    Be careful, what you have suggested is illegal in most US states except Arkansas.  And then only permissable between siblings.

    See here, this is how perfectly innocent people get their threads hijacked. We live in an increasingly connected world: what about said behavior elsewhere in the global environment?

    Phil, given the global opinion regarding the US, I didn’t want to take a chance and offend any of our international posters, except maybe the guys from Chile.  Easy enough to insult RD because he has a sense of humor.  Others I am not so sure of.

    Jaime,
    Plot the data on a control chart….  If you see out of control data points then the process is unstable…
    Best Regards,

    Jaime,
    To follow up on what Bob J said.  Remember, control charts can run multiple tests for being in control or not.  You’ll  have to decide which tests are appropriate.  I think the test for a point more than 3 sigmas from center is a given, but some of the other tests, I think, are a bit more “subjective”, depending on your tolerance.  At least in my experience.
    Hope this helps.

    Control charts don’t allow you to analyze unstable processes as I assume the original poster was asking.  It tells you when instability is occuring.  Root cause analysis, examining components of variation and even a multi-vari chart will allow you to identify the source.  The control chart says it is present the other tools might let you find the source.

    Thanks for your comments. I analyze control chart and I know process is unstable. I can’t use Cpk index. So, are there any index I can use for analysis?
    Gracias por su ayuda. La carta de control muestra inestabilidad del proceso y no puedo usar el Cpk como indicador de análisis. ¿Existen otros indicadores o métodos que pueda usar para su análisis?

    Unfortunately, capability analysis requires a stable process for the results to be meaningful.  Start looking for the sources of your instability using some of the tools I mentioned and once the process is stable, then capability will mean something.
