100 samples of size 5 taken from a population with an average of 23.0 and a standard deviation of 2.0.The highlighted intervals do not include the population average (there are 6 of them).For a 95% confidence level expect 5 in 100 intervals to NOT include the population average

3For a 95% confidence level expect 5 in 100 intervals to NOT include the population average.

Usually we calculate just one interval and then act as if the population mean falls within this interval.

• I t lIntervalsPoint EstimationPoint Estimation

The best estimate; eg MEAN

Interval EstimationA range which contains the true population parameter or a future observation to a certain degree of confidence.

Confidence Interval- The interval to estimate the true population parameter (e.g. the population

mean)mean).

Prediction IntervalPrediction Interval- The interval containing the next single response.

Tolerance Interval- The interval which contains at least a given proportion of the population.

• P C bilitProcess Capability33 s3s3Process capability is a measure of the

risk of failing specification. The spread of the data are compared with the width of th ifi ti

The distance from the mean to the

the specifications.

The distance from the mean to the nearest specification relative to half the process width (3s).

The index measures actual performance. Which may or may not be on target i.e., centred.

• P C bilit P k d C kProcess Capability Ppk and Cpk Ppk should be used as this is the actual risk of failing specification

Random data of mean 10 and SD 1, thus natural span 7 to 13.Added shifts to simulate trends around common average

Ppk should be used as this is the actual risk of failing specification. Cpk is the potential capability for the process when free of shifts and drifts.

I Chart of Shifted

Added shifts to simulate trends around common average.With specs at 7 and 13 process capability should be unity. When data is with trend Ppk

less than Cpk due to method of calculation of std dev.

Use Measurement Systems Analysis to assess if the assay method is fit for purpose. It is unwise to have a method where the specification interval is consumed by the
