Piston ring diameter data

An engine manufacturer uses a forging process to make piston rings. The quality engineers want to assess the process capability. They collect 25 subgroups of five piston rings and measure the diameters. The specification limits for piston ring diameter are 74.0 mm ± 0.05 mm.

You can use this data to demonstrate Normal Capability Analysis or other analyses that use normally distributed data.

Worksheet column Description
