Topic: Quality Statistical Tools Presented by LARRY BARTKUS
Presentation will cover some of the more useful tools for the Quality professional. The talk will cover three significant topics:
1) The Binomial Distribution and OC Curves. We will look at how a statistical statement can be made based on the results of our sampling, inspection
and test. We will review the value of OC curves routine found for our sampling plan and what the risks are relating to our findings.
2) Confidence Limits & Confidence Levels. Using data we will derive what the actual process is capable of achieving in regards to either measurements or ability to meet specification. The concept of what we usually call “95, 99 or 95, 90” will be explained in simple and meaningful terms.
3) Hypothesis Testing. When we need to compare two or more groups or sets of data, the various hypothesis tests can be quite useful to the Quality
professional. We will review when to use the right test for evaluating our data. It can be confusing at times with the choices of One-proportion, Two-
proportion, Chi Square, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), One-sample t, 2- sample t, Paired t or z-test. We will sort all of that out using a simple matrix
of Hypothesis tests. By the end of the session participants should walk away with a good understanding of these the tools that are available and most importantly how to apply them. Examples in Minitab will be utilized to demonstrate how to interpret the results of the various tests.
