Low process variability and capability index might be some of customer's requirements. Therefore it is necessary to fulfil these requirements and guarantee them in the future. Since state-of-art companies that want to keep up with competitors have to consider all actions which might prevent losses or customer's dissatisfaction. This paper deals with possibilities how to decrease the process variability and satisfy customers. For process variability decrease, statistical experiments were carried out. The paper contains a case study devoted to the usage of design of experiment (DOE) in the production process. The case study reveals ways of dealing with real production problems and offers an effective treatment.
