A machine fills 8ounce cans of twocycle engine oil additive. The filling process is believed to be in statistical control. The process is set so that the average weight of a filled can (μ0) is 8.10 ounces. Previous analysis shows that the standard deviation of fill weights (σ0) is 0.05 ounces.
Subgroup samples of four cans are selected and weighed every hour for twelve hours. Each observation in the Oil1 Cusum.jmp data table contains one value of weight and its associated value of hour. The observations are sorted so that the values of hour are in increasing order.

You can interpret the chart by comparing the points with the Vmask. The right edge of the Vmask is centered at the most recent point (the 12th hour). Because none of the points cross the arms of the Vmask, there is no evidence that a shift in the process has occurred. See Interpret a TwoSided CUSUM Chart.
