Quality Management

From your local grocery store or a convenience store, purchase two bags of 12.6oz (non-peanut) of M&M’s candies and mix them together to create one large sample. Use the worksheet in Minitab to
report the following:
1. Colors: What colors did you find in your sample and how many candy units per color? (2 points)
2. Defects: How many defects did you find? (2points)
3. Display a bar chart of the number of each color found in your sample (2points)
4. Display a Pareto chart of the number of defects found in your sample (2points)
In a word document, perform the following tasks and answer the following questions:

1. Copy and Paste your bar chart of color into the Word document and interpret the result. For example, what color did you find most frequently in your sample? (2points)
2. Copy and paste your Pareto chart of defects here and interpret the results. For example, what defect did you find most frequently? (2points)
3. What type of data is the color of a sample of candy? Why? (1point)
4. What type of data is the number of defects found in a sample of candy? Why? (1point)
5. What type of data is the weight of each M&M candy bag? Why? (1point)
6. What do you think the cause of the most frequent defect might be? (1point)
7. What quality tool would you recommend for analyzing and finding the cause of the most frequent defect? Why? (2points)
8. What is the role of a checksheet in data collection? (2points)
