p Chart and u Chart Formats
p and u chart Control Limit Options in QI Macros
p charts and u charts can have upper control limits (UCL) and lower control limits (LCL) that vary with the sample size. The QI Macros provides users with options about how these control limits are displayed.
When you run a p chart or u chart in the QI Macros, the default format is "flat or skyline limits" that display the UCL, CL, LCL and your data.
To change the QI Macros default from flat/skyline limits to wavy limits, click on Control Charts, then Control Chart Rules, then p/u UCL_LCL format.
A window will open showing the new format you are selecting. Click OK to change the format.
Now run the p chart or u chart again and the control limits will be wavy vs flat/skyline.
Here is a p chart with wavy control limits:
Since the p chart is a fraction defective chart, the UCL is limited to 100% and the LCL is limited to 0%
