Computing CPK for bimodal data, either large readings or zero (majority)..

Hi,

I have data points from measurements of a certain defect. The readings are either zero(majority) or high readings.

For example: How do i get the CPK if the USL is 100? Desirable is the zero reading.

Re: Computing CPK for bimodal data, either large readings or zero (majority)..

I suggest that you use the Distribution Platform, to help you determine the best way to calculate the Cp/Cpk. If you startup the Distribution Platform, and then under the red triangle, go to:

Continuous Fit==>All

it will help you determine which distribution best fits your data, and then under that distribution, it will give you the Cp/Cpk.

Re: Computing CPK for bimodal data, either large readings or zero (majority)..

jabenir, There is one fundamental question you have to answer before calculating Capability Indices: Is your process in statistical control? If the process is not in a "reasonable degree of control", then Capability Analysis is meaningless. As Dr. Wheeler says in one of his books: "What can be said for the capability of a process not I statistical control? Not much!"

Other questions that need to be answered BEFORE a Capability Analysis: Is the data you presented in time order? If not, what is the order and what does a Runs Chart and/or Process Behavior Chart look like? Can you determine defect rates for discrete periods of time with rational sub-grouping?
