This paper describes the application of an experiential learning activity to demonstrate and apply statistical concepts widely applied in the industry. The learning objectives of this activity are to know, describe and represent the different indicators related to Process and Product Capacity. In addition, we are looking for higher levels of learning by interpreting the measures and assessing them. We simulated a real situation of the industry adapted to a learning context which application will be reflecting the production and subsequent quality control of a process. The way in which learning is carried out is a substantial change over traditional methodology. The activity approach to learning is inductive and it is based on previous knowledge within the same subject.It establishes a connection between the objectives and the directed activities, so that the students, in a fun and relaxed way, become aware of the knowledge they are acquiring and its practical usefulness in real life.
