Step 1.2. Build a Directory Hierarchy

As you build your configuration, you add a hierarchy of subfolders to the Products main folder, as follows:

  1. Within the Products main folder, a subfolder for each product included in the document.

  2. Within each Product subfolder are the following:

Variable QC item for each variable that will be tracked for that product and displayed on an XBar-R or XBar-S chart.

Attribute QC item for each attribute that will be tracked for that product and display on an p, nP, c or u chart.

Defect folder for each group of defects that will be tracked for a product and displayed on one Pareto chart. Included are all the defect categories that will be displayed as a bar on the group's Pareto chart.
