The use of re-sampling for estimating control chart limits

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Comments on the difficulties in establishing and using control limits for statistical control charts (SPC). Cites the author's previous papers regarding the use of resampling rather than algorithmic methods, for the estimation of statistical control limits. Sets out a general resampling method, which is claimed valid for any statistical parameter derived under ordinary conditions from random sample data. Illustrates with some manufacturing data, which using orthodox SPC techniques is considered to be out-of-control.
