Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to smoothly introduce the reader to Quality Control techniques from the so-called Seven Basic Quality Control tools: Cause-and-effect-diagram, check sheet, control chart, histogram, Pareto chart, scatter diagram, and stratification. These are basic but powerful tools when used wisely.

Keywords

Control Chart Exponentially Weight Move Average Statistical Process Control Pareto Chart Root Cause Analysis 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
