This team project studied the hub machining process at Consolidated Metco. The parts selected is part no. 102198. Thickness of the parts had very large variations resulting quite a few scrap. The control charts were set up to detect the problem with the process. Special causes were identified. The economic and practical suggestions were made to monitor and control the process. The team also Pointed out that although SPC has been implemented for several years, the processes are still out of control. The control charts should be set up correctly and then the charts should truly be used for on-line control.
