A cause was found and was removed or disappeared Æ delete the point b. A cause was found and cannot be removed Æ keep the point c. No cause was found but not much information is available Æ delete the point d. No cause was found and we are quite sure that there was none Æ keep the point After deleting the points, recalculate new new new UCL and LCL R , , and plot the remaining points again.

If all the points are between the limits, or you decide to keep the tools and removed....
