SQC Case Studies

  • Theodore T. AllenEmail author


This chapter contains two descriptions of real projects in which a student played a major role in saving millions of dollars: the printed circuit board study and the wire harness voids study. The objectives of this chapter include: (1) providing direct evidence that the methods are widely used and associated with monetary savings and (2) challenging the reader to identify situations in which specific methods could help.
