QSO 645 Quality Control Tools Journal Guidelines and Rubric
The Alzemoxi project team has completed its quality planning and quality assurance work. Customers and stakeholders have been identified and prioritized.
Project requirements have been identified and prioritized. Standards and metrics have been developed. The company?s quality system has been assessed and
revised to ensure it can support the project.
The project is well underway. The Alzemoxi drug has successfully passed animal testing and phase 1 study in humans. The drug is currently in phase 2 of human
testing. The data from some of the quality metrics for this phase is provided below.
Prepare and analyze the data using the following quality control tools:
Pareto Chart (Data Set 1)
Cause-and-Effect Diagram (Data Set 2)
Scatter Diagram (Data Set 3)
Control Chart (Data Set 4)
Data Set 1 ? Pareto Chart
Patients who received Alzemoxi reported a number of side effects:
Nausea & Vomiting
Shortness of Breath
Tingling in Extremities
Number of Patients Reported
Data Set 2 ? Cause-and-Effect Diagram
The team is having difficulty recruiting a sufficient number of patients for the testing. Patients or health care providers have given several reasons for declining
Study will take too much time
Clinic is difficult to reach:
Patients not able to drive
Want to make sure the patient gets actual drug rather than a placebo
Concerned about several side effects:
Don?t want to be ?poked or prodded?
Fear of unknown secondary impacts:
Development of other health issues
No impact ? Waste of time
Data Set 3 ? Scatter Diagram
Project researches are using the combined assessment instrument to measure the change in the severity of symptoms in each patient 6 months after treatment
starts and just before treatment starts. Researchers are also giving different amounts of the drug to patients to determine the optimal dosage. Below are both
data points for 20 randomly selected patients who received Alzemoxi.

Data Set 4 ? Control Chart
Patient attrition is a concern in clinical studies. Patients move, die (from the disease, the treatment, or unrelated factors), or stop participating for unknown
reasons. If too many patients drop out, the data is not reliable. Below is the attrition data for the first year of the phase 2 testing. Assume the standard deviation

Calculate the mean.
Calculate the UCL and LCL.
Construct a control chart on the data set, mean, and standard deviation.
Decide whether the clinical study is producing reliable data based on the patient dropout data.
Journals are private between the student and the instructor. Approach these activities as (a) an opportunity to reflect upon and apply what you learn each week
based on the assigned readings, discussions, and activities, and (b) an opportunity to share your knowledge and expertise based on your educational and
professional experiences in the past. As a successful professional, you will need good reflective and writing skills. Journal activities offer you the opportunity to
further develop these skills. For more information about Blackboard blogs and journals, review these tutorials.
Instructor Feedback: This activity uses an integrated rubric in Blackboard. Students can view instructor feedback in the Grade Center. For more information,
