Rediscover an understanding
Modern architects often prefer to use steel or concrete framed buildings despite the long history of brick construction dating back to Roman times. The Eiffel Tower was one of the first steel sectioned buildings to be built when it was completed in 1889. Architects often use a combination of brick and steel frame to ensure structural support, although brickwork alone can do the job quite satisfactorily. Designers should realise the importance of brickwork in structural design and use it to its full potential.

Detecting process shifts with X-bar charts
A graphical procedure for determining the approximate chances through an X-bar control chart will pinpoint a critical shift in the process average with the first subgroup, or sample, that is charted after the shift has taken place is presented. The method can also be used to calculate a crude estimate of the percentage nonconforming product that will be produced if such a shift occurs.
