    Abstract

    Statistical Control Charts developed over 60 years ago have seen many applications in process analysis and control in the past decade. To some users, the control charts are a recent invention of the Japanese, to many there is a confusion about the underlying assumptions and where and how this analytical tool may be applied. The effect of some of these assumed assumptions for control charts is discussed followed by suggested areas of application.
