"Process Capability of Adhesion Tape Test"
I am a new to the eletroplating industry. We use the tape test with 5 different grades 1 to 5 to help in deciding whether Zn adhesion is good or bad on the plate. I guess this is a pure attribute type of data that we will end up with. Hence I was wondering how to calculate the process capability for this type of data.
Is there a specific formula or method to calculate the Cp or the Cpk for attribute type of data..
If anyone could help .it will be great

Generally when you do the tape test you can take 1.00" X 1.00" square area, place your cuts @ 0.100" apart which will give you 100 boxes. Do peel test and approximately calculate area with plating peeled off v/s area plating is still adhered to. This is now your variable.
Calculate your Cp & Cpk. Based on # of Squares or to be more precise sq. inch area.
