2 2003 Q&P Research Conference 2 Basic SPC assumptions: 1. Univariate quality characteristic or multivariate quality vector. 2. Some distributional assumptions, usually normality.

3 2003 Q&P Research Conference 3 We assume that for the i th random sample collected over time, we have the observations (x ij, y ij ), j = 1, 2, …, n.

4 2003 Q&P Research Conference 4 We refer to this as profile data. Jin and Shi (2001) used the term waveform signal. Gardner et al. (1997) used signature.

5 2003 Q&P Research Conference 5 There are many examples and applications: Aspartame function, Kang and Albin (2000) Tonnage stamping, Jin and Shi (2001) Location data, Boeing (1998) Calibration data, Mestek et al. (1994) Vertical density profile data for wood boards, Walker and Wright (2002).

6 2003 Q&P Research Conference 6 Monitoring Profiles with Control Charts General Issues and Pitfalls Linear Profiles Nonlinear Profiles, Wavelets, and Splines Relationships to Other Methods in SPC Ideas for Further Research

7 2003 Q&P Research Conference 7 General Issues 1. Phase I vs. Phase II Each application and method applies to a particular phase. The goals and the methods of evaluating statistical performance vary by phase.

8 2003 Q&P Research Conference 8 Phase I – A set of historical data is available. Interest is on understanding process variation, assessing process stability, and estimating in-control process parameters. Statistical performance measure: Probability of deciding process is unstable.

9 2003 Q&P Research Conference 9 Phase II – Using control limits estimated from Phase I with data as it is obtained successively over time. Statistical performance measure: Parameter (usually the mean) of the run length distribution.

10 2003 Q&P Research Conference 10 2.Principal Components and Functional Data Method of Jones and Rice (1992) is very useful in Phase I to understand profile variation.

11 2003 Q&P Research Conference 11 Profile monitoring is an application of functional data analysis, although only classical regression and multivariate ideas have been applied thus far.

12 2003 Q&P Research Conference 12 3.Profile-to-Profile Common Cause Variation A basic issue in all applications is the extent to which variation between profiles should be incorporated into the control chart limits. Pitfall #1: Failing to address this issue.

13 2003 Q&P Research Conference 13 4.The Control Chart Statistic(s) Parametric model: Monitor each parameter with separate chart unless estimators are dependent, then use a T-squared chart.

14 2003 Q&P Research Conference 14 To form the T-squared statistics in Phase I, one should use the estimator of the variance-covariance matrix proposed by Holmes and Mergen (1993). See Sullivan and Woodall (1996). Pitfall #2: Pooling of all vectors in Phase I.

15 2003 Q&P Research Conference 15 If a smoothing method is used, such as spline-fitting, then control charts based on metrics can be used to detect changes in observed profiles from a baseline profile.

16 2003 Q&P Research Conference 16 If only a few linear combinations of the Y-variables are monitored for each profile, then some shifts in profiles are undetectable. Pitfall #3: Monitoring only a subset of principal components or wavelet coefficients determined from in- control profiles.

17 2003 Q&P Research Conference 17 Analysis of Linear Profiles Phase I: Mestek et al. (1994), Stover and Brill (1998), Kang and Albin (2000), Kim et al. (2003), Mahmoud and Woodall (2003). Phase II: Kang and Albin (2000), Kim et al. (2003).

19 2003 Q&P Research Conference 19 Polynomial / Multiple Regression: Jensen, Hui, and Ghare (1984) Nonlinear Regression: Brill (2001), Williams et al. (2003).

20 2003 Q&P Research Conference 20 Splines: Gardner et al. (1994), Boeing (1998). Wavelets: Jin and Shi (1999, 2001), Lada et al. (2002), Sun et al. (2003).

21 2003 Q&P Research Conference 21 Relationships to Other SPC Methods Multivariate SPC: Related, but dimensionality reduction is needed. Regression-adjusted (or cause-selecting) charts: [Hawkins (1991, 1993), Wade and Woodall (1993)] Related, but more general and data-intensive. Use of Trend Rules. Only artificially related.

22 2003 Q&P Research Conference 22 Research Ideas Much work is needed in profile monitoring. Only the linear profile case has been studied in any detail.

23 2003 Q&P Research Conference 23 Linear profile case with the X-variable random. Use of generalized linear models. Effect of estimation error. Statistical evaluation of proposed methods. Linear calibration monitoring. Use of more powerful SPC methods. Multiple response variables. Comparisons of competing methods. … and many, many more.

24 2003 Q&P Research Conference 24 We strongly encourage work and research in the area of profile monitoring. This framework opens SPC up to a much wider variety of statistical methods, models, and ideas. It also greatly expands the variety of engineering applications.
