Monitoring multivariate process variability when sub-group size is small

Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.] The current practice of multivariate process variability monitoring, when sub-group size is small, has nothing to do with probability of false alarm (PFA). Consequently, the reliability of the existing control charts remains undetermined. In this article, we propose a control chart which is reliable, very sensitive to the change in variance for small or moderate correlation, and provides a root causes analysis of an out-of-control signal. To illustrate these advantages, an industrial example is presented and the results are compared with those issued from the existing methods.
