This week you have learned about
process control. You have had the opportunity to learn about the various charts
and statistical tools that can be used in order to control a process. Assume
that you are a part of the quality assurance team for a pharmaceutical company
that is about to release a new medication to control blood pressure. The
quality assurance department is torn as to what method should be used in
process control. Half of your department feel s-charts should be used and the
other half of the department feel x-Bar charts should be used. Our discussion
will be in the format of a debate this week. If your last name begins A-L, you
will be for using x-Bar charts. If your last name begins M-Z, you will be for
using s-Charts. Be sure to use your course materials and outside research to
support your reply.
Your initial response should be a minimum of 150 words. Your work should be in
your own words and should include research to support your response. Be sure to
avoid Wikipedia as a resource as this is not a reliable source. Include your
resources at the end of your response. Once you have completed your response,
you will want to respond to at least two (2) of your classmates responses.
Please remember that your responses to your classmates should be substantive
and should promote additional discussion within the classroom. Simple “I agree”
responses will not be counted towards your participation grade.
