  • Phase II monitoring of linear profiles using a P-value approach
    • Authors: Azadeh Adibi, Douglas C. Montgomery, Connie M. Borror
      Pages: 97 - 106
      Abstract: We propose a P-value-based method to assess the performance of linear profiles in phase II. Performance of the proposed method is evaluated by the average run length criterion under various shifts in the intercept, slope and error standard deviation of a linear model. In our proposed approach, P-values are computed at each level within a sample. If at least one of the P-values is less than a pre-specified significance level, chart signals out-of-control. The primary advantage of our approach is that only one control chart is required to monitor three parameters simultaneously: the intercept, slope, and standard deviation. A comprehensive comparison of the proposed method and the existing KMW-Shewhart method for monitoring linear profiles is conducted. In addition, the effect that number of observations within a sample has on the performance of the proposed method is investigated. A simulation study shows that the proposed P-value method performs satisfactorily in terms of average run length compared to KMW-Shewhart method.

  • An economic alternative to the c chart
    • Authors: Ryan Black, Justin R. Chimka
      Pages: 107 - 111
      Abstract: An economic alternative to the c chart is described as a statistical model of upward shift from c<SUB align="right">0 to c<SUB align="right">1, and costs of the two charts are compared in theory. For a range of c chart costs the savings associated with economic design increase linearly.

  • Monitoring variability of multivariate processes
    • Authors: Amitava Mitra, Mark Clark
      Pages: 112 - 132
      Abstract: The paper focuses on determining changes in process variability of multivariate processes. The problem is compounded by the fact that any of the elements in the variance-covariance matrix of variables could change, leading to a change in the process variability. While it may not be feasible to maintain individual control charts for each element of the variance-covariance matrix, some aggregate measure of the variability criteria could be monitored to initially determine if a change has occurred in the process variability. A couple of aggregate measures are proposed and the performance of these suggested measures is explored through a simulation procedure. Compared to the traditional method, which monitors the determinant of the variance-covariance matrix, these alternatives perform well. The performance measure used is the mean time to first detection of a change in the process variability.

  • A P-value approach for Phase II monitoring of multivariate profiles
    • Authors: Azadeh Adibi, Douglas C. Montgomery, Connie M. Borror
      Pages: 133 - 143
      Abstract: In some applications where the quality characteristic of interest is a profile, it is possible to use multiple linear regressions to model process quality. In this paper, we propose using a P-value approach to evaluate performance of multivariate profiles in Phase II. The average run length (ARL) is used to evaluate performance of the proposed method under different shifts in the model parameters. In our proposed approach, P-values for all observed levels within a sample are calculated. If any P-value is less than a specific threshold, the chart signals out of control. The main advantage of this approach is its ease of implementation in practice. Performance of the proposed method is compared to another commonly used method involving the T² control charts. Simulation results indicate that the proposed P-value approach performs quite well under the various conditions considered. Given that it is a straightforward and easy to implement approach, as well as a monitoring scheme that only requires a single control chart, the P-value method is quite competitive in practice.

  • Estimating performance degradation using intervals between upcrossings of
           a threshold
    • Authors: Brock E. Osborn, Hui Fan, Pasquale Sullo, Thomas R. Willemain
      Pages: 144 - 160
      Abstract: We consider the problem of estimating the rate of degradation of a system when only limited data is available. Specifically, we consider the problem of deriving a consistent estimator of degradation when we can only observe the sequence of times when an unobserved performance measurement exceeds a given threshold. Such problems arise, for example, in the operation of complex systems where exceeding a predefined level multiple times drives repair actions, in security applications for which only entry into a secured facility is recorded, and in sensor networks where data acquisition and transmission are limited. We consider the relative efficiency of the resulting estimator when compared to the MLE estimators derived from the full unobserved continuous process and from unobserved binary high-low data.

  • Design and application of multivariate CUSUM for quality monitoring of
           ready mixed concrete
    • Authors: Debasis Sarkar, Biswajit Bhattacharjee
      Pages: 161 - 179
      Abstract: Multivariate CUSUM control charts provide a unified scheme to monitor process mean and variability when there are multiple processes that need to be monitored to track the problem causing a change in the quality characteristic of the process. This paper aims at developing a set of multivariate CUSUM control charts for monitoring the quality of ready mixed concrete. On analysing available grades of concrete produced by two commercial batching plants in Ahmedabad, India, it has been observed that after application of multivariate CUSUM control charts along with V mask, if the identified point is the same for three or more quality characteristic then definitely there is a strong indication about occurrence of a problem at that point. The root cause investigation at the identified point would reveal the cause of the change in strength. The remedial action would be to modify the mix design and improve the quality of materials and workmanship.
