The aim of this paper is to consider the effect of gauge measurement capability on the multivariate process capability index (MCp).
With respect to measurement capability, the paper investigates the statistical properties of the estimated MCp and considers the effect of gauge measurement capability on the lower confidence bound, hypothesis testing, critical value and power of testing for MCp at the mentioned state.
The results show that gauge measurement capabilities will notably change the results of estimating and testing the process capability index.
The research would help quality experts to determine whether their processes meet the required capability, and to make more reliable decisions.
