I am trying to analyse the FTY data out of my manufacturing process (aerospace, low volume, manual). If possible I’d like some pointers with where to start. The data is most assuredly not Normal, and naturally there’s a hard limit at 100%, so any on how to interpret control charts, analysis of Pp/Cp values, etc.
Very broad question, sorry about that.0August 30, 2018 at 6:24 am #202995

For calculation of Pp/Cp values for nonnormal data see Measuring Process Capability by Bothe – Chapter 8 Measuring Capability for NonNormal Variable Data.
For regression analysis – there are no restrictions on the distributions for either the X’s or the Y’s. Applied Regression Analysis 2nd Edition, Draper and Smith pp. 1228 – or, if you are in a rush – bottom of pp22top of pp23.
For ttest’s and ANOVA – both are robust with respect to nonnormal data. The Design and Analysis of Industrial Experiments 2nd Edition Owen L. Davies pp. 5156
You should be able to get all of these books through interlibrary loan.
