- You are attempting to purchase a part from a speciality vendor. Your company requires a Cp of at least 1.67 on a critical dimension of the part. The dimensional specification for this part is 12.5 .25 mm. What is the maximum process variability the vendor can allow in this dimension and meet your requirements?
- You are currently working with a supplier who is producing a shaft whose diameter specification is 6.00 .003 inches. Currently, the process is yielding shafts with mean diameter of 5.999 inches and a standard deviation of .00075 inches. Is this supplier currently meeting, or capable of meeting, a minimum capability requirement of 1.33?
Strategic Sourcing and Purchasing Management
- Your organization purchases bottles of a popular commercial solvent for resale. Each bottle is labelled as containing 32 fluid ounces of the solvent. Your contract specifies that each bottle must contain 32 .125 ounces of the specified solvent. Recently, you have noticed that some bottles appear to be out of specification. Obviously, the most significant problem is bottles do not contain at least 31.875 ounces of solvent. The results of a study of the bottle-filling process indicate an average of 31.995 ounces of solvent in each bottle with a standard deviation of approximately .075 ounces. Based on this information, what proportion of filled bottles are out of specification?
