  • Bayesian modelling of a quality accreditation network
    • Authors: Tarek Elsmuai, Chris McCollin
      Pages: 181 - 199
      Abstract: Accreditation of laboratories has been a subject of considerable interest because product quality guarantee has become one of the prime factors to be considered at this present time of highly competitive industrial activity. Laboratories in the developing countries need to establish a new strategy on accreditation to be able to demonstrate the capability to compete internationally taking account of the difficulties, barriers, confidence and international acceptance. This paper intends to investigate the factors that lead to establishing a sustainable national accreditation body (NAB) and examine employees and management's attitudes and perceptions toward the development of a sustainable NAB in accordance with ISO/IEC 17011. The analysis has led to development of the main important factors that are directly affecting accreditation programmes in the developing countries. The Bayesian analyses have identified the main drivers of an accreditation model. The outcomes of the analyses are satisfactory because they correspond with the results of the theoretical framework.

  • Multivariate optimisation of key factors for construction operations
    • Authors: Eleftherios-Stamatios N. Telis, George J. Besseris, Constantinos Stergiou, Mukesh Limbachiya
      Pages: 200 - 212
      Abstract: This paper presents a methodology for simultaneous optimisation taking into account the key factors for earth retaining structures design, using a real-world case study. These are safety factor, overall cost, total displacements and steel tension. The possible values of the design variables are discrete and its applications often depend on the engineers' experience, the geotechnical investigation outcome and site accessibility. These variables are chosen based on the ground morphology and on the steel section and temporary prestressed anchors properties. The approach for this simultaneous optimisation of the critical design characteristics of the 'Berlinoise' retaining project is based on the desirability analysis - a proven statistical methodology. The presented work was supplemented with the use of finite element analysis. Via this methodology, engineers accurately predict the needed design characteristics, for a robust and financially beneficial study, as long as the input data are properly defined and the design variables values wisely selected.

  • Development of acceleration factors for reliability testing of mechanical
           equipment
    • Authors: John W. Evans, Guangming Chen, Jillian Y. Evans, James Bartos
      Pages: 213 - 224
      Abstract: Accelerated life tests allow for reduction of test time to demonstrate targeted life of a component for a given level of reliability. This is accomplished by increasing loads on the component or by compressing the time scale in relation to the service environment. The acceleration factor provides a quantitative estimate of the relationship between the test condition and the field condition for this purpose. This paper provides a detailed process, for developing acceleration factor models for reliability testing of mechanical components. Several examples are given for various types of mechanical components undergoing wear-out processes.
      Keywords: reliability testing; life testing; acceleration factors; accelerated tests; mechanical equipment; component lifetime; wear out.

  • Improving tennis player performance using system development
           interpretations methodology
    • Authors: Dotan Shvorin, Kevin Taaffe
      Pages: 225 - 242
      Abstract: This research demonstrates a unique analytical approach to improving a player's performance in the game of tennis. We introduce a system development interpretations (SDI) methodology for associating player characteristics and factors in a hierarchical structure. We then show how this tool is applied in a human performance environment such as tennis. This approach was developed as a multi-disciplinary quality tool for process improvement that identifies factor dependencies and depicts their impact on the resulting player performance. From the implementation of the SDI methodology, the research was able to define the tennis player's difficulties and it has allowed the researchers to build an entire team profile of the Clemson University tennis programme as well as to introduce important conceptual foundations in this field.

  • Scaling performance examination of microcontroller-based conductivity
           measuring instruments
    • Authors: Dotan Shvorin, Kevin Taaffe
      Pages: 243 - 260
      Abstract: Conductivity measuring instruments should only be used if they allow carrying out the measurements of required accuracy and format, and are suitable for their measuring environment. This paper introduces a statistical analysis for scaling performance examination of conductivity instruments, enabling analysts to assess if these instruments meet specified requirements. Information is given on how analysts can verify the scaling performance of the instruments using one-way classification analysis of variance and Welch's approximate t-test. Employing these methods as a useful technique in the field of statistical inference, it was shown that there is a strong correlation between the values of relative errors of measurements and scaling performance of the tested conductivity measuring instruments.

  • Product of triangular distributions with range [0, 1]
    • Authors: Justin R. Chimka, Raj Anand Rajagopalan
      Pages: 261 - 268
      Abstract: Where random variables have unknown distributions approximated by triangular distributions, products of random variables cannot be derived, so we are left to observe random samples of such a product and hope it might be well approximated with some familiar distribution. Parameters of the beta distribution are expressed as a second-degree polynomial in c<SUB align="right">1 and c<SUB align="right">2, where c<SUB align="right">1 and c<SUB align="right">2 are the modes of triangular distributions to be multiplied. Given observations of the responses α<SUB align="right">1 and α<SUB align="right">2, and corresponding independent variables c<SUB align="right">1 and c<SUB align="right">2, we model the beta distribution parameters as multiple linear functions of their original triangular distribution parameters c<SUB align="right">1 and c<SUB align="right">2. Evidence suggests that the product of independent triangular random variables has the approximate distribution of the beta with parameters that are functions of the original triangular random variables' parameters.

  • Quality Insights: Global quality research, thoughts, and perspectives
    • Authors: Justin R. Chimka, Raj Anand Rajagopalan
      Pages: 269 - 272
      Abstract: This inaugural write-up of Quality Insights presents a variety of global quality research, thoughts, and perspectives into what quality is all about and why it is important for us never to let up in our pursuit of better quality, no matter how elusive it might appear at first glance. Quality is achievable and there is always room for better quality of products and services. Even behavioural outputs and interpersonal interactions can benefit from better quality.
