You are a Project Manager working on a project to create safe electric motors for Tessla introducing a new electric car. Your company’s president is keenly interested in the project and requests a chart that shows the number of defects by type ordered by their frequency of occurrence. Which type of chart would BEST meet this request?

A. Pareto diagram B. Control chart C. Statistical sampling D. Scatter diagram

You are a Project Manager working on a project to create high efficiency electric motors for a company introducing a new electric golf cart. Your company’s president is keenly interested in the project and requests a chart that shows the number of defects by type ordered by their frequency of occurrence. Which type of chart would BEST meet this request?

A. Pareto diagram B. Control chart C. Statistical sampling D. Scatter diagram

You are a project manager who is in charge of an important project for your company. The project includes producing widgets for your customer. Data has been collected to help identify the greatest causes of defects in the overall process. Which technique should you use to determine the correlation between two variables being analyzed?

A. Statistical sampling B. Pareto chart C. Scatter diagram D. Control chart

The method used in the plan quality management process to identify the factors that may influence specific variables of a product under development is known as:

A. The forecasting technique B. The control chart C. The statistical sampling D. The design of experiments

A control chart is used to determine whether or not a process is stable or has predictable performance. When a process is within acceptable limits, the process need not be adjusted. What are the upper and lower control limits usually set as?

A. + / – 3 sigma B. + / – 6 sigma C. + / – 2 sigma D. + / – 1 sigma

You are analyzing the risk in a project and decide to do sensitivity analysis to determine which risks have the most potential impact on the project. You look at a tool to help compare the relative importance of variables that have a high degree of uncertainty to those that are more stable. One such tool is:

A. Beta Distribution B. Multicriteria decision analysis C. Control Chart D. Tornado Diagram

A project manager used a control chart to determine whether a process was stable or not, and to determine if its performance was predictable. He determined the upper and lower specification limits based on the contractual requirements. A set of eighteen data points were taken. Of these, 8 consecutive data points were above the mean. What can you say about such a process?

A. A process is considered as out of control if five consecutive data points are above or below the mean. Hence the process is out of control. B. A process is considered as out of control if six consecutive data points are above or below the mean. Hence the process is within control. C. A process is considered as being within control if less than half the data points are above or below the mean. Hence the process is within control. D. A process is considered as out of control if seven consecutive data points are above or below the mean. Hence the process is out of control.

D. A process is considered as out of control if seven consecutive data points are above or below the mean. Hence the process is out of control.

On a control chart, if six consecutive plot points are above the mean, then what can be established about the process?

A. The process is out of control B. The process will be out of control after plotting the seventh point. C. The process is in control D. Nothing can be established
