MANUFACTURING QUALITY DENSITY, CONTROL AND MAINTENANCE.

Abstract

A measure of quality density in manufacturing is expressed in terms of a manufacturing process propensity to 'output' units which are defectives, as a function of the manufactured production output, the manufacturing deterioration process, maintenance, quality control, and generally the risks a manufacturing process is subjugated to. Particularly, we assume that the production process induces 'shocks' which lead to poorer manufactured quality, while maintenance efforts are continually being employed to restore the process propensity to produce units of better quality. Quality control is used then to monitor the output quality of units produced. Using a methodology of level crossing in stochastic point processes, the stationary probability distribution of a manufactured output quality is defined.
