Production Process Characterization (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

Production Process Characterization (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

Created by Alan Heckert and James Filliben, this chapter of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Engineering Statistics handbook describes how to do a production process characterization study. It contains an introduction, discussion of the assumptions, information about data collection and analysis, and case studies. The author provides two different case studies and states that: "The accompanying case studies provide detailed examples of several process characterization studies." This is a nice introduction to theories of production process and then direct applications of these theories.
