Reduce Inspection Costs with Sequential Sampling

ANSI/ASQ Z1.4 (formerly MIL-STD 105) is a generally accepted standard for acceptance sampling by attribute (pass/fail) data. Sampling plans are defined by a sample size of n and an acceptance number c, and lots are accepted if the sample contains c or fewer nonconformances or defects. Double sampling and multiple sampling plans seek to reduce the amount of inspection by accepting very good lots quickly, and rejecting very bad lots just ........

Process Capability Analysis, and What to Do if it's Not a Bell Curve

The process capability index, and related process performance index, reflect the ability of a manufacturing process to meet specifications. A Six Sigma process has six process standard deviations between the specification limits and the nominal. The traditional process capability indices, however, rely on the assumption that the process follows a normal (bell curve) distribution. When this is not the case, special but off the shelf meth........

Acceptance Sampling for Variables (ANSI/ASQ Z1.9)

ANSI/ASQ Z1.9 (formerly MIL-STD 414) is a generally accepted standard for acceptance sampling by variables (real number) data. The sampling plans work by (1) calculating the sample's average along with a measurement of dispersion (standard deviation or range) and (2) comparing these results against tabulated criteria to determine whether the lot should be accepted or rejected. Switching rules similar to those of ANSI/ASQ Z1.4 (formerly ........

ISO 9001:2015; You Are 90% of the Way There

The new structure of ISO 9001:2015 seems to be a major change, but there are only a handful of new features that require modification of existing ISO 9001:2008 systems. The processes of an ISO 9001:2008 system already meet most of the requirements of ISO 9001:2015, and there is no need to restructure the quality management system. Among the biggest changes is clause 6.1, Actions to address risks and opportunities. It relates directly to........

Risk Based Thinking in and Beyond ISO 9001:2015

ISO 9001:2015's clause for "actions to address risks and opportunities" is one of the most significant changes to the standard. This provision applies to clauses 4.1, Context of the Organization and clause 4.2, Needs and Expectations of Interested parties. We may easily, however, need to go far beyond the requirements of the standard to achieve world-class results or even stay in business. The fact that a risk or opportunity is not audi........

ISO 9001 and Risk Based Thinking

ISO 9001:2015's provision (6.1) for "actions to address risks and opportunities" is one of the most significant changes to the standard. The standard requires risk-based thinking with regard to (4.1) the organization and its context and (4.2) understanding the needs and expectations of interested parties. It is however necessary to go beyond the basic requirements of the standard. It is quite possible to go out of business despite havin........
