Managing Grading Matrix Tiles
The Grading Matrix tile displays a table of grading ranks for data streams (partprocessfeature combinations) in the currently selected parameter set. For more information about grading, please see Understanding Grading.
When you select the parameter set on the dashboard, it will affect the contents of this tile.

In the aggregated dashboard toolbar, select Add Tile and then select the Grading Matrix tile.

In the Grading Matrix tile, you can do the following:

Viewing Data Streams
Using this procedure, you will view the list of data streams in a table cell.

In the Grading Matrix tile, locate the desired table cell, and then select the counter for the desired data stream grading.
The Stream Details Table opens.

In the Stream Details Table, select More and then select Configure Columns.

In the Configure Columns dialog box, select the desired tab and then select the desired columns:

Stream Information
 LSL. Lower Specification Limit.
 USL. Upper Specification Limit.
 Subgroup Count. Total number of subgroups.
 Piece Count. Total number of measurement values.

Mean. Arithmetic average of a given data set, where N represents the number of values in the data set. Formula

SD(ST). Shortterm process variation estimated from either the withinsubgroup standard deviation (for n > 1) or moving standard deviation (for n = 1) of the subgroups. Formula

SD (LT). Variation representing the average deviation of values from their mean, often called the RMS (root mean square) method of calculating sigma. Formula

Potential

LSL(Z). Lower specification limit expressed in units of shortterm standard deviations from the distribution mean. Also known as Z score or Z value. If the lower specification limit is larger than the mean, the LSL(Z) will be a negative number. Formula

USL(Z). Upper specification limit expressed in units of shortterm standard deviations from the distribution mean. Also known as Z score or Z value. If the upper specification limit is smaller than the mean, the USL(Z) will be a negative number. Formula
 Weighted Fraction < LSL. Projected fraction fallout below Lower Specification Limit. Statistic is weighted based on piece count and shortterm standard deviation.
 Weighted Fraction > USL. Projected fraction fallout above Upper Specification Limit. Statistic is weighted based on piece count and shortterm standard deviation.
 Fraction < LSL. Projected fraction fallout below Lower Specification Limit based on shortterm standard deviation.
 Fraction > USL. Projected fraction fallout above Upper Specification Limit based on shortterm standard deviation.
 PDPM. Potential Defects Per Million. Statistic is based on projected fallout on either side of the specification based on shortterm standard deviation.
 Yield. Percentage of potential good pieces from total pieces measured based on shortterm standard deviation.
 Cpk. 2D Chart. Capability ratio that is adjusted for noncentered processes, using shortterm standard deviation, comparing the specification limit spread to the spread of the variation of the data stream. Cpk is equal to the smaller of Cpu or Cpl. Formula


Potential (Centered Process)
 Spec(Z). Specification limit expressed in units of shortterm standard deviations from the distribution mean. Also known as Z score or Z value. Because the process is assumed to be centered, the Spec(Z) will be identical for both the USL and LSL.
 Weighted Fraction OOS. Projected fraction fallout. Statistic is weighted based on piece count and shortterm standard deviation.
 Fraction OOS. Projected fraction fallout based on shortterm standard deviation.
 PDPM. Potential Defectives Per Million. Statistic is based on projected fallout on either side of the specification and shortterm standard deviation.
 Yield. Percentage of potential good pieces from total pieces measured based on shortterm standard deviation.

Cp. 2D Chart. Capability ratio using shortterm standard deviation, comparing the specification limit spread to the spread of the variation of the data stream. Formula

Expected

LSL(Z). Lower specification limit expressed in units of longterm standard deviations from the distribution mean. Also known as Z score or Z value. If the lower specification limit is larger than the mean, the LSL(Z) will be a negative number. Formula

USL(Z). Upper specification limit expressed in units of longterm standard deviations from the distribution mean. Also known as Z score or Z value. If the upper specification limit is smaller than the mean, the USL(Z) will be a negative number. Formula
 Weighted Fraction < LSL. Projected fraction fallout below Lower Specification Limit. Statistic is weighted based on piece count and longterm standard deviation.
 Weighted Fraction > USL. Projected fraction fallout above Upper Specification Limit. Statistic is weighted based on piece count and longterm standard deviation.
 Fraction < LSL. Projected fraction fallout below Lower Specification Limit based on longterm standard deviation.
 Fraction > USL. Projected fraction fallout above Upper Specification Limit based on longterm standard deviation.
 DPM. Defectives Per Million. Statistic is based on projected fallout on either side of the specification and longterm standard deviation.
 Yield. Percentage of potential good pieces from total pieces measured based on longterm standard deviation.

Ppk. 2D Chart. Capability ratio that is adjusted for noncentered processes, using longterm standard deviation, comparing the specification limit spread to the spread of the variation of the data stream. Ppk is equal to the smaller of Ppu or Ppl. Formula


Stream Grading
 Grade. A grading rank with nine potential outcomes (A1, A2, A3, B1, B2, B3, C1, C2, C3), with A1 being the best score and C3 being the worst score. The A, B, C portion of the grade relates to the width of the bell curve compared to the specification limits. The 1, 2, 3 portion of the grade relates to how well the process is centered on target. A grade of A1 means that the process is “tight and centered.” A C3 grade indicates a process with undesirable variation and not targeted very well.
 Yield Potential (Centered Process). An indication the best expected yield using shortterm standard deviation and a centered process.
 Yield Performance. The ratio of Expected Yield and Yield Potential.
 Expected Yield. An indication of actual yield taking into account offcenteredness and longterm standard deviation.
