Statistical Analysis of Profile MonitoringeBook - 2011
Statistical profile monitoring is an area of statistical qualitycontrol that is growing in significance for researchers andpractitioners, specifically because of its range of applicabilityacross various service and manufacturing settings. Comprised ofcontributions from renowned academicians and practitioners in thefield, Statistical Analysis of Profile Monitoring presentsthe latest state-of-the-art research on the use of control chartsto monitor process and product quality profiles. The book presentscomprehensive coverage of profile monitoring definitions,techniques, models, and application examples, particularly invarious areas of engineering and statistics.
The book begins with an introduction to the concept of profilemonitoring and its applications in practice. Subsequent chaptersexplore the fundamental concepts, methods, and issues related tostatistical profile monitoring, with topics of coverageincluding:Simple and multiple linear profiles Binary response profiles Parametric and nonparametric nonlinear profiles Multivariate linear profiles monitoring Statistical process control for geometric specifications Correlation and autocorrelation in profiles Nonparametric profile monitoring
Throughout the book, more than two dozen real-world case studieshighlight the discussed topics along with innovative examples andapplications of profile monitoring. Statistical Analysis ofProfile Monitoring is an excellent book for courses onstatistical quality control at the graduate level. It also servesas a valuable reference for quality engineers, researchers andanyone who works in monitoring and improving statisticalprocesses.
