Question

- Food served at a restaurant should be between 38°C and 49°C
when it is delivered to the customer. The process used to keep the
food at the correct temperature has a process standard deviation of
2°C and the mean value for these temperature is 42°C.
- What is the process capability C
_{p}and C_{pk}of the process? - Is the process capable? Why or why not?
- If the process is not capable, what proportion of the product is nonconforming, assuming a normal distribution of the characteristic?

- What is the process capability C

Answer #1

Answer)

a)

the formula for C_{p} is (USL - LSL)/(6*standard
deviation)

USL = 49 and LSL = 38 and standard deviation = 2

So, C_{p} = (49-38)/12 = 0.9166666666

And the formula for C_{pk} is

minimum value of ( (USL - MEAN)/3*STANDARD DEVIATION), (MEAN - LSL)/3*STANDARD DEVIATION))

(USL - MEAN)/3*STANDARD DEVIATION) = (49-40)/(3*2) = 1.5

(MEAN - LSL)/3*STANDARD DEVIATION) = (40-38)/6 = 0.333333

minimum value of (1.5 AND 0.333) is

0.333

so, therefore, C_{pk} = 0.3

b)

When C_{pk} is less than 1, then the process is not
capable as here C_{pk} = 0.3 which is less than 1,
therefore, given process is not capable

c) As the product is not capable

the proportion of the product which is non conforming can be
calculated by multiplying C_{pk} value with 3

3*0.333 = 0.9 now we need to see the value of z corresponding to 0.9 in -z table which will be our required answer

so proportion = 0.1841

In an electrical circuit, the capacitance of a component should
be between 25 and 40 picofarads (pF). A sample of 25 components
yields a mean of 30 pF and a standard deviation of 3 pF. Calculate
the process capability index Cpk, and comment on the
process performance. If the process is not capable, what proportion
of the product is nonconforming, assuming a normal distribution of
the characteristic?

A pharmaceutical company producing vitamin capsules desires a
proportion of calcium content between 40 and 55 ppm. A random
sample of 20 capsules chosen from the output yields a sample mean
calcium content of 44 ppm with a standard deviation of 3 ppm.
Find the natural tolerance limits of the process.
If the process is in control at the present values of its
parameters what proportion of the output will be nonconforming,
assuming a normal distribution of the characteristic?

Precise Equipment Manufacturing (PEM) is an engineering company
that specialises in motor components. PEM have asked a
subcontractor to produce a number of steel rods. However, a
prerequisite for the contract is that the subcontractor can prove
that their processes are capable of meeting the customer-defined
specifications. The specifications for the rods stipulate that the
nominal length for a rod is 450.00 cm with an upper specification
limit of 450.12 cm and a lower specification limit of 449.88 cm.

BridgeRock is a major manufacturer of tires in the U.S.. The
company had five manufacturing facilities where tires were made and
another 20 facilities for various components and materials used in
tires. Each manufacturing facility produced 10,000 tires every
hour. Quality had always been emphasized at BridgeRock, but lately
quality was a bigger issue because of recent fatal accidents
involving tires made by other manufacturers due to tread
separation. All tire manufacturers were under pressure to ensure
problems did not...
