Cusum Chart in Excel
Cumulative Sum Charts Can Detect Small Shifts in a Process
Cusum charts can detect process shifts more rapidly than the XmR or XbarR. If a trend develops, it's evidence that the process has shifted.
A Cusum Chart consists of:
- A target which is either provided by you or calculated as the mean of your data.
- Upper Cusum Limit and Lower Cusum Limit lines.
- C+ and C- lines which represent the cumulative sum of deviations of successive sample means from a target. Use these lines to determine if your process is shifting.
Default values calculated in the Cusum Chart:
k (slack) = 1/2 of your StDev
FIR = 0
h = 4
