Justification of production and manufacturing processes overtime, process capability in the concept of statistical control has been of great importance because it has promoted the production of products that satisfy the expectation of consumers. This paper aimed at promoting the adoption of quality process capability design in a bid to improve the process stability of a process and improve the process performance in the long run of production. In ensuring this, the technique of design of experiment is adopted using factorial design after which the capability analysis was carried out on the data on plastic containers produced by molding machines as deduced from the control X-bar and Range charts, it was established that the process was observed to be stable and in a state of statistical quality control and the plastic containers produced were observed to differ from one another as a result of variation on the part of the operators of the molding machines.
