Hint: Use this chart to determine the Upper Control Limit (UCL) and Lower Control Limit (LCL) for an Xbar-S chart. Mean and Standard Deviation (Xbar-S) chart is used when you have Continuous data with a Sample Size of greater than eight

Grand Mean (x-bar-bar)

Calculate average for each time period. Then calculate the grand mean i.e average of averages of the time periods

Average Standard Deviation

Calculate Standard Deviation of each time period. Then calculate the average standard deviation i.e average of all standard deviations

Number of observation in each sub-group

Enter an integer value between nine and twenty five

Control Limits

Control Limits cannot be calculated since a negative average standard deviation was entered. Enter a value greater than zero

Use Xbar-R Chart or I-MR Chart

Since the number of observations in each sub-group is less than nine, it is recommended to use a Xbar-R chart (if number of observations are between two to eight) or I-MR chart (if number of observation is one)

Incorrect number of observations

Please enter an integer between nine to twenty five
