A quality inspector takes several sample measurements over time and determines the sample average assembly time is 32 an 32 sec. sec. with a standard deviation of 3 sec. a) Calculate the process capability index Calculate the process capability index b) If McDonald’s wants to achieve 3-sigma service, is this 3process capable of delivering desired service quality? How can the process be improved? can the process be improved?
