In order to state savings you need to know the “before” value of the project. Use the exact same method you used to calculate that figure and apply it to the process as it exists now. Subtract that value from the other value. Before – after = savings.
Here is a link to Hon’s stock board discussion on Yahoo. Some of the employees have a different spin.
Process capability is calculated from subgroups all the time. In addition, there is not enough information to conclude that insufficient data exist. I would argue that 36 consecutive samples are certainly sufficient to calculate the standard deviation. Once you know that you can make any number of informed decisions about the process.
Were the 36 samples consecutive? Was the process adjusted during the sampling process? Non-consecutive samples taken off-line that may be subject to adjustment would be of limited value in calculating capability.
Boy you told me, huh? In case youre interested, here are facts demonstrating that you are wrong:

In that regard, I’d like to differ with one of your comments. *Politicians* are not the same all over the world – *people* are. In my country politicians have to earn their office through free and fair…[Read more]
Cost is what attracts business to China – period. The fact of the matter is that China’s vast consumer market is not open to foreign companies – unless those companies produce the product they wish to sell in China.
I wonder what makes Communist China any less dangerous to the Western world than the former USSR? I wonder if Cold War “victory”…[Read more]
Given the feature size, a standard deviation of .0049″ from a machining operation is extremely high. If such variation is acceptable to you, you might consider changing the feature to “as cast” and eliminating the machining operation since it seems that the groove can serve no purpose other than clearance with such high variation.
