Not Sure How to Run Stability Analysis on Control Charts?

QI Macros makes analyzing stability one click easy.

Why it Matters: Stability analysis is a key element of control charts. Make sure your control charts include stability analysis and the ability to re-run analysis when you add new data or process changes.

In QI Macros, the process differs depending on how you create your control chart:
