Process capability is an important concept for industrial managers to understand. The challenge in today’s competitive markets is to be on the leading edge of producing high quality products at minimum costs. This cannot be done without a systematic approach and such approach is contained within what has been called ‘statistical quality control ’or‘ Industrial statistics’. The segment of statistical quality control discussed here is the process capability study. So why process capability so important? Because, it facilitates to manufacturer of a part are an important determination of a cost and quality of the resulting production. If the processing equipment selected is sufficiently accurate to meet quality target as established by tolerance reasonable costs and acceptable quality can be expected. If the processing equipment cannot consistently meet the quality target, high costs, scrap and reworked materials are inevitable outcomes.
