Phase II monitoring of multivariate simple linear profiles with estimated parameters
In some applications of statistical process monitoring, a quality characteristic can be characterized by linear regression relationships between several response variables and one explanatory variable, which is referred to as a “multivariate simple linear profile.” It is usually assumed that the process parameters are known in Phase II. However, in most applications, this assumption is violated; the parameters are unknown and should be estimated based on historical data sets in Phase I. This study aims to compare the effect of parameter estimation on the performance of three Phase II approaches for monitoring multivariate simple linear profiles, designated as MEWMA, MEWMA_3 and MEWMA∕ 2 . Three metrics are used to accomplish this objective: AARL, SDARL and CVARL. The superior method may be different in terms of the AARL and SDARL metrics. Using the CVARL metric helps practitioners make reliable decisions. The comparisons are carried out under both in-control and out-of-control conditions for all competing approaches. The corrected limits are also obtained by a Monte Carlo simulation in order to decrease the required number of Phase I samples for parameter estimation. The results reveal that parameter estimation strongly affects the in-control and out-of-control performance of monitoring approaches, and a large number of Phase I samples are needed to achieve a parameter estimation that is close to the known parameters. The simulation results show that the MEWMA and MEWMA∕ 2 methods perform better than the MEWMA_3 method in terms of the CVARL metric. However, the superior approach is different in terms of AARL and SDARL.
In some quality control applications, quality of a product or process can be characterized by a relationship between two or more variables that is typically referred to as profile. Moreover, in some situations, there are several correlated quality characteristics, which can be modeled as a set of linear functions of one explanatory variable. We refer to this as multivariate simple linear profil...متن کامل
In many circumstances, the quality of a process or product is best characterized by a given mathematical function between a response variable and one or more explanatory variables that is typically referred to as profile. There are some investigations to monitor auto-correlated linear and nonlinear profiles in recent years. In the present paper, we use the linear mixed models to account autocor...متن کامل
Abstract Profile monitoring in statistical quality control has attracted attention of many researchers recently. A profile is a function between response variables and one or more independent variables. There have been only a limited number of researches on monitoring multivariate profiles. Indeed, monitoring correlated multivariate profiles is a new subject in the fileld of statistical proces...متن کامل
In some statistical process control applications, quality of a process or product can be characterized by a relationship between a response and one or more independent variables, which is typically referred to a profile. In this paper, polynomial profiles are considered to monitor processes in which there is a first order autoregressive relation between the error terms in each profile. A remedi...متن کامل
In most modern manufacturing systems, products are often the output of some multistage processes. In these processes, the stages are dependent on each other, where the output quality of each stage depends also on the output quality of the previous stages. This property is called the cascade property. Although there are many studies in multistage process monitoring, there are fewer works on prof...متن کامل
Adaptive sample size and sampling intervals schemes have been widely used to improve the statistical efficiency of Hotelling T control chart in detecting small changes when the quality of a product or a process can be characterised by the multivariate distribution of quality characteristics. In this paper, we design a Hotelling T scheme varying sample sizes and sampling intervals (VSSI-T) for a...متن کامل
