Process capability analysis is a major concept and a must study for professionals looking forward having a firm knowledge on Minitab with Statistics. Minitab is a popular tool that allows one to perform various statistical calculations such as normality test, process capability analysis and so on. Let’s discuss about the same in this post.

What is Process Capability Analysis?

Process capability is the ability to produce products or provide services that meet specifications defined by the customer’s needs. As for example: a bottle manufacturer requires that the cap of the bottle should require between 10 and 30 unit of Torque to open the cap of the bottle. Capability analysis reveals how well the manufacturing process meets these specifications, and provides insight into how to improve the process and sustain the improvements.

Step 4: Click on non-normal (or normal), enter the details required for conducting the capability analysis and then click Ok.
