Process Capability Indices for Logistic Regression Profile

Journal Article

A profile is a relationship between a response variable and one or more independent variables that can describe the quality of a process or product. On the other side, for an in‐control process, capability indices are the criteria for process quality improvement that allows meeting customer expectations. Recently, evaluating the process capability of profiles has been investigated by some researchers. In all of these efforts, the response variable in the profile follows a normal distribution. However, sometimes, this assumption is violated, and the response variable may follow a binary or binomial distribution. In this paper, we propose two methods to measure the process capability when the quality of a process is characterized by a logistic regression profile. The performance of the proposed indices is evaluated through simulation studies. Finally, the application of the proposed methods is illustrated through a real case.
