Problem 10

When installing a bath faucet, it is important to properlyfasten the threaded end of the faucet stem to the watersupplyline. The threaded stem dimensions must meetproduct specifications, otherwise malfunction and leakagemay occur. Authors of Improving the ProcessCapability of a Boring Operation by the Applicationof Statistical Techniques (Intl. J. Sci. Engr. Research,Vol. 3, Issue 5, May 2012) investigated the productionprocess of a particular bath faucet manufactured in India.The article reported the threaded stem diameter (targetvalue being 13 mm) of each faucet in 25 samples of size4 as shown here:Subgroup x1 x2 x3 x4 1 13.02 12.95 12.92 12.99 2 13.02 13.10 12.96 12.96 3 13.04 13.08 13.05 13.10 4 13.04 12.96 12.96 12.97 5 12.96 12.97 12.90 13.05 6 12.90 12.88 13.00 13.05 7 12.97 12.96 12.96 12.99 8 13.04 13.02 13.05 12.97 9 13.05 13.10 12.98 12.9610 12.96 13.00 12.96 12.9911 12.90 13.05 12.98 12.8812 12.96 12.98 12.97 13.02Subgroup x1 x2 x3 x413 13.00 12.96 12.99 12.9014 12.88 12.94 13.05 13.0015 12.96 12.96 13.04 12.9816 12.99 12.94 13.00 13.0517 13.05 13.02 12.88 12.9618 13.08 13.06 13.10 13.0519 13.02 13.05 13.04 12.9720 12.96 12.90 12.97 13.0521 12.98 12.99 12.96 13.0022 12.97 13.02 12.96 12.9923 13.04 13.00 12.98 13.1024 13.02 12.90 13.05 12.9725 12.93 12.88 12.91 12.90Calculate control limits based on using the sample rangesto estimate s.
