What type of control chart should be used here and why


Team Assignment: Quality

Part A: In-Flight Crew

Although Southwest Airlines looks to provide an enjoyable and relaxing flight experience for their passengers, unfortunately, not all passengers will be satisfied at all times. There has been numerous complaints to the airline regarding the interactions with the flight crew and the overall in-flight experience.

The quality control manager at SWA wants to understand the reasons why passengers may complain about the crew or in-flight experience. Help her out by building a cause-effect (or fishbone) diagram to identify as many reasons as possible for why there may be complaints about the in-flight experience. All charts should be created in Word (I do not want any hand-drawn charts).

Part B: Delayed Flights

Southwest Airlines is quite proud of their safety record and their timely departures and arrivals. In order to determine if there is a significant change in the number of flights delayed more than 30 minutes, For three months, Southwest Airlines randomly selected 100 flights per day and reported how many were delayed by more than 30 minutes. Here is the data collected:
