This paper proposes a new method to estimate the process capability for a profile geometric tolerance as defined by the ASME Y14.5 standard. The novelty of the method is that it uses the known process capability of a given geometry to predict, using the order statistics theorem, new capabilities for different geometries of higher or lower complexity. By considering the geometrical complexity of mechanical parts, a manufacturing process may be capable (e.g., Cpk > 1.5) for parts with simple geometry and incapable (e.g., Cpk < 1) for parts with complex geometry. In the proposed model, the process capability becomes a mathematical function of both the statistical behavior of the process (e.g., expectation and variance) and the geometric complexity of manufactured surfaces. Three experimental case studies are presented to illustrate the usefulness and the validity of the developed model.
