1. Process Capability Studies Comparison of Process Output to Product Requirements Lynn Taylor – OISM 470W Section 002

2. Process Capability Studies3 Steps • Gauge Capability • Process Characteristics • Stability • Normality • Control • Process Capability Analysis • Comparison of process output(s) to requirements.

3. Process Capability StudiesDefinitions • Process – Work performed on a set of inputs to produce a result. • Capability – The predictable result(s) of a process allowed to operate without outside interference. • Process Capability Study – Comparison of process output(s) to product requirements.

4. Process Capability StudiesUses In Our Plant • Customer 1 < 407, Cpk > 1.25 • Customer 1 > 407, Cpk > 1.50 • Customer 2, Cpk > 1.33 • With new clients, determine if tolerances are reasonable, if our processes are capable and robust, and if improvements are needed.

5. Process Capability StudiesStep 1 – Gauge Capability Six Measures • Gauge Accuracy • Are the readings correct? • Gauge Linearity • Are the readings correct over the measurement range of the instrument? • Gauge Stability • Does the gauge return similar values over time?

6. Process Capability StudiesStep 1 – Gauge Capability Six Measures • Gauge Repeatability • Does one operator return a similar result time after time (gauge variability)? • Gauge Reproducibility • Do different operators return similar results? • Gauge Repeatability and Reproducibility • Total variability of a test result (operator & gauge).

7. Process Capability StudiesStep 2 – Process Characteristics Analyze Process Data • Normality – Evidenced by the descriptive statistics skewness and kurtosis. • Stability – The absence of shifts or trends over time. • Control – Control chart analysis passing tests for special causes.
