  • Phase II monitoring of polynomial and nonlinear profiles using a
           p-value approach
    • Authors: Azadeh Adibi, Connie M. Borror, Douglas C. Montgomery
      Pages: 101 - 113
      Abstract: In this study, a p-value-based method for monitoring polynomial and nonlinear profiles in Phase II process monitoring is proposed. Performance of the proposed method is evaluated using the average run length criterion under different shifts in the model parameters. In this approach, the p-values are calculated for all subgroups within a sample. If any p-value is less than a prespecified threshold, the chart signals out of control. The main advantage of the proposed method is its ease of implementation in practice. Moreover, in this method, only one control chart is needed for routine monitoring of the model parameters. Only if an out-of-control signal is observed, then individual monitoring of the regression model parameters is needed. Performance of the proposed approach is compared to the T² method. Results of a simulation study on the proposed p-value approach are provided.

  • Enabling comprehensive failure analysis of complex physical system using
           cognitive map-based approach
    • Authors: Shah Limon, Om Prakash Yadav, Bimal Nepal, Leslie Monplaisir
      Pages: 114 - 144
      Abstract: The rapid evolution in technology is leading to complex engineering systems confounding the problems of failure analysis processes. Earlier efforts have concentrated on failure analysis of components but have proven insufficient for analysing the complex physical systems. In this paper, a cognitive map-based approach suggested by Augustine et al. (2012) for system interaction failure analysis is further improved to develop populated network structure considering structural variation. The numerical values to causal arcs are assigned considering qualitative linguistic variables to represent causal relationship between two nodes. The structural variability in cognitive maps due to input from experts or sources is addressed by effectively combining the cognitive map diagrams (networks) and related information received from several sources into single network diagram. A combined adjacency matrix is developed considering credibility weight assigned to each experts. The proposed approach is capable of capturing system interaction failures as well as component failures, which is useful at the early stage of design. A relatively complex physical engineering system of fuel injection is presented as an example to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.

  • Evaluating multi-objective economic-statistical design of
           attribute C control charts for monitoring the number of
           non-conformities
    • Pages: 145 - 161
      Abstract: The C control chart is mostly used to monitor the number of non-conformities per inspection unit of constant size. It is known that the classic C-chart control limits often experience a high false alarm rate and thus lead to the increase of unnecessary costs of inspection. Among many works performed to improve C-charts, this paper presents the optimised control limits approach to the C-chart. In addition, different C-charts are evaluated through factors related to the design of the control chart. Optimally selecting design parameters depends on several process parameters from statistical and/or economic aspects in the literature. This study presents multi-objective economic-statistical design of different C control charts under single assignable cause. An algorithm using the data envelopment analysis (DEA) is employed to solve the models. A numerical example is used to illustrate the algorithm procedure and to evaluate the performances of different designs.

  • Monitoring Allan variance nonlinear profile using artificial neural
           network approach
    • Authors: Karim Atashgar, Amirhossein Amiri, Mahdi Keramatee Nejad
      Pages: 162 - 177
      Abstract: Profile monitoring is effectively used in a case where the response variable is measured along with the corresponding value of an explanatory variable(s). Profile monitoring allows quality engineers to monitor performance of a process statistically considering a functional relationship at a given time. Although several papers can be found in the literature approached nonlinear profile monitoring, to the best of the authors' knowledge, there is not any researches in monitoring Allan variance nonlinear profile approaching artificial neural network (ANN). ANN capabilities help quality engineers to monitor complex nonlinear profiles in real cases effectively. In this paper an ANN model is proposed to monitor the nonlinear profile of Allan variance. Allan variance is a measure of stability of tools such as oscillator and amplifier. The proposed ANN model not only is capable to identify an out-of-control condition, but also the model is capable to diagnose the parameter(s) responsible to the out-of-control condition. A numerical example is considered to evaluate the performance of the proposed ANN when the process experiences different shift sizes. The evaluation of the performance is investigated using average run length (ARL) and correct classification criteria.

  • Quality Insights: Measurement and quality rationing: an analytical
           approach
    • Authors: Adedeji B. Badiru, Anna E. Maloney
      Pages: 178 - 188
      Abstract: Measurement is as important in quality management as it is in many aspects of human endeavours. Take, for example, a business that is attempting to formulate a yearly budget. This business cannot create a budget out of thin air; it must use qualitative and quantitative assessments based on interpretations and equations. The exact methods businesses use to formulate their budgets may vary, but they should all include statistical analysis in order to achieve accuracy and precision. Budget management and quality management are analogous with respect to the application of analytical techniques to make decisions. This paper capitalises on that relationship to apply budget allocation and rationing techniques to quality. This paper presents an analytical approach to measurement and quality rationing in order to meet quality goals. Quality on a scale of measurement is the premise of this paper.
      Keywords: measurement; quality management; quality control; capital rationing; budgeting; quality modelling; budget management; budget allocation
