Normal density plot between specifications
p = normspec(...)
[p,h] = normspec(...)
normspec(specs) plots the standard normal density, shading the portion inside the specification limits given by the two-element vector specs. Set specs(1) to -Inf if there is no lower limit; set specs(2) to Inf if there is no upper limit.
normspec(specs,mu,sigma) shades the portion inside the specification limits of a normal density with parameters mu and sigma. The defaults are mu = 0 and sigma = 1.
normspec(specs,mu,sigma,region) shades the region either 'inside' or 'outside' the specification limits. The default is 'inside'.
p = normspec(...) also returns the probability, p, of the shaded area.
[p,h] = normspec(...) also returns a handle h to the line objects.
This example shows how to create a normal density plot.
A production process fills cans of paint. The average amount of paint in any can is 1 gallon, but variability in the process produces a standard deviation of 2 ounces (2/128 gallons). What is the probability that the cans will be filled under specification by 3 or more ounces?
p = normspec([1-3/128,Inf],1,2/128,'outside')
p = 0.0668
