Abstract:Control charts and capability analyses created to provide proof of process control and process capability assume data follow a normal distribution, but this is not the case and standard calculations can therefore be incorrect. This problem can be solved by transforming data to follow the normal transformation or by using an appropriate non-normal distribution model.
