A Multivariate Change-Point Model for Statistical Process Control

Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.]Traditional statistical process control charts assume that the in-control true parameters are precisely known and use these values to set the control limits. Actually, true parameter values are seldom known with exactness, but are instead estimated from a Phase I sample study that requires large samples. In addition to cost considerations, industrial settings often lack relevant data for estimating process parameters. An alternative method when monitoring for a step change in the mean vector is the unknown-parameter change-point formulation that is able to control the run behavior without the need for a large Phase I sample.
