The Efficient use of Quality Control Data
Accurate measurements in clinical and industrial testing are often not possible. Each measurement contains what can be regarded as uncontrollable component error, leading inevitably to some right and wrong conclusions. This book describes methods that can be used to minimise the occurrence of wrong conclusions.
The book presents simple statistical decision rules used initially to control the quality of industrial processes. These rules are used to describe concepts and the practical consequences of the use of statistical quality control. The book then proceeds to illustrate improvements in the properties of decision rules that can be achieved with appropriate choices of control rule parameters, test statistics and methods of control. These methods selectively utilise information contained in the test data that indicate when a change in quality level has occurred.
