  • Measuring process capability index C″p(u, v) for fuzzy
           data and fuzzy requirements
    • Authors: Lixin Shen, Jianjun He, Shuang Qiao
      Pages: 273 - 288
      Abstract: Process capability indices are quantitative measures on process performance. The C″<SUB align="right">p(u, v) indices family depending on two parameters allows to generalise the common indices used in industry. Ordinarily the process data and process requirements are assumed to be precise numbers. In practical situations, however, it is more realistic to assume that they are more or less imprecise. Such observations are called fuzzy. This paper presents a family of fuzzy indices for processes where the observations, the specification limits and the target are fuzzy. The membership function of fuzzy capability indices is constructed on the basis of the α-cuts of fuzzy data. A three-decision testing rule is developed to assess process performance based on p-values or critical values. With precise values the suggested approach boils down to the usual binary decision. A real example with a linguistic variable illustrates the setting up of the said method.

  • Hotelling's T2 charts with variable sampling interval and warning
           limit
    • Authors: Lixin Shen, Jianjun He, Shuang Qiao
      Pages: 289 - 302
      Abstract: The idea of variable warning limit is applied to variable sampling interval (VSI) Hotelling's T<SUP align="right">2</SUP> charts. The purpose is to reduce the average frequency of switches between the sampling interval lengths of VSI T<SUP align="right">2</SUP> charts during their implementation. Expressions for the performance measures for variable sampling interval and warning limit (VSIWL) T<SUP align="right">2</SUP> charts are developed. The performances of VSIWL T<SUP align="right">2</SUP> charts are compared numerically with that of static, VSI, and VSI (1, 3) T<SUP align="right">2</SUP> charts, where VSI (1, 3) T<SUP align="right">2</SUP> charts are the VSI T<SUP align="right">2</SUP> charts with runs rule (1, 3) for switching between sampling interval lengths. A VSIWL T<SUP align="right">2</SUP> chart yields different out-of-control performances for the same in-control statistical performance depending on the choices of values of its warning limit. The values of its warning limit can be chosen to yield the average frequency of switches between its sampling interval lengths dramatically and significantly smaller than that of VSI and VSI (1, 3) T<SUP align="right">2</SUP> charts, respectively, and to yield slightly better statistical performance than that of VSI and VSI (1, 3) T<SUP align="right">2</SUP> charts.

  • A fuzzy Taguchi loss-based process capability index
    • Authors: Lixin Shen, Jianjun He, Shuang Qiao
      Pages: 303 - 318
      Abstract: Process capability indices are appropriate tools to measure the inherent capability of a process, but most of them do not take into account the losses of a process. By integrating the Taguchi loss function and a process capability index (C<SUB align="right">pk), a new process capability index called fuzzy Taguchi loss-based process capability index (FTPCI) was developed. Due to the definitions of a capable process or value of standard loss, the fuzzy approach to the result of the index C<SUB align="right">pk and Taguchi losses have been proposed. In order to construct this new fuzzy process capability index, Mamdani fuzzy system consisting of the Taguchi loss and the index C<SUB align="right">pk was employed. Finally, an example on the usage of this process capability index illustrated the results.

  • A two-stage group sampling plan based on truncated life tests for a
           M-O extended exponential distribution
    • Authors: Lixin Shen, Jianjun He, Shuang Qiao
      Pages: 319 - 331
      Abstract: In this paper, we considered a two-stage group acceptance sampling plan based on a truncated life tests for a lifetime follows Marshall-Olkin (M-O) extended exponential distribution. The decision on acceptance of lot can be made in the first or second stage according to the number of failures from each group. The design parameters of the proposed plan such as number of groups required and the acceptance number for each of two stages are determined so as to satisfy the consumer's risk at the specified unreliability when group size and test duration are specified. Single-stage group sampling plans are also considered as special cases of the proposed plan and compared with the proposed plan in terms of the average sample number and the operating characteristics. The results are explained with examples.

  • A comparative analysis of methodologies of daily metroplex ozone
           concentration prediction
    • Authors: Elizabeth A. Cudney, Steven M. Corns, Protyusha DasNeogi
      Pages: 332 - 347
      Abstract: This paper compares three methods of predicting the changes in ozone concentration: linear regression, classification and regression tree (CART) analysis, and the T-method. Using linear regression on these results, a linear equation defining the change of the independent variable versus the dependent variables is created. The strength of the relationship is assessed using the R-squared value and adjusted R-squared value. Classification and regression tree analysis uses a tree-building methodology to generate decision rules, using patterns from historical data obtained on both the dependent variable and the independent or 'predictor' variables to create a prediction model. The T-method is used to calculate an overall prediction based on the dynamic signal-to-noise ratio to obtain an overall estimate of the true value of the output for each signal member. It was found that for this nearly directly correlated dataset the T-method performed comparably to linear regression and was a better predictor than the CART method.

  • Analysing quality performance gaps between customer expectations and
           developers perceptions in the software industry
    • Authors: Elizabeth A. Cudney, Steven M. Corns, Protyusha DasNeogi
      Pages: 348 - 361
      Abstract: The assessment of quality is pervasive but vital in organisations. It is particularly important in the design of an effective quality management system. The assessment is often considered from the perspective of fulfilling customers' requirements; however, the level of compatibility between a product or service providers' perceptions of what to deliver and the customers' desires or expectations is often uncertain. This paper describes an empirical study evaluating, within the software industry in Egypt, the extent to which differences, or 'gaps', may exist between software provider perceptions and customer expectations regarding the levels of ideal and actual degrees of performance within multiple dimensions of quality. The study involved a survey of 142 software developers and 111 software customers where gaps were found to exist across nine measured dimensions of quality. These gaps were found to be both statistically and practically significant. The existence of such quality performance gaps is often not measured. These gaps, however, must be firstly measured, and recognised, and secondly addressed within an organisation otherwise there will exist 'flaws' within the design and implementation of the organisation's quality management programme.
