Enter the width of the tolerance in number of standard deviations (σ). By default, the tolerance is 6 standard deviations wide (3 standard deviations on each side of the process mean).
You can enter one value, multiple values, or a column of values. If you enter one value, it applies to all variables or groups. If you enter multiple values or a column of values, the values correspond sequentially to the columns that you entered in Variables or to the groups in the By variables column.
Minitab interprets the K value as the width of a two-sided tolerance. If you want to use a one-sided tolerance, enter a two-sided tolerance value that is twice that of the one-sided tolerance. For example, if you want to use a one-sided tolerance of 3σ, enter 6.
If you want the tolerance value that you enter to be the default setting for every capability analysis that you perform, choose
and enter the default tolerance.
