Abstract

A common approach to building control charts for autocorrelated data is to apply classical SPC to the residuals from a time series model of the process. However, Shewhart charts and even CUSUM charts are less sensitive to small shifts in the process mean when applied to residuals than when applied to independent data. Using an approximate analytical model, we show that the average run length of a CUSUM chart for residuals can be reduced substantially by modifying traditional chart design guidelines to account for the degree of autocorrelation in the data.
