Abstract : This paper compares three procedures for controlling a process. The Shewhart Control Chart, the Cumulative Sum Chart, and the Signed Sequential Rank Procedure. When the mean of a process shifts by a large amount, the Cumulative Sum Chart appears to be best. When deviations are small, the Signed Sequential Rank Procedure appears to be best. (Author)
