The Capability Sixpack: Normal report provides a complete analysis of process stability using six charts including control charts, subgroup charts, process capability charts (both long-term and short-term), and a normal probability plot (for verifying reasonable normality). The analysis also includes only the traditional capability measures of Cp, Cpk, Pp, Ppk - it does not provide any of the standard Six Sigma performance measures (long-term Z, short-term Z, DPMO).
|When to Use||Purpose|
|Start of project||Perform a baseline capability analysis to determine process performance at the start of the project. A baseline analysis helps you set improvement goals for the project.|
|Mid-project||Perform a confirmation capability analysis after improvements have been implemented to confirm that the process performs as predicted.|
|End of project||Perform a capability analysis after implementing controls to obtain a final assessment of process capability, and also to determine whether the improvement goals of the project were attained.|
