Provides the methods and tools for the manufacturing manager to improve quality, increase productivity, and enhance the competitive position of the manufacturing line. Proposes potentially controversial methods of performance appraisals, operation certification, line qualification, vendor certification, and just-in-time manufacturing. The organization of this book takes the reader logically from the basics of statistics through the fundamentals of statistical quality control, to the manufacturing applications and accompanying manufacturing strategies of statistical quality control (SQC). This book is the first written specifically for manufacturing management. Examples throughout the book demonstrate how the manufacturing manager can successfully implement SQC in the manufacturing process. Real-life manufacturing situations described illustrate situations managers are likely to find in their own line.
