AbstractConsider the monitoring of an ongoing production process subject to complete inspection. Inferior quality products are either reworked or scrapped to assure good outgoing quality. Whenever the quality characteristic of a product exceeds a predetermined action limit, remedial action is taken to restore the process to an in-control state. In addition, the decision maker has a learning opportunity to improve the process by investing in resources to identify and eliminate the causes of deviation from the target quality. Taking a learning action would improve the mean value of the quality characteristic of items produced in an out-of-control state. This paper proposes a cost model to determine the optimal number of learning actions to be taken and the optimal action limit. The model considers the trade-off between quality cost and process improvement cost.
