Event description


"Capability Indices: Are They Really Capable?"

Overview: Customers have forced onto their suppliers the classic Ppk and Cpk capability requirements - yet, few understand the limited application or meaning of these indices. Many automotive customers are oblivious to the limitations specified in their own AIAG manuals!

Stop...take a breath...and discover what is really going on with capability indices. Find out what their value - if any - really is! Presentation includes case studies concerning capability analysis of non-normal characteristics.
