The comparison of efficiency of control charts by weighted variance method, scaled weighted variance method, empirical quantiles method and extreme-value theory for skewed populations. (English) Zbl 1152.62408
From the introduction: This study presents methods to construct control charts in case of non-normal distributions. We use WV, SWV, empirical quantiles and extreme-value theory methods for skewed populations for three different distributions: the Weibull distribution, lognormal distribution and Burr’s distribution. We then compare the efficiencies of the control charts constructed by the four different methods for each distribution.
