Abstract

The EWMA charts are the well-known memory-type charts used for monitoring the small-to-intermediate shifts in the process parameters (location and/or dispersion). The hybrid EWMA (HEWMA) charts are enhanced version of the EWMA charts, which effectively monitor the process parameters. This paper aims to develop two new uppersided HEWMA charts for monitoring shifts in process variance, i.e., HEWMA1 and HEWMA2 charts. The design structures of the proposed HEWMA1 and HEWMA2 charts are based on the concept of integrating the features of two EWMA charts. The HEWMA1 and HEWMA2 charts plotting statistics are developed using one EWMA statistic as input for the other EWMA statistic. A Monte Carlo simulations method is used as a computational technique to determine the numerical results for the performance characteristics, such as average run length (ARL), median run length, and standard deviation run length (SDRL) for assessing the performance of the proposed HEWMA1 and HEWMA2 charts. In addition, to evaluate the overall performance of the proposed HEWMA1 and HEWMA2 charts, other numerical measures consisting of the extra quadratic loss (EQL), relative average run length (RARL), and performance comparison index (PCI) are also computed. The proposed HEWMA1 and HEWMA2 charts are compared to some existing charts, such as CH, CEWMA, HEWMA, AEWMA HHW1, HHW2, AIB-EWMA-I, and AIB-EWMA-II charts, on the basis aforementioned numerical measures. The comparison reveals that the proposed HEWMA1 and HEWMA2 charts achieve better detection ability against the existing charts. In the end, a real-life data application is also provided to enhance the implementation of the proposed HEWMA1 and HEWMA2 charts practically.
