Abstract

An interactive program has been developed which simulates several representative industrial processes. Specifically, the program generates product quality characteristic values which are concurrently monitored by standard control charting methods. The program requires the user to specify initial process parameter values and subsequent process adjustments; the latter is necessary in the event the process is deemed to be "out-of-control". The effectiveness of these decisions are measured by economic criteria. The use of the software promotes a "hands-on" approach, which will better prepare the students to achieve quality improvements in an industrial environment through systematic and scientific evaluation.
