# Determine if any points are out-of-control. If so, remove those data points and recalculate the limits. Once you have your limits, collect at five more data points and comment on whether or not the process is in control. Explain why.

In this assignment you need to consider a measure or metric that you want to track or improve upon. It needs to be something that you can measure and is relevant to either your work or personal life. The measurement may be one that is already tracked at your place of employment or a measurement that you track in order to monitor your personal or professional progress; something such as tracking your weight or blood pressure. More personal examples are: time to travel to work or school, dollars spent on groceries each week, number of missed calls each day, average wait time at a fast food restaurant. In the workplace you could measure number of errors made, number of requests for information, number of hours spent at the copier, number of documents that you print on a daily basis, number of daily emails. Watch the introductory video which discusses more details regarding this assignment and provides examples. Click to view Whatever you choose to measure, you will need at least 25 data points, i.e collect data at 25 different times. From these 25 points, calculate the control limits; either for X-bar and R chart or a p-chart. Determine if any points are out-of-control. If so, remove those data points and recalculate the limits. Once you have your limits, collect at five more data points and comment on whether or not the process is in control. Explain why. Comment on whether or not you found this assignment interesting and useful. This assignment must be done using excel and the excel file submitted in canvas. Include your write-up in the excel file. Refer to the videos in the week 3 module for ideas in the workplace, specifically the one for the healthcare industry. See this link if you are collecting variable data and one sample for every point in time. You can’t use the X-bar formulas provided in the book, you have to do a moving average and there is no R chart: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shewhart_individuals_control_chart (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. Watch the video on calculating a moving range chart. Refer to the excel file for control chart examples. You can use this as a template.
