control charts, process capability indices, cement industry.



The aim of this study is to apply a quality control chart which is based on the process capability indices Cp or Cpk, for online process control. This chart determine the statistical state of the process and determine the process capability for producing items conforming to the specifications simultaneously .This chart is simple to apply and does not warrant and tedious computations as well as save the time for monitoring the process quality. This chart was applied through experimental test results obtained from cement manufactory, Beni- Suef, Egypt. This chart proved to be effective for monitoring the process performance. Therefore, this chart can be used as a quality tool in industrial applications for optimizing the manufacturing process quality control.
