Once sound has been identified as an important product feature, it becomes necessary to ensure that the sound levels of the product remain within the desired specification. A method for developing a sound audit program for a high-volume product is presented. The audit program is based on the use of statistical process control techniques. The sound audit program is used to monitor sound performance, improve quality control, and as an aid in the design of new products and new manufacturing processes.
