ST: 4.5. Calculate how much data is outside the specifications

Revision Date: 2005-09-07

As indicated in the previous step, some of the distribution is outside the specification limit. The question is, how much? To determine the percentage that falls outside the specification limits, it is necessary to find how many estimated standard deviations exist between the overall average and each specification limit. The number of standard deviations is known as the Z value. Z values are used to determine the percentage of output that is outside the specification limits using the “Standard normal distribution table.”

4.5.1. Find the percentage above the upper specification.

4.5.2. Find the percentage below the lower specification.

4.5.3. Determing the total percentage outside the specifications
