The importance of training in the implementation of a quality programme is well known. Training is needed to improve ability, to learn new techniques, and to stimulate involvement in the goals and objectives of the firm. Presents some of the results of a study made of a sample of 44 small firms...
Presents a compact table yielding the parameters of a single sampling scheme. The table is compatible with the structure of MILSTD105D and the switching procedure incorporated in this scheme is relatively simpler than that of MILSTD105D. The basis for the construction of the table is given....
Maintenance costs are increasing as industry is trying to use automation and take advantage of advances in technology. Management needs to plan and control maintenance costs. Adequate techniques for developing standards for maintenance costs are not available. This article outlines such a...
Continuous Sampling Plans CSP are used where processes are continuous and products are not grouped into lots. The principal design criterion for these plans is the Average Outgoing Quality Limit AOQL, which is the worst outgoing quality over all possible values of the incoming quality level....
Suppose that a machine is subject to failures at random with constant probability of p per unit time, and that the only way of telling whether the machine has failed is to test it. Given the above assumptions, presents a simplified equation to determine how often a machine should be inspected.
Presents a simulation model for studying the availability of an ironore production plant interconnected logistically with a large Integrated Steel Manufacturing System ISMS. The objective of the simulation experiment is to validate whether there exists adequate capability of the existing ironore...
A description of failure events during construction illustrates the urgent need to emphasize the management of quality in civil engineering projects. During the construction of a civil engineering project, cost control techniques are used to monitor cost trends and to detect cost deviations in...
