# The no. of defects in 20 pieces of cloth each of 100 meter length is given below: 2, 1, 3, 3, 1, 6, 4, 3, 7, 10, 2, 2, 6, 4, 3, 2, 1, 5, 6, 4. Draw the appropriate control chart and interpret the result.

### This Is a Certified Answer

Certified answers contain reliable, trustworthy information vouched for by a hand-picked team of experts. Brainly has millions of high quality answers, all of them carefully moderated by our most trusted community members, but certified answers are the finest of the finest.
Application of statistics for management.    see diagram.

A Control chart is made for decision making by management reviewing the value of statistic if it is outside the threshold limits.

statistic here is number of defects: x.    we have N = 20

Average of x = μ = sum/N = 75/20 = 3.75
Standard deviation of x = σ = 2.657
Standard error = σ_ε = σ/√20 = 0.5916

Warning levels for x :
x = μ + 2 * σ_ε   = 4.9332       and  μ - 2 * σ_ε  = 2.5668

A piece is accepted with a warning if
μ - 3 * σ_ε < x < μ - 2 * σ_ε    or    μ + 2 σ_ε  < x < μ + 3 σ_ε

Accepted range :
μ - 3 * σ_ε  <  x  <  μ + 3 * σ_ε
1.9752 < x < 5.5248

Rejection threshold levels:  control limits.
rejected if    :    x > μ + 3 σ_ε          or  x < μ - 3 σ_ε

So the pieces  with number of defects :  1,  6, 7, 10, will be sent for quality assurance and process verification, the cause analysis.

Normally, for a good process, 99.7% of the values should be between the control limits.  Here we have 8 values of 20 being outside the control range.

The manufacturing process needs to be reviewed.
