A common rule of thumb is that conventional control limits for X-bar and R charts, no standards given, should be based on at least 25 subgroups. This article presents information for evaluating the… Expand

This paper considers a queueing system consisting of N service channels in series where each channel has an exponential or Erlang holding time and (except for the first channel) a finite queue, and where the input process is such that the first queue is never empty.Expand

This paper provides results related to the optimal design of unpaced production lines. It has been shown previously that unbalancing an unpaced production line in an appropriate way will increase its… Expand

Some heuristic procedures for seeking a good approximate solution of any pure integer linear programming problem that are computationally feasible for problems having hundreds of variables and constraints.Expand

A previous article [9] described how a small number of subgroups can be used to set statistically sound control limits for X-bar- and R-charts. However, if the power of the charts is of paramount… Expand
