...to display the Quality Control Charts Startup Panel. In all production processes, the extent to which products meet quality specifications must be monitored. In the most general terms, there are two "enemies" of product quality: 1) deviations from target specifications, and 2) excessive variability around target specifications. During the earlier stages of developing the production process, designed experiments are often used to optimize these two quality characteristics (see the documentation for the Design of Experiments module); the methods provided in Quality Control Charts are on-line or in-process quality control procedures to monitor an on-going production process.

The Quality Control Charts module will compute all standard Shewhart control charts for variables (e.g., X-bar, X, R, S) or attributes (P, Np, C, U), and includes a large number of options to handle short runs, sets, causes, actions, user-defined alarms, etc. These options are highly customizable and designed to support complex, real-time quality control monitoring applications. Note that the Quality Control Charts facilities in STATISTICA are specifically designed to support large-scale quality control charting setups, and can take advantage of distributed data processing on large networks.
