The process capability indices are important numerical measures in statistical quality control. Well-known process capability indices are constructed under the process distribution is normal. Unfortunately, this situation is rather not realistic. This paper focuses on the half logistic distribution. The bootstrap confidence intervals for the difference between two process capability indices for the mentioned distribution are proposed. The bootstrap confidence intervals considered in this paper consist of the standard bootstrap confidence interval, the percentile bootstrap confidence interval and the bias-corrected percentile bootstrap confidence interval. A Monte Carlo simulation has been used to investigate the estimated coverage probabilities and average widths of the bootstrap confidence intervals. Simulation results showed that the estimated coverage probabilities of the standard bootstrap confidence interval get closer to the nominal confidence level than those of the other bootstrap confidence intervals.
