# Six Sigma Analysis: Tolerance Limits and Cpk

Not what you're looking for?

Suppose one of the key dimensions of U-bolts manufactured for a particular customer is 10.75 +/- 0.25. To qualify the process, you built 120 u-bolts and obtained the following data.

Statistic U-Bolt Measurement

Mean 10.717

Standard Error 0.00793

Median 10.7

Mode 10.65

Standard Deviation 0.0868

Sample Variance 0.007541842

Kurtosis -0.537525

Skewness -0.0420018

Range 0.04

Minimum 10.5

Maximum 10.9

Sum 1286.05

Count 120

(a) Estimate the likelihood that a U-bolt will be produced with a measurement that exceeds the upper tolerance limits.

(b) Since the process mean is not centered between the tolerance limits, compute Cpk

(c) Interpret the results from (ii), and comment about the capability of this process to meet customer requirements?
