In this chapter, we are going to discuss a selected number and types of charts used for both measurable and attribute data. Some of these charts are very simple (e.g., median chart), and some of them are considered quite advanced (e.g., tool wear). Our selection is based on tradition, efficiency, and value.
Whereas in most applications of control charts, their application is straightforward and simple (see Chapters 8 and 9), there are situations in which these charts do not really fit into the appropriate analysis of the data. For these occasions, we have special control charts, and that is the topic of this chapter.
