Abstract

Control Chart Patterns (CCPs) recognition is one the most important concepts in control chart application. Relating the patterns exhibited on the control chart to assignable causes is an ambiguous and vague task especially when multiple patterns co-exist. In this study, a fuzzy rule-based system is developed for X ̅ control charts to prioritize the control chart causes based on the accumulated evidence. To demonstrate the reasonable performance of the proposed fuzzy rule-based system, the case studies are performed and the results are analyzed.
