Book Description

This book provides a thorough literature review on Multivariate Process Capability Indices. It discusses the various aspects and methodologies associated with the subject in one place. Several real-life data sets have been used to show the applications of different methodologies. The proposed book contains sixteen chapters and would be beneficial for researchers, teachers and practitioners.
