Book Description

Providing a single valued assessment of the performance of a process is often one of the greatest challenges to a Quality professional. Process capability indices (PCIs) precisely does this job. For processes having single measurable quality characteristic, there are ample number of PCIs, defined in literature. The situation worsens for multivariate processes, i.e. where there are more than one correlated quality characteristics. Since in most situations quality professionals face multiple quality characteristics to be controlled through a process, Multivariate Process Capability Indices (MPCIs) become order of the day. However, there is no book which addresses and explains different MPCIs and their properties. The literterature of Multivariate Process Capability Indices (MPCIs) is not well organized, in a sense that, a thorough and systematic discussion on the various MPCIs is hardly available in literature.

Handbook of Multivariate Process Capability Indices provides an extensive study on the MPCIs defined for various types of specification regions. This book is intended to help quality professionals to understand which MPCI should be used and in what situation. For researchers in this field, the book provides a thorough discussion about each of the MPCIs developed till date along with their statistical and analytical properties. Also, real life examples are provided for almost all the MPCIs discussed in the book. This helps both the researchers and the quality professionals alike to have a better understanding of the MPCIs, which otherwise, becomes difficult to understand, since there are more than one quality characteristics to be controlled at a time.

Salient Features:

• A complete guide for quality professionals on the usage of different MPCIs.

• A step by step discussion on multivariate process capability analysis, starting from a brief discussion on univariate indices.

• A single source for all kinds of MPCIs developed so far. • Comprehensive analysis of the MPCIs including analysis of real-life data.

• References provided at the end of each chapter encompasses the entire literature available on the respective topic.

• Interpretation of the MPCIs and development of threshold values of many MPCIs are also included.

This reference book is aimed at the post graduate students in industrial Statistics. It will also serve researchers working in the field of Industrial Statistics as well as for practitioners requiring a thorough guidance regarding selection of an appropriate MPCI suitable for the problem in hand.
