Comparing process capability : a c pk ratio approach
Quality control is an important aspect in the production of goods, which relies heavily on statistical methods. There are many approaches to testing the quality levels of a single production characteristic. This thesis gives a brief description of some of these including Shewart Control Charts, cp and Cpk These measures are used quite frequently with single-line production. This thesis focuses on two same-product factory lines by analyzing the relationship C(1)pk / C(2)pk Using this relationship, it is possible to test whether both factor lines are equally capable of producing the product. The thesis centers on a program which generates the distribution of C^(1)pk / C^(2)pk using a simulation approach with 2500 observations. The thesis explains how to use the program as well as the logic of the program.
