Case Study Bayfield Mud Company
The problem begin when Wet-Land Drilling, Inc.
Had filed a complaint that the bags It received from Baffled were short-weight, according to previous send the weight of the bags used to be 50 pounds, however the new arrivals show a weight of 47. 5 pounds per bag, causing a conflict to the company.
The company present the problem as a increased of demand, hiring new employees with a lack of training, new employees occupy the night shift, where old employees check the production, over the double checking of the bag still a problem to the company. First of all we need to analyze and find the errors the process could have, caused by the increased of demand and a lack of control due the old employees, for the analysis I will use the Statistical Process Control (SSP). Statistical process control (SSP) involves using statistical techniques to measure and analyze the variation In processes.
Most often used for manufacturing processes, the intent of SSP Is to monitor product quality and maintain processes to fixed targets. Statistical quality intro refers to using statistical techniques for measuring and Improving the quality of processes and Includes SSP in addition to other techniques, such as sampling plans, experimental design, variation reduction, process capability analysis, and process improvement plans
Is important to buy scales In the production area and In the bag packers area, the scale will be accompanied by the mean and wage charts, reducing the errors of weight. Also use camera In the areas and training process fro new employees about the doze and the mean and wage of every bag. Reference re a 11th. Sancta.
