INDUSTRIAL MANGEMENT y y Industrial management is now a branch of engineering which facilitates creation of management system and integrates same with people and their activities to utilize the resources. Industrial management is structured approach to mange the operational activities of the organization. SCOPE OF INDUSTRIAL MANGEMENT 1. Related to Designing of the production system.(see notes) 2.

PRODUCTIVITY
Production is transformation of inputs into the output of commodity in a specific period of time with the given technology. Production implies the creation of form, place and time utilities of different usable commodities and service. Productivity measures the efficiency of the production system. Or productivity may be defined as ratio between output and input. Output means the amount produced or the number of items produced. Input are the various sources employed like land. Building, equipment, machinery, material, labor, etc Output Productivity = Input

PRODUCTIVITY INDEX
Performance Achieved (Effectiveness) PRODUCTIVITY INDEX= Input Resources Consumed (Efficiency) y y Efficiency is the ratio of actual output attained to the standard expected output. It measures of how well the resources are utilized to accomplish the target or result. Effectiveness is the degree of accomplishing the objectives

Production System
The production system can be viewed as a framework or skeleton of activities within which the creation of value can occur. The difference between the value of input and the value of output represent the value created through production activities. At the one end of the production system are the input and at the other end are output. Connecting the input and output are a series of operations or processes, storage and inspections represent the simplified production system.

INPUT OUTPUT MODEL (ANALYSIS OF PRODUCTION SYSTEM) y y y y y It is one of the basic models of the production system. Production system is the set of interconnected input output element. It is made up of three component parts namely Input, Output and Process. A wide variety of inputs are transformed so that they give out a set of output. The transforming process can be complicated and the design of an actual input and output system for manufacturing may be expensive and difficult.

These principles are derived: a. choice making or decision making.Each of these functions involves creative problem solving. c. It also helps the individual in acquiring speed. There should be a balance between the two i. practical experience of managers. e. if anyone is made responsible for any job. Party of Authority & Responsibility a. management principles are the statements of fundamental truth based on logic which provides guidelines for managerial decision making and actions. Authority & responsibility are co-existing.e. b. (Figure 4. 2.Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal . Subdivision of work makes it simpler and results in efficiency.Ansar-Ul-Haque. the father of the school of Systematic Management. they must go hand in hand. f. b. accuracy in his performance. There are 14 Principles of Management described by Henri Fayol. He recommended that work of all kinds must be divided & subdivided and allotted to various persons according to their expertise in a particular area. 1. Vandana Mittal. Henri Fayol. Authority without responsibility leads to irresponsible behavior whereas responsibility without authority makes the person ineffective. was motivated to create a theoretical foundation for a managerial educational program based on his experience as a successful managing director of a mining company. e. On the basis of observation and analysis i. c. If authority is given to a person. Authority refers to the right of superiors to get exactness from their sub-ordinates whereas responsibility means obligation for the performance of the job assigned. Specialization leads to efficiency & economy in spheres of business. Principles of Management A principle refers to a fundamental truth. managers had no formal training and he observed that the increasing complexity of organisations would require more professional management. Division of Labor a. Henry Fayol has stressed on the specialization of jobs.

Therefore. one plan for a group of activities having similar objectives. efforts of all the members of the organization should be directed towards common goal. In other words. of Necessity It is necessary for fixing responsibility of each subordinates. Unity of command provides the enterprise a disciplined.3. e. Without unity of direction. e. Vandana Mittal. A sub-ordinate should receive orders and be accountable to one and only one boss at a time. Advantage It avoids conflicts. unity of action cannot be achieved. confusion & chaos. or organization as a whole.Dr. It avoids duplication of efforts and wastage Prepared by: Dr. Fayol advocates one head one plan which means that there should be one plan for a group of activities having similar objectives. There should be one plan of action for them and they should be under the charge of a particular manager. It is necessary for sound organization. c. Unity of Direction a. unity of command is not possible without unity of direction.Raj Kumari. dual sub-ordination should be avoided unless and until it is absolutely essential.Dr. In fact. It means one head. a sub-ordinate should not receive instructions from more than one person because It undermines authority Weakens discipline Divides loyalty Creates confusion Delays and chaos Escaping responsibilities Duplication of work Overlapping of efforts c. It creates harmonious relationship between superiors and sub-ordinates. d.Ansar-Ul-Haque. Principle of One Boss a. b. d. According to this principle. b. stable & orderly existence.Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal . Nature It is related to the functioning of personnel¶s. It is related to the functioning departments. 4. Related activities should be grouped together. Basis Unity of command Unity of direction Meaning It implies that a sub-ordinate should receive orders & instructions from only one boss.

the time. effort and money spent on training the worker will go waste. According to Fayol. b. d. Stability of job creates team spirit and a sense of belongingness among workers which ultimately increase the quality as well as quantity of work. d. Wages should be determined on the basis of cost of living. Therefore employees should be appointed after keeping in view principles of recruitment & selection but once they are appointed their services should be served. e. As a result. Fayol advised that management should provide opportunity to its employees to suggest ideas.Dr. has to pass through Scalar chain.

Espirit De¶ Corps (can be achieved through unity of command) a. For example. b. dependability & ability of subordinates etc. d. d. As far as possible. The managers should infuse team spirit & belongingness.Reconciliation of mutual differences and clashes by mutual agreement. There should be no place for misunderstanding.Raj Kumari. c.  Efforts should be made to create enthusiasm and keenness among subordinates so that they can work to the maximum ability. People then enjoy working in the organization & offer their best towards the organization. b. experience of superiors. c. centralization is a situation in which top management retains most of the decision making authority. c. Sub-Ordination of Individual Interest to General Interest a.  Subordinates should be made conscious of that whatever they are doing is of great importance to the business & society.Dr. individual must sacrifice for bigger interests. Prepared by: Dr. . In other words. b. B to A and then downwards with the help of E and F to G which will take quite some time and by that time. Centralization means concentration of authority at the top level. of factors like size of business. it may not be worth therefore a gang plank has been developed between the two. An organization is much bigger than the individual it constitutes therefore interest of the undertaking should prevail in all circumstances. for change of profit sharing ratio. In order to achieve this attitude. ³Degree of centralization or decentralization depends on no. Anything which increases the role of subordinate is decentralization & anything which decreases it is centralization. etc.Proper & regular supervision of work. if D has to communicate with G he will first send the communication upwards with the help of C. e.e. harmony in the work groups and mutual understanding among the members. They can be moulded and modified as per the requirements of situations 12. It refers to team spirit i.Ansar-Ul-Haque. e. face to face communication should be developed. f. Gang Plank clarifies that management principles are not rigid rather they are very flexible. 13. it is essential that .Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal . He also cautioned against the more use of Britain communication to the subordinates i. Fayol cautioned the managers against dividing the employees into competing groups because it might damage the moral of the workers and interest of the undertaking in the long run. for change of location of plant. Fayol suggested that absolute centralization or decentralization is not feasible. In other words.Dr.Employees should be honest & sincere. d. An organization should strike to achieve a lot between the two. e. But in case of conflict. 14. Centralization & De-Centralization a. .e. Vandana Mittal. To inculcate Espirit De¶ Corps following steps should be undertaken  There should be proper co-ordination of work at all levels  Subordinates should be encouraged to develop informal relations among themselves. Decentralization means disposal of decision making authority to all the levels of the organization. sharing authority downwards is decentralization. Spirit De¶ Corps inspires workers to work harder.In the figure given.  Efficient employees should be rewarded and those who are not up to the mark should be given a chance to improve their performance. According to Fayol. reconciliation should be achieved between individual and group interests.

Project Pathways for Management One of the common features of modern management thinking is its focus on methodologies for problemsolving.Other Quality Management Tools Relations Diagram (or Interrelationship Digraph) Relations Diagrams are drawn to show all the different relationships between factors. Why are they worthwhile? Because they make it easy to pick out the factors in a situation which are the ones which are driving many of the other symptoms or factors. the connections are counted. showing that they have an impact on each one. Those with the most connections will usually be the most important factors to focus on. For example.Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal . Dr.Dr.Raj Kumari.

Brainstorms help answer specific questions such as: y y y y What opportunities face us this year? What factors are constraining performances in Department X? What could be causing problem Y? What can we do to solve problem Z? Building Consensus The word consensus comes to us from Latin roots meaning "shared thought". 2. Copy an idea into in more than one affinity set if appropriate. It also provides an easy way for managers of many projects or departments to keep tabs on the status and progress of work. moving ideas from the brainstorm into affinity sets.

New methods for studying work are introduced on a regular basis. Usually they focus effectively on one or another aspect of improvement but they often fail because they do not deal rigorously with the work itself. ASME did something that was even then a long time in the making. Work Simplification has generated billions of dollars through effectiveness and efficiency for organizations that focused on their people and gave them tools for continuous improvement.Storage. The Work Simplification approach utilizes the corporate memory rather than discarding it. assembled or disassembled or intentionally changed. The first process charts appeared as a series of symbols strung down a page in sequential order. the glamour of electronics has seduced many organizations into treating their people as expenses rather than resources.

The main objective of production function is to produce the goods and services demanded by the customers in the most efficient and economical way. Production system is a system whose function is to convert a set of inputs into a set of desired outputs.Ansar-Ul-Haque. Therefore efficient management of the production function is of utmost importance in order to achieve this objective. the entrepreneur steps into the shoe of production manager and attempts to apply managerial principles to the production function in an enterprise.

PRODUCT DESIGN Product design is a strategic decision as the image and profit earning capacity of a small firm depends largely on product design. Once the product to be produced is decided by the entrepreneur the next step is to prepare its design. Product design consists of form and function. The form designing includes decisions regarding its shape, size, color and appearance of the product. The functional design involves the working conditions of the product. Once a product is designed, it prevails for a long time therefore various factors are to be considered before designing it. These factors are listed below: (a) Standardization (b) Reliability (c) Maintainability (d) Servicing (e) Reproducibility (f) Sustainability (g) Product simplification (h) Quality Commensuration with cost (i) Product value (j) Consumer quality (k) Needs and tastes of consumers. Above all, the product design should be dictated by the market demand. It is an important decision and therefore the entrepreneur should pay due effort, time, energy and attention in order to get the best results. Broadly one can think of three types of production systems which are mentioned here under: (a) (b) (c)
(a)

Continuous production Job or unit production Intermittent production
Continuous production: - It refers to the production of standardized products with a standard set

of process and operation sequence in anticipation of demand. It is also known as mass flow production or assembly line production. Prepared by: Dr. Vandana Mittal,Dr.Ansar-Ul-Haque,Dr.Raj Kumari,Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal

This system ensures less work in process inventory and high product quality but involves large investment in machinery and equipment. The system is suitable in plants involving large volume and small variety of

output e.g. oil efineries reform cement manufacturing etc. (b) Job or Unit production: - It involves production as per customer's specification each batch

or order consists of a small lot of identical products and is different from other batches. The system requires comparatively smaller investment in machines and equipment. It is flexible and can be adapted to changes in product design and order size without much inconvenience. This system is most suitable where heterogeneous products are produced against specific orders. (c) Intermittent Production: Under this system the goods are produced partly for inventory and partly

for customer's orders. E.g. components are made for inventory but they are combined differently for different customers. . Automobile plants, printing presses, electrical goods plant are examples of this type of

manufacturing. The nature of the process of production required by these three different types of production system are distinct and require different conditions for their working. Selection of manufacturing process is also a strategic decision as changes in the same are costly. Therefore the manufacturing process is selected at the stage of planning a business venture. It should meet the basic two objectives i.e. to meet the specification of the final product and to be cost effective. The manufacturing process is classified into four types. (i) Jobbing Production: - Herein one or few units of the products are produced as per the requirement and specification of the customer. Production is to meet the delivery schedule and costs are fixed prior to the contract. (ii) Batch Production: - In this, limited quantities of each of the different types of products are manufactured on same set of machines. Different products are produced separately one after the other. (iii) Mass or flow production: Under this, the production run is conducted on a set of machines arranged according to the sequence of operations. A huge quantity of same product is manufactured at a time and is
stocked for sale. Different product will require different manufacturing lines. Since one line can produce only one

type of product, this process is also called as line flow.
(iv) Process Production: Under this, the production run is conducted for an indefinite period. Following factors need to be considered before making a choice of manufacturing Process. a) Effect of volume/variety: This is one of the major considerations in selection of manufacturing process. When the volume is low and variety is high, intermittent process is most suitable and with increase in volume and reduction in variety continuous process become suitable. The following figure indicates the choice of process as a function of repetitiveness. Degree of repetitiveness is determined by dividing volume of goods by variety.

b) Capacity of the plant: Projected sales volume is the key factor to make a choice between batch and
line process. In case of line process, fixed costs are substantially higher than variable costs. The reverse is true for batch process thus at low volume it would be cheaper to install and maintain a batch process and Prepared by: Dr. Vandana Mittal,Dr.Ansar-Ul-Haque,Dr.Raj Kumari,Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal

line process becomes economical at higher volumes.
c) Lead time: - The continuous process normally yields faster deliveries as compared to batch process. Therefore lead-time and level of competition certainly influence the choice of production process. d) Flexibility and Efficiency: - The manufacturing process needs to be flexible enough to adapt contemplated changes and volume of production should be large enough to lower costs. Hence it is very important for entrepreneur to consider all above mentioned factors before taking a decision regarding the type of manufacturing process to be adopted as for as SSI are concerned they usually adopt batch processes due to low investment.

Production planning and control can facilitate the small entrepreneur in the following ways (1) Optimum Utilisation of Capacity: With the help of Production Planning and Control [PPC] the entrepreneur can schedule his tasks and production runs and thereby ensure that his productive capacity does not remain idle and there is no undue queuing up of tasks via proper allocation of tasks to the production facilities. No order goes unattended and no machine remains idle. (2) Inventory control: Proper PPC will help the entrepreneur to resort to just- in- time systems and thereby reduce the overall inventory. It will enable him to ensure that the right supplies are available at the right time. (3) Economy in production time: PPC will help the entrepreneur to reduce the cycle time and increase the turnover via proper scheduling. (4) Ensure quality: A good PPC will provide for adherence to the quality standards so that quality of output is ensured. To sum up we may say that PPC is of immense value to the entrepreneur in capacity utilization and inventory control. More importantly it improves his response time and quality. As such effective PPC contributes to time, quality and cost parameters of entrepreneurial success.

PRODUCTION PLANNING AND CONTROL
Once the entrepreneur has taken the decisions regarding the product design and production processes and system, his next task is to take steps for production planning and control, as this function is essentially required for efficient and economical production. One of the major problems of small scale enterprises is that of low productivity small scale industries can utilise natural resources, which are otherwise lying. Planned production is an important feature of the small industry. The small entrepreneur possessing the ability to look ahead, organize and coordinate and having plenty of driving force and capacity to lead and ability to supervise and coordinate work and simulates his associates by means of a programme of human relation and organization of employees, he would be able to get the best out of his small industrial unit. Gorden and Carson observe production; planning and control involve generally the organization and planning of manufacturing process. Especially it consists of the planning of routing, scheduling, dispatching Prepared by: Dr. Vandana Mittal,Dr.Ansar-Ul-Haque,Dr.Raj Kumari,Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal

(1) Physical plant facilities of the type required to process the material being scheduled. Manufacturing schedule: It is prepared on the basis of type of manufacturing process involved.Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal . Vandana Mittal.Dr. A master schedule is followed by operator schedule which fixes total time required to do a piece of work with a given machine or which shows the time required to do each detailed operation of a given job with a given machine or process. It mainly concerns with time element and priorities of a job. Master Schedule: Scheduling usually starts with preparation of master schedule which is weekly or monthly break-down of the production requirement for each product for a definite time period. It is very useful where single or few products are manufactured repeatedly at regular intervals.Dr. The small entrepreneur should maintain four types of schedules to have a close scrutiny of all stages namely an enquiry schedule. This will enable the speedy execution of job at each center point. The pattern of scheduling differs from one job to another which is explained as below: Production schedule: The main aim is to schedule that amount of work which can easily be handled by plant and equipment without interference. (3) Necessary materials and purchased parts. a production schedule. by having this as a running record of total production requirements the entrepreneur is in better position to shift the production from one product to another as per the changed production requirements.Raj Kumari. As far as small scale industry is concerned scheduling is of utmost importance as it brings out efficiency in the operations and s reduces cost price.

The total load on any section 2. the personnel manager and the financial controller assist in planning production activities. may have to be taken. Corrective measures: Corrective action may involve any of those activities of adjusting the route.

Necessary authority and conformation is given for: 1. 3. 6. 2. Recording of time and cost involved in each operation. a shop schedule is the most important most suited to the needs of small scale industry as it enables a foreman to see at a glance. all the three functions namely material control.

Alternate methods may be suggested to handle peak loads. Dispatching: Dispatching involves issue of production orders for starting the operations. Vandana Mittal. Prepared by: Dr. planning and control are often performed by the entrepreneur himself production control starts with dispatching and ends up with corrective actions. The usefulness of their technique lies in the fact that they compare what has been done and what ought to have been done.

this number can be determined from the other parameters Underlying assumptions of the EOQ model 1. a consultant who applied it extensively. ie. It is one of the oldest classical production scheduling models. the time between the placement of the order and the receipt of the order is known and constant. EOQ only applies where the demand for a product is constant over the year and that each new order is delivered in full when the inventory reaches zero. 2.Raj Kumari.Dr. H.Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal .

Vandana Mittal. W. The model was developed by F. Wilson. Prepared by: Dr. There is also a holding or storage cost for each unit held in storage (sometimes expressed as a percentage of the purchase cost of the item).Ansar-Ul-Haque.

EOQ models with price breaks (quantity discounts) In general Inventory Models are classified as: Fixed order-quantity models ± Economic order quantity ± Production order quantity ± Quantity discount Probabilistic models Fixed order-period models ECONOMIC ORDER QUANTITY (EOQ) Economic order quantity is the level of inventory that minimizes the total inventory holding costs and ordering costs. ie. Note that the number of times an order is placed will also affect the total cost. however. constant. Harris in 1913. Demand is known and is deterministic.

But in reality. (A common misunderstanding is that the formula tries to find when these are equal. Prepared by: Dr. etc. Five EOQ models. situation arises with deviations to the assumptions. Quantity discounts are not possible. Hence it may become imperative to consider different lot sizes. so that ordering cost + carrying cost finds its minimum. Vandana Mittal.Raj Kumari. in addition to unit cost) H = annual holding cost per unit (also known as carrying cost or storage cost) (warehouse space.3. while calculating the EOQ that serves the best possible solution. the price of the product will still be the same. In other words the inventory from an order arrives in one batch at one point in time. insurance.Ansar-Ul-Haque.e. are discussed in this unit.) Variables Q = order quantity Q * = optimal order quantity D = annual demand quantity of the product P = purchase cost per unit S = fixed cost per order (not per unit. in other words it does not make any difference how much we order. That the only costs pertinent to the inventory model are the cost of placing an order and the cost of holding or storing inventory over time EOQ is the quantity to order. Model ± 1: EOQ with Uniform Rate of Demand & Instantaneous Replenishment In this model the assumptions made are: a) Demand is known for the item and is consumed at uniform rate b) Stock replenishment is instantaneous (lead time is zero) i. thus resulting in conflicting issues while seeking the best possible solutions. (for the Basic EOQ-Model) 5.Dr.Dr.Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal . which cater to these requirements. refrigeration.

c) Price of materials is fixed (no quantity discount is assumed) d) Inventory carrying cost per unit is constant. Figure shown below is the graphical representation of the above said model with assumption When reach down to a level of inventory at R, you place your next order for Q sized order

R = Reorder Level. Q = Economic order Quantity AND L = Lead time How to Calculate EOQ The objective is to determine the quantity to order which minimizes the total annual inventory management cost.

Total Cost = purchase cost + ordering cost + holding cost
Purchase cost: This is the variable cost of goods, indicated by per unit purchase price × annual demand quantity. This is indicated as P×D Ordering cost: This is the cost of placing orders, each order has a fixed cost S, and we need to order D/Q times per year. Where Order Cost = The Number of Orders Placed in the period x Order Costs. This is indicated as S × D/Q

Prepared by: Dr. Vandana Mittal,Dr.Ansar-Ul-Haque,Dr.Raj Kumari,Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal

Holding cost: the average quantity in stock (between fully replenished and empty) is Q/2. and Holding cost/Carrying Cost = Average Inventory Level x the Carrying Costs of 1 unit of Stock for one period so this cost is H × Q/2

. To determine the minimum point of the total cost curve, set the ordering cost equal to the holding cost:

Solving for Q gives Q* (the optimal order quantity):

Therefore:

.

Note that interestingly, Q* is independent of P(purchase price); it is a function of only S, D, H. Graphical Solution If we minimize the sum of the ordering and carrying costs, we are also minimizing the total costs. To help visualize this we can graph the ordering cost and the holding cost as shown in the chart below: This chart shows costs on the vertical axis or Y axis and the order quantity on the horizontal or X axis. The straight line which commences at the origin is the carrying cost curve, the total cost of carrying units of inventory. As expected, as we order more on the X axis, the carrying cost line increases in a proportionate manner. The downward sloping curve which commences high on the Y axis and decreases as it approaches the X axis and moves to the right is the ordering cost curve. This curve represents the total ordering cost depending

on the size of the order quantity. Obviously the ordering cost will decrease as the order quantity is increased thereby causing there to be fewer orders which need to be made in any particular period of time.

The point at which these two curves intersect is the same point which is the minimum of the curve which represents the total cost for the inventory system. Thus the sum of the carrying cost curve and the ordering cost curve is represented by the total cost curve and the minimum point of the total cost curve corresponds to the same point where the carrying cost curve and the ordering cost curve intersect. To determine Economic order quantity EOQ that minimizes the total annual inventory costs, we have to differentiate total annual cost with respect to variable Q and set the derivative to zero and by using calculus, the formula for calculating the EOQ works out to:

Another application of a just in time inventory focuses not on raw materials but on finished goods. Prepared by: Dr. or just in time.JUST-IN-TIME INVENTORY JIT. To a great degree. By knowing these two pieces of information. inventory is an inventory management strategy that is aimed at monitoring the inventory process in such a manner as to minimize the costs associated with inventory control and maintenance. Again. shipping finished goods shortly after producing them leads to minimizing storage costs and any taxes that may be applicable.Ansar-Ul-Haque. it is necessary to know how long it will take for the item to be shipped from the supplier and arrive at the manufacturing facility.Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal . First.Dr. a just-in-time inventory process relies on the efficient monitoring of the usage of materials in the production of goods and ordering replacement goods that arrive shortly before they are needed. A just in time inventory management process involves understanding how much of a given item is needed to maintain production while more of the same item is ordered. This dual application of a just in time inventory strategy can significantly cut the operational expenses of a business in regards to the amount of inventory that must be stored at any one time and the amount of taxes that must be paid on larger inventories. the anticipated life or usage of the item must be determined. Vandana Mittal. This involves two key factors. without having the replacement set in storage for an extended period of time.Raj Kumari. the idea is to develop a solid understanding of what is needed to produce goods and schedule them for shipment to customers within the shortest time frame possible. it is possible to establish procedures that allow the item to be reordered just in time to arrive and replace a worn item. As with raw materials. Second. This simple strategy helps to prevent incurring the costs associated with carrying large inventories of raw materials at any given point in time.Dr. Many purchasing departments employ a just in time inventory for such key items as raw materials and machine parts.

Process Control is an essential element of managing risk to ensure the safety and reliability of the Space Shuttle Program. a physical system is represented through variables that are smooth and uninterrupted in time. One example is the production of adhesives and glues. Process Control: Under this the quality of the products is controlled while the products are in the process of production. and maintained so that the completed product conforms to established requirements. mishaps. Robotic assembly. Most discrete manufacturing involves the production of discrete pieces of product. Process Control consists of the systems and tools used to ensure that processes are well defined. Some important continuous processes are the production of y y Prepared by: Dr. incidents and nonconformances.

Other important examples are the production of food. we can know from graphic picture that how the production is proceeding and where corrective action is required and where it is not required.Ansar-Ul-Haque. Whereas in 100 percent inspection. 100 percent inspection is not possible (which will spoil all the products).Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal . sampling inspection is resorted to. 6. Early detection of faults:The moment a sample point falls outside the control limits. can be characterized as discrete process control. They ensure that whether the products confirm to the specified quality standard or not. It is recognized that strict process control practices will aid in the prevention of process escapes that may result in or contribute to in-flight anomalies. Batch processes are generally used to produce a relatively low to intermediate quantity of product per year (a few pounds to millions of pounds).

Statistical Process Control (SPC) is an effective method of monitoring a process through the use of control charts. It has an emphasis on early detection and prevention of problems. Process Control Standards & Practices A program as sophisticated as the Space Shuttle requires the integration of thousands of parts that must endure extreme operating environments. The following are process control standards: Standard 1: Detect and eliminate process variability and uncoordinated changes.Raj Kumari.Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal .fuels. Much of its power lies in the ability to monitor both process center and its variation about that center. Control charts are graphical representation and are based on Prepared by: Dr. Standard 4: Identify key design and manufacturing characteristics and share lessons learned relating to processes. Standard 7: Capture and maintain process knowledge and skills. Standard 3: Understand and reduce process risks. Continuous processes in manufacturing are used to produce very large quantities of product per year (millions to billions of pounds). the control chart tells when to leave a process alone and thus prevent unnecessary frequent adjustments. The Space Shuttle Process Control Management Plan defines the minimum requirements for process control related to flight hardware and critical ground support equipment for the Space Shuttle Program prime contractors. Standard 5: Be personally accountable. By collecting data from samples at various points within the process. Perform to written procedures. Each manufacturer and supplier has unique systems for process control that guarantee the integrity of the hardware. Control Charts Since variations in manufacturing process are unavoidable. Space hardware is produced by a broad supplier base using a wide variety of processes. Vandana Mittal. Those processes.Ansar-Ul-Haque. if not controlled. thus reducing waste as well as the likelihood that problems will be passed on to the customer.Dr.Dr. Standard 2: Eliminate creep through process controls and audits. variations in the process that may affect the quality of the end product or service can be detected and corrected.

Attribute control charts have the advantage of allowing for quick summaries of various aspects of the quality of a product. this type of chart tends to be more easily understood by managers unfamiliar with quality control procedures. Control Charts for Variables vs..Dr. Montgomery (1985) calls the variable control charts leading indicators of trouble that will sound an alarm before the number of rejects (scrap) increases in the production process. or the diameter of plastic tubing. weight.

Attribute charts. or smell.Raj Kumari. 5. 2. precise devices and time-consuming measurement procedures. or determining whether a casting contains cracks or not. In such cases the answer is either yes or no. Therefore. Other examples are the weight of a bag of sugar. The different characteristics that can be measured by control charts can be divided into two groups: variables and attributes. Variables charts are relatively expensive because of the greater cost of collecting measured data. Variables charts are more detailed and contain more information as compared to attribute charts. the bottle of soft drink contains 15. Examples include color. the apple is good or rotten. attribute charts sometimes bypass the need for expensive. such as height. The monitoring of attributes usually takes less time than that of variables because a variable needs to be measured (e. since the amount of liquid in the bottles is measured and can take on a number of different values. the shoes have a defect or do not have a defect. the temperature of a baking oven. Variable control charts are more sensitive than attribute control charts. An attribute requires only a single decision. Vandana Mittal. the engineer may simply classify products as acceptable or unacceptable. Attribute charts are the only way to control quality in those cases where measurement of quality characteristics is either not possible or it is very complicated and costly to do so²as in the case of checking colour or finish of a product. whereas as attribute chart only differentiates between a defective item and a non-defective item without going into the measurement of its dimensions. such as the weight of a cereal box. it may provide more persuasive (to management) evidence of quality problems.. therefore.Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal .Control charts can be used to measure any characteristic of a product.Dr. Thus. taste.

It controls general variability of the process and is affected by changes in process variability. It shows changes in process average and is affected by changes in process variability. Mean (x-Bar) ( ) Charts A mean control chart is often referred to as an x-bar chart. The center line of the control chart is the average range. It is a chart for measure of spread. The center line of the chart is then computed as the mean of all sample means. 1. Range (R) charts Theseare another type of control chart for variables. 7.Dr. 4. It is a chart for the measure of central tendency. 2. for control of number of defects per unit. 3. Each sample must be taken at random and the size of sample is generally kept as 5 but 10 to15 units can be taken for sensitive control charts.Ansar-Ul-Haque.Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal . To construct a mean chart we first need to construct the center line of the chart.Raj Kumari.

Usually these samples are small. 2. the average value of all the measurements and the range R are calculated. with about four or five observations. This chart is called the R chart because the statistic being plotted is the sample range. for process control. The method for developing and using R-charts are the same as that for x-bar charts. The grand average (equal to the average value of all the average ) and ( is equal to the average of all the ranges R) are found and from these we can calculate the control limits for the and R charts. like 1.

No statistical test can be applied.Conclusions: When the process is not in control then then the point fall outside the control limits on either or R charts. 1. P-charts are used to measure the proportion of items in a sample that are defective. The process is said to be in control if fraction defective values fall within the control limits. Each item is classified as good (non-defective) or bad (defective). This chart is used to control the general quality of the component parts and it checks if the fluctuations in product quality (level) are due to chance alone. Attributes are discrete in nature and entail simple yes-or-no decisions. the number of scratches on a tile.Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal . In case the process is out of control an investigation to hunt for the cause becomes necessary. the number of rotten apples. When all the points are inside the control limits even then we cannot definitely say that no assignable cause is present but it is not economical to trace the cause.Dr. P-charts are appropriate when both the number of defectives measured and the size of the total sample can be counted. Control Charts for Attributes: Control charts for attributes are used to measure quality characteristics that are counted rather than measured. 3. It can be a fraction defective chart. Plotting of P-charts: By calculating. It means assignable causes (human controlled causes) are present in the process. or the number of complaints issued. A proportion can then be computed and used as the statistic of measurement. Prepared by: Dr. Vandana Mittal. 2. this could be the number of nonfunctioning lightbulbs. For example.Raj Kumari. Even in the best manufacturing process. the proportion of broken eggs in a carton. Two of the most common types of control charts for attributes are p-charts and c-charts. Examples are the proportion of broken cookies in a batch and the proportion of cars produced with a misaligned fender. the fraction defective and then the control limits.

Consider a wafer with a number of chips on it. ‡ µDefective¶ ± items having one or more defects. Control charts involving counts can be either for the total number of nonconformities (defects) for the sample of inspected units. the number of the so-called "unimportant" defects becomes alarmingly large. Defective items vs individual defects The literature differentiates between defect and defective. For example. It should be pointed out that a wafer can contain several defects but still be classified as conforming.g. the proportion of bacteria on a petri dish. the defects may be located at noncritical positions on the wafer. This may sound like splitting hairs. on the other hand.

The decision is reached through sampling. These stages may be: inspection of incoming materials and parts. process inspection at various points in the manufacturing operations. inspection is carried out at many stages in the process of manufacturing. Acceptance Sampling: ³Acceptance Sampling is concerned with the decision to accept a mass of manufactured items as conforming to standards of quality or to reject the mass as non-conforming to quality.Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal good ones from assemblies and rejection of individual defective item . final inspection by a manufacturer of his own product and finally inspection of the finished product by the purchaser. A sample from the inspection lot is inspected.Dr.

inspection can also be done on finished goods before deciding whether to make the shipment to the customer or not. The objective is not to control or estimate the quality of lots. it is possible to carry out sample inspection at various stages. and the number of samples that will be taken. Very good 100 percent inspection may remove at the most 99 percent of the defectives. The cookies may be inspected to make sure they are not broken or burned. performing 100% inspection is generally not economical or practical.Double Sampling (Inference made on the basis of one or two samples) . Because of its economy. sampling is used instead. .Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal . The variables to be specified include the size of the lot (N). For example.Ansar-Ul-Haque. but still cannot reach the level of 100 percent. a lot size of 50 cookies is evaluated for acceptance by randomly inspecting 10 cookies from the lot.Raj Kumari. Risks in Acceptance sampling 1. such type of risk is known as producer¶s risk. inspection may be performed on incoming raw material. Vandana Mittal. Producer¶s risk-: Sometimes inspite of good quality. Consumer¶s Risk-: Sometimes the quality of the lot is not good but the sample results show good quality units as such the consumer has to accept a defective lot. only to pass a judgment on lots. which are called the consumer's and the producer's risks. to decide whether to keep it or return it to the vendor if the quality level is not what was agreed on. the number of defects above which a lot is rejected (c). Acceptance Sampling is much less expensive than 100 percent inspection. such a risk is known as consumer¶s risk. We encounter making decisions on sampling in our daily affairs. Acceptance Sampling is therefore a method used to make a decision as to whether to accept or to reject lots based on inspection of sample(s). If 4 or more of the 10 Prepared by: Dr. therefore. Role of Acceptance Sampling: Acceptance Sampling is very widely used in practice due to the following merits: 1. For example. Similarly.Dr.Dr. respectively. Acceptance Sampling Plans: A sampling plan is a plan for acceptance sampling that precisely specifies the parameters of the sampling process and the acceptance/rejection criteria.a random sample is drawn from every lot. the entire lot is either accepted or rejected. There are different types of sampling plans. the sample taken may show defective units as such the lot will be rejected. Due to the effect of inspection fatigue involved in 100 percent inspection. Single Sampling Plans In this.Single Sampling (Inference made on the basis of only one sample) .Sequential Sampling (Additional samples are drawn until an inference can be made) etc. Inspection provides a means for monitoring quality. Using sampling rather than 100% inspection of the lots brings some risks both to the consumer and to the producer. 3. 2.´ Depending on the number of defects or ³bad´ items found. 2. the size of the sample inspected from the lot (n). Acceptance sampling determines whether a batch of goods should be accepted or rejected.Acceptance sampling is the process of randomly inspecting a sample of goods and deciding whether to accept the entire lot based on the results. Each item in the sample is examined and is labeled as either ³good´ or ³bad. It is general experience that 100 percent inspection removes only 82 to 95 percent of defective material. a good sampling plan may actually give better results than that achieved by 100 percent inspection. However.

if the results fall in the middle range. Multiple Sampling Plan: Multiple sampling plans are similar to double sampling plans except that criteria are set for more than two samples. Criteria may be set for acceptable or unacceptable water quality. These parameters define the acceptance sampling plan.Dr. In double sampling we first sample a lot of goods according to preset criteria for definite acceptance or rejection. a sample of water containing between . Because the actual cost of getting the sample is high.1 percent chlorine is inconclusive and calls for a second sample of water. we want to get a large sample and sample only once. if the cost of collecting a sample is relatively high.Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal .Dr. In this example. Double Sampling Plan: This provides an opportunity to sample the lot a second time if the results of the first sample are inconclusive. An extreme example is collecting a biopsy from a hospital patient. single sampling is preferred. Vandana Mittal.Ansar-Ul-Haque.cookies inspected are bad. the sample size n_ 10. a water treatment plant may sample the quality of the water ten times in random intervals throughout the day. the time consumed by sampling. and the cost of passing on a defective item.Raj Kumari.05 percent chlorine and .they are considered inconclusive and a second sample is taken.

For example.05 percent and . such as . the lot size N _ 50. the entire lot is rejected. where collecting the water is inexpensive but the chemical analysis is costly. and the maximum number of defects at which a lot is accepted is c _ 4.1 percent chlorine. The opposite is true when the cost of collecting the sample is low but the actual cost of testing is high. In this section we focus primarily on single sampling plans. Prepared by: Dr.

Specific causes of problems can be explored through brainstorming. For example. The greater the degree of correlation. These charts are used to evaluate whether a process is operating within expectations relative to some measured value such as weight. For example. On the other hand. between two variables. In this fashion we can isolate the location of the particular defect and then focus on correcting the problem. Scatter Diagrams Scatter diagrams are graphs that show how two variables arerelated to one another. increased production speed and number of defects could be correlated positively. or per operator. the less correlation exists between the variables. increased worker training might be associated with a decrease in the number of defects observed. Two variables could also be correlated negatively. or the degree of linear relationship. This may be Prepared by: Dr. Vandana Mittal. per machine. or volume. poor supervision. we say that it is ³in control. other types of relationships can also be observed on a scatter diagram. Cause-and-effect diagrams are problem-solving tools commonly used by quality control teams. or the volume of a bottle of soft drink.Ansar-Ul-Haque. The development of a cause-and-effect diagram requires the team to think through all the possible causes of poor quality.Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal . We will study the use of control charts at great length in the next chapter. and many other aspects of the production process. Flowcharts A flowchart is a schematic diagram of the sequence of steps involved in an operation or process. The chart has a line down the center representing the average value of the variable we are measuring. As long as the observed values fall within the upper and lower control limits. as production speed increases. It is a simple yet effective fact-finding tool that allows the worker to collect specific information regarding the defects observed. the more scattered the observations in the diagram. Checklists A checklist is a list of common defects and the number of observed occurrences of these defects. called the upper control limit (UCL) and the lower control limit (LCL). everyone develops a clear picture of how the operation works and where problems could arise.´ To evaluate whether or not a process is in control. For example. we could measure the weight of a sack of flour. old equipment. a problem with workers could be related to lack of training. we regularly measure the variable of interest and plot it on a control chart. It provides a visual tool that is easy to use and understand. if a defect is being observed frequently. Of course. For example. It is clear that the biggest problem is ripped material. This means that the plant needs to focus on this specific problem²for example. a problem with machines could be due to a need for adjustment. When a measured observation falls outside of these limits. By seeing the steps involved in an operation or process.Dr. there is a problem. Each of these possible causes can then have smaller ³bones´ that address specific issues that relate to each cause. They are particularly useful in detecting the amount of correlation. by going to the source of supply or seeing whether the material rips during a particular production process. a checklist can be developed that measures the number of occurrences per shift. The checklist in Figure 5-7 shows four defects and the number of times they have been observed. or tooling problems. width. such as an inverted. A checklist can also be used to focus on other dimensions.

the case when one is observing the relationship between two variables such as oven temperature and number of defects, since temperatures below and above the ideal could lead to defects. Pareto Analysis Pareto analysis is a technique used to identify quality problems based on their degree of importance. The logic behind Pareto analysis is that only a few quality problems are important, whereas many others are not critical. The technique was named after Vilfredo Pareto, a nineteenth-century Italian economist who determined that only a small percentage of people controlled most of the wealth. This concept has often been called the 80±20 rule and has been extended too many areas. In quality management the logic behind Pareto¶s principle is that most quality problems are a result of only a few causes. The trick is to identify these causes. One way to use Pareto analysis is to develop a chart that ranks the causes of poor quality in decreasing order based on the percentage of defects each has caused. For example, a tally can be made of the number of defects that result from different causes, such as operator error, defective parts, or inaccurate machine calibrations. Percentages of defects can be computed from the tally and placed in a chart like those shown in Figure 5-7.We generally tends to find that a few causes account for most of the defects. Histograms A histogram is a chart that shows the frequency distribution of observed values of a variable. We can see from the plot what type of distribution a particular variable displays, such as whether it has a normal distribution and whether the distribution is symmetrical. In the food service industry the use of quality control tools is important in identifying quality problems. Grocery store chains, such as Kroger and Meijer, must record and monitor the quality of incoming produce, such as tomatoes and lettuce. Quality tools can be used to evaluate the acceptability of product quality and to monitor product quality from individual suppliers. They can also be used to evaluate causes of quality problems, such as long transit time or poor refrigeration. Similarly, restaurants use quality control tools to evaluate and monitor the quality of delivered goods, such as meats, produce, or baked goods.

ISO 9000 Standards Increases in international trade during the 1980s created a need for the development of universal standards of quality. Universal standards were seen as necessary in order for companies to be able to objectively document
Prepared by: Dr. Vandana Mittal,Dr.Ansar-Ul-Haque,Dr.Raj Kumari,Ms Surat Pyari & Ms Anuja Agarwal

their quality practices around the world. Then in 1987 the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) published its first set of standards for quality management called ISO 9000. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an international organization whose purpose is to establish agreement on international quality standards. It currently has members from 91 countries, including the United States. To develop and promote international quality standards, ISO 9000 has been created. ISO 9000 consists of a set of standards and a certification process for companies. By receiving ISO 9000 certification, companies demonstrate that they have met the standards specified by the ISO. The standards are applicable to all types of companies and have gained global acceptance. In many industries ISO certification has become a requirement for doing business. Also, ISO 9000 standards have been adopted by the European Community as a standard for companies doing business in Europe. In December 2000 the first major changes to ISO 9000 were made, introducing the following three new standards: ‡ ISO 9000:2000±Quality Management Systems±Fundamentals and Standards: Provides the terminology and definitions used in the standards. It is the starting point for understanding the system of standards. ‡ ISO 9001:2000±Quality Management Systems±Requirements: This is the standard used for the certification of a firm¶s quality management system. It is used to demonstrate the conformity of quality management systems to meet customer requirements. ‡ ISO 9004:2000±Quality Management Systems±Guidelines for Performance: Provides guidelines for establishing a quality management system. It focuses not only on meeting customer requirements but also on improving performance. These three standards are the most widely used and apply to the majority of companies. However, ten more published standards and guidelines exist as part of the ISO 9000 family of standards. To receive ISO certification, a company must provide extensive documentation of its quality processes. This includes methods used to monitor quality, methods and frequency of worker training, job descriptions, inspection programs, and statistical process-control tools used. High-quality documentation of all processes is critical. The company is then audited by an ISO 9000 registrar who visits the facility to make sure the company has a well-documented quality management system and that the process meets the standards. If the registrar finds that all is in order, certification is received. Once a company is certified, it is registered in an ISO directory that lists certified companies. The entire process can take 18 to 24 months and can cost anywhere from $10,000 to $30,000. Companies have to be recertified by ISO every three years. One of the shortcomings of ISO certification is that it focuses only on the process used and conformance to specifications. In contrast to the Baldrige criteria, ISO certification does not address questions about the product itself and whether it meets customer and market requirements. Today there are over 40,000 companies that are ISO certified. In fact, certification has become a requirement for conducting business in many industries. ISO 14000 Standards The need for standardization of quality created an impetus for the development of other standards. In 1996 the International Standards Organization introduced standards for evaluating a company¶s environmental responsibility. These standards, termed ISO 14000, focus on three major areas: ‡ Management systems standards measure systems development and integration of environmental responsibility into the overall business. ‡ Operations standards include the measurement of consumption of natural resources and energy. ‡ Environmental systems standards measure emissions, effluents, and other waste systems.

Not only do we use fossil fuels for our obvious everyday needs (such as filling a car). ³Pollutants can be naturally occurring substances or energies.´ Pollution is habitat contamination´.Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into the environment that cause harm or discomfort to humans or other living organisms. because the natural environment does not know how to decompose the unnaturally generated elements (i.e. Why does pollution matter?
