Statistical method from the viewpoint of quality control by
Walter A Shewhart(
Book
)
34 editions published between 1939 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The application of statistical methods in mass production make possible the most efficient use of raw materials and manufacturing processes, economical production, and the highest standards of quality for manufactured goods. In this classic volume, based on a series of groundbreaking lectures given to the Graduate School of the Department of Agriculture in 1938, Dr. Shewhart illuminated the fundamental principles and techniques basic to the efficient use of statistical method in attaining statistical control, establishing tolerance limits, presenting data, and specifying accuracy and precision. In the first chapter, devoted to statistical control, the author broadly defines the three steps in quality control: specification, production, and inspection; then outlines the historical background of quality control. This is followed by a rigorous discussion of the physical and mathematical states of statistical control, statistical control as an operation, the significance of statistical control and the future of statistics in mass production. Chapter II offers a thoughtprovoking treatment of the problem of establishing limits of variability, including the meaning of tolerance limits, establishing tolerance limits in the simplest cases and in practical cases, and standard methods of measuring. Chapter III explores the presentation of measurements of physical properties and constants. Among the topics considered are measurements presented as original data, characteristics of original data, summarizing original data (both by symmetric functions and by Tchebycheff's theorem), measurement presented as meaningful predictions, and measurement presented as knowledge. Finally, Dr. Shewhart deals with the problem of specifying accuracy and precision {u2014} the meaning of accuracy and precision, operational meaning, verifiable procedures, minimum quantity of evidence needed for forming a judgment and more. Now available for the first time in this inexpensive paperbound format, this highly respected study will be welcomed by mathematics students, engineers, researchers in industry and agriculture {u2014} anyone in need of a lucid, wellwritten explanation of how to regulate variable and maintain control over statistics in order to achieve quality control over manufactured products, crops, and data

Economic control of quality of manufactured product by
Walter A Shewhart(
Book
)
45 editions published between 1931 and 1997 in 4 languages and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When Walter A. Shewhart (the father of modern quality control) described his book as " ... an indication of the direction in which future developments may be expected to take place," could he have foreseen its enormous impact? This monumental work laid the foundation for this modern quality control discipline, and it remains as current today as ever. It began as an attempt to develop a scientific basis for attaining economic control of quality through the establishment of control limits to indicate when the quality of product is varying more than is economically desirable. In his search for better knowledge of economy in manufacture, Shewhart touches upon all aspects of statistical quality control. The book includes a presentation of the fundamental concepts and advantages of statistical control; ways of expressing quality of product (a section containing a discourse that has been described as a masterpiece on the meaning of quality); the basis for specification of quality control; sampling fluctuations in quality; allowable variability in quality (which contains the first fully developed use of control charts); and quality control in practice. This is required reading for anyone seriously interested in the study of quality control."Publisher description
