Evaluate 5.2 Problem 17

Management at Webster, in Problem 16, is now concerned as to whether caulking tubes are being properly capped. If a significant proportion of the tubes are not being sealed, Webster is placing its customers in a messy situation. Tubes are packaged in large boxes of 144. Several boxes are inspected, and the following numbers of leaking tubes are found (see attached table). Calculate p-chart three sigma control limits to assess whether the capping process is in statistical control.
