A comparison of alternative methods to the shewhart-type control chart
MetadataShow full item record
A control chart that simultaneously tracks the mean and variance of a normally distributed variable with no compensation effect is defined in this work. This joint control chart is compared to five other charts: an Î§ chart, an s2 chart, a Reynolds and Ghosh chart, a Repko process capability plot, and a t-statistic chart. The criterion for comparison is the probability of a Type II sampling error. Several out-of-control cases are examined. In the case of Repko, an equation is defined to compute the Type II error probability. The results indicate that the Reynolds and Ghosh statistic is powerful for cases when the variance shifts out of control. The Î§ chart is powerful when the mean shifts with moderate changes in the variance. The joint chart is powerful for moderate changes in the mean and variance.
