We can calculate the cpk and cp for xbar control chart.. can we do the same thing for pbar? what is the formula? is cp=1pbar can represent the calculation?

If you more than 30 data points ,you can calculate the standard deviation as sqrt(p*(1p)) ( based on central limiit therom defeinition). Rest of the calculations will remain same, i am not sure whether this method of calcuating Cp is correct or not.
thanks

For example, if you are chaecking a diameter but only record good/bad, then it will be the standard deviation of the proportion of parts with “bad” diameter. But to use the Cp/Cpk formula, wht you need is the standard deviation of the diameter itself.
What you can do, at best, is (in the previous exampe) to distinguish the bad parts in “too big” and “too small”, then you have a % big and a % small that you can compare with the Z(upper) and Z(lower) for a normal distribution, and with those Z calculate Cp and Cpk (if you have a one sided tolerance you will have only one Z and only Cpk).0
