Robot Welder: Statistic

When the robot welder is functioning properly, the natural gas cylinders being produced have an average burst strength of 3400 psi, with a standard deviation of 100 psi. Determine the centerline and the upper and lower control limits for a 3-sigma mean control chart in which each sample consists of 4 cylinders.

Samples of 12-volt batteries are taken at 30 minutes intervals during a production run. Each sample consists of 3 batteries, and a technician records how long each battery will produce-400 amperes during a standard test. Given the following data, construct a 3-sigma mean, range control charts, and evaluate whether the process is in control.
