    I appreciate that this is a very basic question but I am new to Six Sigma and Minitab. I am looking to conduct some burst testing on new product packaging and I am currently planning the number of samples to test but don’t really know where to start.

    My aim is to take the burst test results and establish upper and lower limits to have as in process monitors using ± 3σ about the mean.

    I would like to be able to quote a 95% confidence level in results, how do I achieve this?

    Kind Regards.

    Based on your post it sounds like you have no idea where your process is or what to expect.  If that is the case then the first thing to do is just run some samples and see what you see – how many to run will be a function of the time/money/effort you are permitted to use for what will amount to a pilot study whose sole purpose will be to let you know where your process is at the moment and, assuming all is well, an initial estimate of the kind of variation you can expect under conditions of ordinary variation.
