Frozen orange juice concentrate is packed in 6-oz cardboard cans. These cans are formed on a machine by spinning them from cardboard stock and attaching a metal bottom panel. A can is then inspected to determine whether, when filled, the liquid could possible leak either on the side seam or around the bottom joint. If this occurs a can is considered nonconforming. The data were collected as 30 samples of 50 cans each at half-hour intervals over a three-shift period in which the machine was in continuous operation. From sample 15 used a new bacth of cardboard stock was punt into production. Sample 23 was obtained when an inexperienced operator was temporarily assigned to the machine. After the first 30 samples, a machine adjustment was made. Then further 24 samples were taken from the process.
A data frame with 54 observations on the following 4 variables:
