Understanding Process Variation with Control Charts

by Isaac Newton | February 2014 | Cookbooks Enterprise Articles

This article, by Isaac Newton, author of Minitab Cookbook, will help you understand the different process variations that can be done in control charts using Minitab. Control charts are very simple graphical tools which show us if measurements/results are stable over time. They look at the mean and variation of the data and check to see whether the observed data shows any patterns that would not be expected to occur if the data was purely random. This special cause variation is indicated by tests that look for these patterns. They are based on there being a low probability of these patterns occurring randomly. Minitab provides a wide range of control charts for different scenarios. These include the standard control charts for monitoring a process over time such as Xbar-R or I-MR charts as well as multivariate control charts and charts to plot rare events. Now, we will look at using some of the more traditional charts, but also show the use of some of the newer charts in Minitab.
