    Hello there,

    Good Day!

    I worked on a project that need to be improved, the goal is to increase FIRST PASS YIELD% of the process, i am confused because the process what im going to improve gives me DEFECTIVE count only, (eg. input = 10000 No good = 150) , the data is in descrete, the process capability I always saw were using continuous data giving ppk,Cpk etc.

    What im going to do if im asked what is the capability of that process?

    Process: Visual Inspection
    No Good defect = having Flux on the material
    Good = material without Flux

    kindly check the attached file for the raw data,

    Thank you!

    What you need to do is go out on the web and search “process capability for attribute data”. If you have access to a public library you could try to get Measuring Process Capability by Bothe through inter-library loan. Chapter 9 in that book has all the details.

    ppm defective is a fine metric

    I know that PPM is a good metric, but what is the rule for when it should be used? If we make 10 different products, some at 500 annually, some 5000 annually, do I simply use the calculation of % of defects by units produced?

    It’s truly a start. Assuming not huge differences in the cost of quality for ppm defective, pareto out the products and see where to attack first.

    @ruenincolas When you get your capability number what piece of information will you have that will move you project forward?
