Abstract

A review of the literature on control charts for multivariate quality control (MQC) is given, with a concentration on developments occurring since the mid-1980s. Multivariate cumulative sum (CUSUM) control procedures and a multivariate exponentially weighted moving average (EWMA) control chart are reviewed and recommendations are made regarding their use. Several recent articles that give methods for interpreting an out-of-control signal on a multivariate control chart are analyzed and discussed. Other topics such as the use of principal components and regression adjustment of variables in MQC, as well as frequently used approximations in MQC, are discussed.
