MECT 3367: Quality Control Technology Required Course M &amp; W 5:30 – 7:00 PM (Spring 2010) COURSE CATALOG DESCRIPTION: Cr. 3. (3-&shy;‐0). Statistical analysis of data to establish control systems for manufacturing facilities. PREREQUISITES: MECT1364 and MATH 1330, or equivalent REQUIRED TEXTBOOK: Dale H. Besterfield; Quality Control, 8th Edition, Pearson/Prentice Hall, 2008. COURSE LEARNING OUTCOMES: At the end of the course, the student should be able to: 1) Understand the organization and responsibility for quality in a business environment. 2) Know the principles, practices, tools, and techniques of Total Quality Management. 3) Use the statistics of data distribution, central tendency, and dispersion to describe the characteristics of a sample, or a population. 4) Define control charts for variables as a means to record and correct problems as soon as they arise in a business activity. 5) Grasp the concepts of probability of events occurring in discrete and continuous data distribution. 6) Define control charts for attributes to check conformity or nonconformity to specifications 7) Know how to sample lots, or continuous production 8) Apply sampling for reliability to satisfy product life 9) Use management techniques and planning tools, based on subjective data, to improve processes. TAC-&shy;‐ABET CRITERION 3 OUTCOMES: This course covers MEET program outcomes “a”, “b”, partial “c”, “h”, “k”, “I” PERFORMANCE CRITERIA: Tests &amp; Quizzes; 50% Final – Comprehensive; 30% Homework &amp; Class work; 20% Extra Credits; 5 Points In addition to the maximum available 100 points. A term paper on the life and contributions of experts in the filed of quality; attendance in professional societies (ASQ, ASME, etc.); and class participation. Homework: a. Will be assigned at the conclusion of most lectures. b. Students are given one week to complete the homework. c. Completing all homework and turning it in due time is mandatory. d. Homework is to be done by each individual student. There will be only one community project. The student’s rules on ethics will be strictly enforced. e. Several problems will be given for each home assignment. f. Grading of the homework will depend on the complexity of the given problem. Grading will take about one week, and will be done by a T.A. under the supervision of the instructor. Any concerns regarding the grading must be addressed to the instructor .
