New Concepts
- Standard Deviation
The measure of how spread out numbers are from a set of data
- Process Capability (Cp)
The capability of the process if the process
mean were to be centered between the
specification limits
Cp = (Upper Limit Lower Limit )
6

- Process Capability Index (Cpk)


What the process is capable of producing with a
given set of specification limits
Cpk = (Upper or Lower Limit - mean)
