Reliability of a product is highly dependent on the process capability index of the manufacturing process. Discusses a mathematical modelling technique for deriving the relationship between the product reliability strength and the process capability requirement to meet the product reliability strength for different types of external stress/load distributions which the product undergoes in the actual working environment. Considers four cases of external stress distributions: normal, log‐normal, expotential and Weibull. These techniques can be applied effectively in industrial production plants while selecting machines with required process capability to meet the product reliability strength demand.
