Control charts for simultaneously monitoring of process mean and coefficient of variation with and without auxiliary information

Journal Article

Abstract A control chart is very useful to control assignable causes which detect the shifted process parameters (eg, mean and dispersion). Simultaneous monitoring of the process parameters is a well‐known approach utilized for the bilateral processes. In the current study, we proposed the blended control chart that monitors the process mean and process coefficient of variation simultaneously. Further, the sensitivity of control chart is enhanced by incorporating an auxiliary variable. We have utilized the concept of EWMA chart and also the log transformation to transform the distribution of sample coefficient of variation to the normal distribution for structuring a joint monitoring control chart. The performance comparison among proposed control charts is presented. On the basis of ARLs and SDRLs, several advantages of the proposed control charts are diagnosed. The empirical evidence is also provided to support proposed control chart with a real‐life dataset.
