Entitlement

Go Back

Definition

The best Process Capability that could be expected from the current process design.

Application

The entitlement of a process is used to set a process performance goal for a Six Sigma project. Each organization has its own guidlines for setting project goals, but they are often determined using a target improvement percentage (of the gap between baseline performance and entitlement).
