14.2 File ‘VITA_C’

Pharmaceutical companies must fulfil the European Pharmacopoeia standards that among other requirements dictate that the probability that the weight of a pill deviates at least 5% from its target value must be less than 0.5%.
To carry out a capability study of the production process of pills with target value of 3.25 g., samples of 5 units are taken every 15 minutes during 10 hours. The file VITA_C.MTW contains measures corresponding to the weights of 200 sampled pills. Our purpose is to find out if the process is capable to meet this requirement.
