Economic Design of Control Chart

Patel, Debabrata (2009) Economic Design of Control Chart. BTech thesis.



The major function of control chart is to detect the occurrence of assignable causes so that the necessary corrective action can be taken before a large quantity of nonconforming product is manufactured. The X-bar control chart dominates the use of any other control chart technique if quality is measured on a continuous scale. In the present project, we develop the economic design of the X-bar control chart using Genetic Algorithm to determine the values of the sample size, sampling interval, width of control limits such that the expected total cost per hour is minimized. The genetic algorithms (GA) are applied to search for the optimal values of the three test parameters of the X-bar chart. In genetic algorithm we use mutation and cross-over technique to get the optimal solution. Finally, a sensitivity analysis will be carried out to investigate the effect of model parameters on the solution of the economic design.
