 15.33
grams.
If the process remains in control, the
company can predict that all bottles of this
soft drink produced in the future will have
a sugar content of, on average, 15.33
grams.
Interpretation of X-bar Chart
This prediction, however, indicates that there
is a problem with the location of the mean.
п‚· The process mean is off target by 0.33 grams
(15.33 -15.00).
п‚· The process mean, although stable and
predictable, is at the wrong level and should
be corrected to the target.
п‚·
Interpretation of X-bar Chart
Since the process mean is in control, there
are no special causes of variation that may be
responsible for the mean being off target.
п‚· Since the operators are responsible for
correcting problems due to special causes
and management is responsible for correcting
problems due to random causes of variation,
management action is required to fix this
problem.
п‚·
Interpretation of X-bar Chart
The reason is that, because the process is in
control, the filling machines require more than
a simple adjustments (typically due to special
causes) which can be made by the operators.
п‚· The machines may require
п‚· new parts,
п‚· a complete overhaul, or
п‚· they may simply not be capable of operating
on target, in which case a new machine is
required.
п‚·
Interpretation of X-bar Chart
Expecting the operators to adjust the mean to
the target when the process is in control is
analogous to requiring that you produce zero
heads (head = defective unit) if you are hired
to toss a fair coin 100 times each day.
п‚· Why?
п‚·
R Chart
Monitors the process variability (the variability
of X)
п‚· Tells us when the process variability has
changed or is about to change.
п‚· R chart must be in control before we can use
the X-bar chart.
п‚·
R Chart
п‚·
Rules for detecting changes in variance:
If at least one sample range falls above the upper
control limit, or there is an upward trend within the
control limits, process variability has increased.
п‚· If at least one sample range falls on or below the
lower control limit, or there is a downward trend
within the control limits, process variability has
decreased.

Interpretation of R Chart
Since all of the sample ranges fall within the
control limits, the R chart is in control.
п‚· The standard deviation is stable and
predictable and can be estimated—done in
next section.
п‚· This does not necessarily mean that the
amount of variation in the process is
acceptable.
п‚·
Interpretation of R Chart
Continuous improvement means the company
should continuously reduce the variance.
п‚· Since the process variation is in control,
management action is required to reduce the
variation.

Is a Stable Process a Good Process?
п‚·
“In control” indicates that the process mean is
stable and hence predictable.
п‚·
A stable process, however, is not necessary a
“good” (defect free) process.
The process mean, although stable, may be
far off target, resulting in the production of
defective product.
 In this case, we have, as Deming puts it, “A
stable process for the production of defective
product.”

Control Limits vs. Spec. Limits

Control limits apply to sample means, not
individual values.

Benefits of Control Charts
п‚·
Control charts prevent unnecessary
adjustments.
п‚· If process is in control, do not adjust it.
п‚· Adjustments will increase the variance.
п‚· Management action is required to improve
process.
п‚· Adjustments should be made only when
special causes occur.
Benefits of Control Charts
Control charts assign responsibility for
corrective action.
п‚· Control charts are the only statistical valid way
to estimate the mean and variance of a
process or product.
п‚· Control charts make it possible to predict
future performance of a process and thereby
take early corrective action.
