The objective of our research is to develope for process manufacturing an inferential quality control system that combines theoretical and experimental knowledge of physical processes with the judgement and experience of experts in plant operations. In this paper, we propose a quality process model, and apply the model to the continuous electrical resistance annealing of copper wire. Theory is used to develop the relationship between the control variables and measurable characteristics of the process, and experimental information is used to develop the relationships that link the process characteristics to the quality characteristics specified by the customer. The approach is illustrated by the manufacturing process, the continuous annealing of copper wire.
