The following entries provide detailed descriptions of the options in the PROC CAPABILITY statement. The notes Traditional Graphics and Line Printer identify options that apply to traditional graphics and line printer plots, respectively.
^{[12] }In SAS 6.12 and earlier releases, the level for confidence limits for capability indices was specified with the GAMMA= option in the SPEC statement. This option still works but is considered obsolete.
^{[13] }In SAS 6.12 and earlier releases, this value was specified with the ALPHA= option in the SPEC statement. This option still works but is considered obsolete.
^{[14] }In SAS 6.12 and previous releases of SAS/QC software, line printer plots were created by default and the GRAPHICS option was required in the PROC CAPABILITY statement to produce traditional graphics output.
