Abstract. Minimizing the number of defects is important to any company since it influence their outputs and profits. The aim of this paper is to study the implementation of industrial engineering tools in a manufacturing recycle paper box company. This study starts with reading the standard operation procedures and analyzing the process flow to get the whole idea on how to manufacture paper box. At the same time, observations at the production line were made to identify problem occurs in the production line. By using check sheet, the defect data from each station were collected and have been analyzed using Pareto Chart. From the chart, it is found that glue workstation shows the highest number of defects. Based on observation at the glue workstation, the existing method used to glue the box was inappropriate because the operator used a lot of glue. Then, by using cause…...

On an Improved Fraction Nonconforming Control Chart

...ON AN IMPROVED FRACTION NONCONFORMING CONTROL CHART Jacob Alford, Graduate student, University of Alabama in Huntsville Abstract. In their article published in the April 2013 edition of Control Engineering Practice, Silvia Joekes and Emanuel Pimentel Barbosa present the use of a correction factor, the Cornish-Fisher quantile correction, to improve the fraction nonconforming control chart (p-chart) when dealing with high quality processes. Introduction. The use of the standard Shewhart control chart for the fraction of nonconforming parts will produce a type I error–signaling that the process is out of control when, in fact, it is still in control–with probability 0 = 0.0027. When dealing with a process with both high quality and a large yield, the control limits for the Shewhart p-chart based on the normal distribution will become tighter, leaving a greater chance of a false alarm signal occurring. This journal entry proposes a modified version of the p-chart based on the CornishFisher expansion, which allows monitoring processes with very low values of p. This new corrected p-chart is shown using one and two terms of correction. Shewhart p-chart basics. Shewhart control charts use 3 limits for both upper and lower control limits, i.e.   3 . The use of Shewhart control charts is commonplace due to their ease of use: the process will only ever signal in control or out of control. This type of pass/fail or conforming/nonconforming relationship is used for attributes......

Spc Charts

...Process Control: GMS-401 F2013 In GMS-401 we study 2 types: 1. Inspection for variables —there is typically one dimension most indicative of QUALITY or lack of Quality of an item being studied for compliance to a Quality Standard. Here it is a dimension such as the contents of a jar of fruit jam, the size of a pair of shoes etc. These are called X-bar and R charts. One calculates X-bar-bar and R-bar averages and these are the centre lines of the SPC run-charts that will be drawn. The charts MUST have these centre lines PLUS upper and lower control AND range limits. The points on these graphs MUST be joined so that a reader can follow the level of quality versus centre lines and control limits over time and look for trends and potential out-of-control conditions. The data will be in a set of readings typically taken at say one-hour intervals. The number of readings taken each hour is the sample size–for example 4 jars of jam in the exercise book. The sample size of 4 is used in calculating the control limits and for determining the value of the statistical constants used in these calculations such as A2, D3,D4. The “number of samples” is 10 but the “sample size” is 4. The 10 samples will be plotted on a graph but the number 10 in this case is NOT used in the calculation of control limits when looking up the A2,D3, and D4 values. In this type of SPC BOTH graphs must be drawn and examined. If a SINGLE POINT on either graph exceeds the upper or lower control or......

...as shown on organization charts. ■ How an organization chart is structured showing the lines of authority. ■ The different types of organizational structures presently used by retailers. ■ The beginnings of organization structuring for large department stores and how they have changed to suit today’s companies. ■ Reasons why chain organizations conduct their businesses as centralized op- erations. ■ Why some chains have decentralized some of their functions. ■ Reasons for separating the buying and selling functions. Once the decision has been made to begin a retail venture, it is necessary to plan its organ- izational structure in a way that maximizes efficiency and profitability. All of the duties and responsibilities of those in the company must be identified, and lines of authority must be carefully delineated so that all members of the organization will understand what their job responsibilities are. By doing so, everyone knows who will report to whom, who the deci- sionmakers are, and which advisory personnel is on hand to assist in the decision-making process. No matter how large or small the operation, whether it is a major department store or single-unit boutique, each company must be structured in such a way that best serves its needs and makes the business a success. To clarify their organization’s structure so that all employees can understand it, most companies prepare a graphic presentation called an organization chart. The chart clearly spells out the......

Chart Review

...Purpose. There are many reasons to conduct chart reviews such a required by a regulatory agency, justification of billing, and research. Another frequently used purpose of a chart review is to assist in measuring quality of care. This measurement is then used to help determine if a change in process is needed to improvement patient outcomes. There are several models used in process improvement including Juran’s Universal Sequence for Quality Improvement, the Seven-step problem-solving model, FOCUS-PDCA and Six-Sigma DMAIC (Langley, Moen, Nolan, Nolan, Norman & Provost, 2009). Chart reviews can be an integral step in all of these models in gleaning data to measure the depth of the problem or if it even exists. This paper will compare the advantages and disadvantages of reviewing charts, describe the basic considerations in performing chart reviews, and describe issues that can threaten the validity of data. Lastly, this paper will look closer at the Six-Sigma DMAIC process as this is the methodology used to guide process improvement in the facility for which this information is being obtained. Background. In 1966, Donabedian stated that the quality of health care is measured by structure, process, and outcome observation. Structure measurement includes resource quality, availability and accessibility (Donabedian, 1966). Process measurement looks at the health care services that clinicians and providers deliver (Donabedian, 1966). Outcome measurement is the end......

...Organizational Structure and Culture Paper 14 April 2011 Organizational Structure and Culture Paper An organization is a collection of people working together under a defined structure to achieve predetermined outcomes using financial, human, and material resources. This paper will focus on the organizational structure of Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton (NHCP), how the NHCP structure supports client-centered care, uses information systems, the methods of communications, the decision making-ability, informal and formal reporting lines while looking at issues of power and control, in addition to who the actual leaders are in the organization, how social and cultural influences of the community are integrated into the delivery of care as well as the generational deference influences. All as they relate to the organizational structure of Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton. The type of organizational structure used at Naval hospital Camp Pendleton, is a tall service line structure with the hospital captain at the top answering to regional leadership and directly to Washington D.C. Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton also uses classical theory; the military and federal government work very well on the premise of efficiency through design, a rational and well-defined task or organizational design. Nursing does not have an independent chain of command but falls under the charge nurse in each departments answering to the department head who answers to the executive officer who answers...
