5-3 Milestone Four: The Measure Phase

In 1-3 I chose the purchasing process for my company. Please see Define the problem is the first part of the research paper. Then Define phase is the second continuation. Next came Repeatablitiy and reproducibility which I did not do too good on. Please stay on topic with the first attachment because that is the introduction. See below. The actual numbers used can be an estimate you do not have to have exact amounts.

For the process you chose in 1-3, set the following values: process target (Ï ), upper specification (U), and lower specification (L). Then take appropriate samples to estimate the process mean (Âµ) and the process standard deviation (Ï ).

Calculate the following for your process:

Defectives per Million Opportunities (DPMO)

Yield

Process capability ratio (Cp)

Process capability index (Cpk)
