The basic premise of Six Sigma is that sources of variation can be:
A.
Identified
B.
Quantified
C.
Eliminated or controlled
D.
All of the Above
Correct Answer
D. All of the Above
Explanation Six Sigma is a methodology used to improve the quality and efficiency of processes by reducing variation. The sources of variation in a process can be identified by analyzing data and understanding the factors that contribute to it. Once the sources of variation are identified, they can be quantified by measuring their impact on the process performance. By understanding and quantifying the sources of variation, steps can be taken to eliminate or control them, thereby improving the process and reducing defects. Therefore, all of the options - identifying, quantifying, and eliminating or controlling sources of variation - are correct in the context of Six Sigma.

The Throughput Yield for six departments processing an order in series is as follows: 99.7%, 99.5%, 95%, 89%, 92.3%, and 94%. The probability of no defects acress all steps (rolled throughput yield) is:
A.
89%
B.
77%
C.
73%
D.
Approximately 30%
Correct Answer
C. 73%
Explanation The Throughput Yield for each department represents the percentage of defect-free units that pass through that specific department. To calculate the rolled throughput yield, we multiply the Throughput Yields of each department together. In this case, the rolled throughput yield is 0.997 * 0.995 * 0.95 * 0.89 * 0.923 * 0.94 = 0.7307, which is approximately 73%. Therefore, the probability of no defects across all steps is 73%.

The area under a normal curve to the right of the mean represents:
A.
3 standard deviations
B.
50% of the total area
C.
99% of the total area
D.
A and B
Correct Answer
B. 50% of the total area
Explanation The area under a normal curve to the right of the mean represents 50% of the total area. This means that half of the data falls to the right of the mean in a normal distribution. The other half of the data falls to the left of the mean. The total area under a normal curve is always equal to 100%, so if 50% of the area is to the right of the mean, then the remaining 50% must be to the left.

A Process has seven critical characteristics, in a sample of 1,000 orders the number of opportunities for defects used in calculating DPMO is:
A.
10,000
B.
1,000
C.
7,000
D.
Cannot be determined
Correct Answer
C. 7,000
Explanation In a process with seven critical characteristics, the number of opportunities for defects used in calculating DPMO is 7,000. DPMO stands for Defects Per Million Opportunities and is a measure of the number of defects that occur per one million opportunities for defects to occur. Since there are seven critical characteristics, each order has seven opportunities for defects. Therefore, in a sample of 1,000 orders, the total number of opportunities for defects is 1,000 multiplied by 7, which equals 7,000.

If a distribution is positively skewed, the mean will be
A.
Zero
B.
Less than the median
C.
Greater than the median
D.
Equal to the median
Correct Answer
C. Greater than the median
Explanation In a positively skewed distribution, the tail of the distribution is longer on the right side, meaning that there are a few extreme values pulling the mean towards the higher end. This causes the mean to be greater than the median, which is the value that divides the distribution into two equal halves. Therefore, the mean will be greater than the median in a positively skewed distribution.

A.
13.8
B.
12.8
C.
11.8
D.
10.8
Correct Answer
C. 11.8
Explanation To calculate the standard deviation, we first need to find the mean of the data set. Adding up all the numbers and dividing by the total count, we get a mean of 34. Now, for each number in the data set, we subtract the mean and square the result. These squared differences are then added up and divided by the count of numbers. Taking the square root of this result gives us the standard deviation. In this case, the calculation results in a standard deviation of 11.8.

If a distribution is positively skewed the median will be
A.
Zero
B.
Less than the Mean
C.
Greater than the Mean
D.
Equal to the Mean
Correct Answer
B. Less than the Mean
Explanation If a distribution is positively skewed, it means that the tail of the distribution is longer on the right side, indicating that there are a few extreme values that pull the mean towards the right. In this case, the median, which is the middle value of the data set, will be less than the mean. This is because the extreme values on the right side of the distribution will pull the mean towards them, making it greater than the median.

A.
13.7
B.
10.8
C.
15.8
D.
11.8
Correct Answer
A. 13.7
Explanation The correct answer is 13.7. To calculate the standard deviation, we first need to find the mean of the data set, which is (50+20+35+15)/4 = 30. Then, we subtract the mean from each data point and square the result. The squared differences are 400, 100, 25, and 225. Next, we find the average of these squared differences, which is (400+100+25+225)/4 = 187.5. Finally, we take the square root of this average to get the standard deviation, which is âˆš187.5 â‰ˆ 13.7.

Correct Answer
A. U or C Charts
Explanation The correct answer is U or C Charts. U or C Charts are appropriate for attribute data, constant subgroup sizes, and defects. U Charts are used when the number of defects per unit of measure can vary, while C Charts are used when the number of defects per unit of measure remains constant. These charts are commonly used in quality control to monitor the number of defects in a process over time.

U Chart
Correct Answer
D. U Chart
Explanation The U Chart is the appropriate control chart in this scenario because it is used for attribute data, which means data that can be categorized into distinct categories (such as defects). The U Chart is specifically designed for non-constant subgroup sizes, which is mentioned in the question. This chart is used to monitor the number of defects per unit of measurement, making it suitable for tracking defects in this case.

B. IMR Chart
Explanation The IMR (Individuals and Moving Range) chart is the appropriate control chart for Continuous or Variable Data with 1 Subgroup. This chart is used to monitor the process variation over time by plotting individual data points and the moving range between consecutive data points. It helps to detect any shifts or trends in the process, making it suitable for continuous or variable data with a single subgroup.

Correct Answer
D. Xbar R Chart
Explanation The Xbar R Chart is the appropriate control chart when dealing with Continuous or Variable Data and 10 Subgroups. This chart is used to monitor the process mean and variability over time. The Xbar chart is used to track the average of each subgroup, while the R chart is used to monitor the range or dispersion within each subgroup. By plotting these values on the control chart, any variations or shifts in the process can be easily detected and corrective actions can be taken.

Correct Answer
A. Xbar S Chart
Explanation The Xbar S Chart is the appropriate control chart for Continuous or Variable Data with 25 Subgroups. This chart is used to monitor the process mean (Xbar) and process variation (S) over time. It is suitable when the subgroup size is constant and the data is normally distributed. The Xbar S Chart helps to detect any shifts or trends in the process mean and variation, allowing for timely corrective actions to be taken if necessary.
