Quality Textiles International Scenario
Since Quality Textiles quality assurance department checks their product regularly, they know that their process for fabric weight has a mean of 2.73 oz/in² and a standard deviation of 0.31. Goetsch and Davis (2010), wrote ” UCL and LCL represent the ±3σ limits of the process averages and are drawn as dashed lines on the control charts” (p.450). They further wrote that “99.73% of all sample values will be found between + 3σ and -3σ” ( p. 366). Based on this information the following limits can be derived:

Lower Control Limit (LCL) = 2.73 – 3(.31) = 1.80 ( LCL = μ – 3σ)
Upper Control Limit (UCL) = 2.73 + 3(.31) = 3.66 ( UCL = μ + 3σ)
The table presented below provides the data retrieved from the University of Phoenix student website. The mean, standard deviation, and histogram of the provided data follow.
