Conditional Corrective Action Plan for Three Attribute Classes

  • G. ShankarEmail author
  • P. K. Chourasia


In this paper the scope of corrective action plan is enlarged for three attribute classes of the production process. The OC and other performance characteristics of the plan have been derived by Graphical Evaluation and Review Technique (GERT). Poisson unity values have been tabulated to facilitate the operation and construction of the plan. Lastly, explanation of the proposed model has been illustrated numerically.
