Process and Measurement System Capability Analysis
Capability Studies, or process capability analysis, involves evaluating production processes to determine whether or not those processes are capable of meeting certain specifications or requirements. Throughout production of goods and materials, one of the most important concerns with many quality systems is ensuring the process as a whole is within a minimum and maximum numerical value determined by this analysis.
The precision measurement group at Cross has a team of specialists with years of experience offering process capability analysis to help you determine whether or not your process is where you need it to be. Utilizing knowledge in statistical process control (SPC), our team can determine values for your process which can help you maintain consistent output of quality products.

Inspection and Process Accuracy
Process capability studies are a necessary tool for many manufacturers. They use data from an initial production run to forecast the ability of a process to consistently produce within defined specifications. Without them, manufacturers can run into production problems in both the short and the long term. These dimensions are measured in terms of potential capability (Cp) and actual capacity during production (Cpk).
These process capability indices are used to describe the capability of a process and determine if it is capable of producing within the desired parameters. For many in the industrial world, this is a necessary step for production forecasting.
Knowing the capabilities of your process is beneficial for your production for many reasons. That’s why at Cross Precision Measurement, it’s something we recommend to a wide range of our customers. Get the analysis you need from the precision measurement experts at Cross.
Benefits of Process Capability Analysis
The importance of process capability analysis can’t be overstated for many operations in the industrial world. Process capability studies allow manufacturers to determine stability and capability of their process in the short-term. When that process is in statistical control, it can be used to predict how well a process will perform in the long-term. This knowledge can be invaluable.
Imagine not having an accurate metric to judge long-term process stability. Production may be going well in the beginning, but after a certain period, problems begin to arise. This leads to a halt in production and unexpected downtime. Which in turn can lead to a loss of end-user trust, day-to-day productivity, and ultimately revenue for the operation. These are all things we work with our customers to avoid through accurate capability analyses.
We’ll work directly with you and your production process to accurately determine a control sample and forecast future production potential. Know the long-term stability and capabilities of your process with accurate process capability studies performed by the experts at Cross Precision Measurement.
Always Know Your Status
When you’re working with a complex process, it’s important to have a means of keeping track of equipment calibration, location, and maintenance schedule. Knowing these things can help you ensure ongoing production success and avoid unnecessary downtime.
At Cross, we also understand the importance of reporting and tracking in industrial processes. That’s why we offer GageSuite, our award-winning, cloud-based comprehensive reporting system for all your calibration, equipment tracking, and certification needs.
