I don't think it will be on the exam. I have a friend in industry who
would like to base an entire intro. stats. course on quality control
ideas. I think one could do that, but one need not do that either.
It's an important topic that has important and timely applications and
can be used to get across some basic ideas, but I see it as one of
many ways to acccomplish the goals of AP stats.
