Capability has different goals than SPC. Capability intent is to predict number of parts out of spec, while SPC aims a stable process and with reduced variability. I think they should be separate Mlonguin 16:32, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
Process capability is also an indication of how well a process is managed to achieve its purpose. This is paraphrased from ISO 15504 which is the ISO standard for assessing process capability for IT. I have added some text and the reference to the ISO 15504 page. --Hanvanloon (talk) 07:52, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Alternatively, the creator of this page may wish to add an example. Process capability could merit its own article if the explanation were well done. One might consider a summary of process capability as presented in Doug Montgomery's Statistical Process Control book (sorry, I don't have it so I can't be more specific on publisher/year data). --Statwizard 15:05, 23 March 2006 (UTC)
