2. Course Description

This course introduces advanced statistical concepts and techniques in quality control, graphical
methods for data presentation and quality improvement, statistical basis for control charts, descriptive
statistics, discrete and continuous statistical distributions, inferences about process control, confidence
intervals and hypothesis testing, statistical basis for control charts, control charts for variables and
attributes, analysis of variance. Cumulative sum and exponentially weighted moving average control
charts, introduction to multivariate control charts, linear regression, principal component analysis,
multivariate exponentially weighted moving average control chart, acceptance sampling, experimental
design, design of experiments in process improvement, factorial experiments, factorial design, more on
design of experiments, and fractional replications of designs.

3. Learning Outcomes

 By the end of this course, students should be able to:
1. Apply control charts to monitor the quality characteristics of a product or process
2. Learn techniques for multivariate process monitoring and diagnosis
3. Design and analyze experiments for improving a manufacturing process
4. Implement statistical process control projects in MATLAB.
