Methods for Estimating Process Capability

Pre Recorded

  • 90 minutes

This webinar discusses methods for estimating process capability for both normal and non-normal data. Pre-requisites for estimating process capability (e.g. establishing process stability) are discussed first. Distributions are briefly described and methods for estimating ppm levels are presented. The use and limitations of common process capability indices (e.g. Cpk and Ppk) are discussed.

It is vital that appropriate methods are used for estimating capability when the data is not well described by a normal distribution. Failure to do so often results in overly optimistic process capability estimates. Methods for testing for normality are discussed. Both transformations and distribution fitting are presented as methods to assess capability for non-normal data. The webinar includes several examples to illustrate the methods.

In this webinar expert speaker Steven Wachs, will discuss the methods for testing for normality and both transformations and distribution fitting are presented as methods to assess capability for non-normal data. They will also understand how process capability fits into quality improvement efforts.

Session Highlights:

  • The Concepts of Process Stability and Process Capability

  • Methods for Assessing Process Capability

  • Estimating PPM

  • Calculating and Interpreting Capability Indices (Cp, Cpk, Pp, Ppk)

  • Shortcomings of Capability Indices

  • Other Process Capability metrics

  • Testing for Normality

  • Methods for handling Non-Normal Data (Distribution fitting, transforming data)

  • Improving Process Capability

Why You Should Attend:
