Scatter Plot
• The Scatter Plot is very
useful to view the correlation between different kind of aspects which affect the company. One example of this is to relate the number of sales of swimming trunks with the months of the year.
Month J F M A M J J A S O N D Sales 3 2 100 30 75 3000 1500 1000 3 6 8 1

Control charts
• We can use them to measure
some sorts of quality of the clothes like the resistance of the seams.
• The quality of article is a
random variable and the percentage of articles defectives depends of the distribution of these random variables.

Flow Chart
• A can be very useful in our
own company, for example for to give advise to our employees about how to behave in front of potential customers
says a tiny changes in our stores can achieve some effects which will increase the sales. For example if in the places where there are male clothes there are woman helping and vice-versa the sales will increase.
