Total Quality Management (TQM): Training Module on "Statistical Process Control."
Leigh, David
This module for a 1-semester Total Quality Management (TQM) course for high school or community college students gives a brief introduction to some statistical tools. It includes a section on process variation that is intended to familiarize students with the causes of variation such as common and special causes. Statistical definitions are given for common statistical terms such as "mean" and "standard deviation," with examples to aid students in understanding the meanings of the terms. Run charts and control charts are described. An eight-step process is defined for the use of control charts, and two examples are provided. An example of a run chart also is provided. A bibliography lists six references. Handouts and transparency masters are included. (KC)
