Enhancing the process capability is a must in quality improvement of process manufacturing in the industry. Usually, Statistical Process Control (SPC) is applied in measure the activity of quality improvement. In this case, the statistical process control used to measure the process capability of molding machine regarding of force result of inner contact rubber button in plastic industry. The forces of inner contact rubber button which produce by molding machine already become the critical point as a judgment of malfunctions or not. Meanwhile, the forces problem still found in molding machine that affected to the inner contact rubber button as defect product. Furthermore, as shown of SPC, the process capability of molding machine was 0.63. This mean the process capability is still need the improvement. As the result of quality improvement was made by applied of Poka-Yoke, the process capability of molding machine was improved to 1.65.
