Identify, describe, and apply the elements of designing and conducting process capability studies.

Process Performance vs. Specification
Distinguish between natural process limits and specification limits.

Process Capability Indices
Define and calculate Cp and Cpk, and assess process capability.

Process Performance Indices
Define and calculate Pp, Ppk, and assess process performance.

Short-Term vs. Long-Term Capability
Describe the assumptions and conventions.

Process Capability for Attributes Data
Compute the Sigma level for a process and describe its relationship to Ppk.
