Although and R charts are widely used, it is occasionally desirable to estimate the process standard deviation directly instead of indirectly through the use of the range R. This leads to control charts for and s, where s is the sample standard deviation

Generally, and s charts are preferable to their more familiar counterparts, and R charts, when either The sample size n is moderately large say, n>10 or 12. (Recall that the range method for estimating s loses statistical efficiency for moderate to large samples.) The sample size n is variable.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
