Control Panel

The Control Panel report contains the current values for the chart parameters. The current values are in boxes that enable you to update the parameter values. There are also boxes for Upper Side and Lower Side. If you have specified the Data Units option in the launch window, this setting is denoted in the Control Panel below the check boxes.

The options that appear in the Control Panel report are as follows:

Target

The known value of the mean. This is the value of the center line in the chart. By default, this parameter is set to the Target value in the Spec Limits column property for the Y column. If the Y column does not have a Target value in the Spec Limits column property, this parameter is set to the overall average of the Y column.

Note: To use the overall average of the Y column as the value of the center line even if the Y column has a Target value in the Spec Limits column property, select the Use Process Mean for Center Line platform preference. This preference is located in File > Preferences > Platforms > CUSUM Control Chart.

Sigma

The known value of the standard deviation. By default, this parameter is set to the average moving range of the Y column. If there is an X variable, the Sigma parameter is set to the average moving range of the summary data.

Head Start

The value of the cumulative sums before the first sample. Starting the cumulative sums at a nonzero value increases the sensitivity of the CUSUM chart near the beginning of the samples. This parameter is also known as the fast initial response (FIR) value. By default, this parameter is set to 0.

h or H

The value of the parameter that defines the limits. If the Data Units option was not selected in the launch window, this is the h parameter. If the Data Units option was selected in the launch window, this is the H parameter. Note that H is equal to h times Sigma. By default, h is equal to 5 and H is equal to 5 times Sigma.

k or K

The value of the parameter that defines the smallest change in the mean that is valuable to detect. If the Data Units option was not selected in the launch window, this is the k parameter. If the Data Units option was selected in the launch window, this is the K parameter. Note that K is equal to k times Sigma. By default, k is equal to 0.5 and K is equal to one half of Sigma.

Upper Side

Shows or hides the positive values for the cumulative sum on the chart. These values are the C+ values.

Lower Side

Shows or hides the negative values for the cumulative sum on the chart. These values are the C- values.

Using Data Units

The presence of this text indicates that the Data Units option was selected in the launch window and that the values in the CUSUM chart are centered but not standardized.
