Performance of Control Charts for Weibull Processes

Statistical Process Control (SPC) is a statistical method for monitoring variability of processes. Process variation can be categorized as common cause and special cause. Common causes are the natural or expected variation of some change in the process. The presence of a special cause indicates that the process is not in a state of statistical control. The SPC methodology dictates that a search should be initiated when a special cause is detected. This thesis is about the set-up of magnitude robust control chart and CUSUM charts for detecting changes in Weibull processes. The research includes the comparison of the ARL performance of the control charts. / A Thesis submitted to the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering in
