Title: Statistical Process Control Charts: Current Status and Future Directions


Statistical process control (SPC) and monitoring remains a highly active area of research where statistical methods are devised and applied to solve real world problems.  This area of work, which grew out of the manufacturing industry in the 50’s and the 60’s, has seen a tremendous growth in the number of research publications in the last few years and remains relevant today in traditional as well as big data situations.  In this general talk, an overview of some parts of the ever growing landscape of the current state of SPC research on control charts will be given.  The focus will be on univariate charts. The topics will include both parametric and nonparametric control charts, the nonparametric charts are useful in practice since minimal assumptions are required. Some current research topics will be described along with possibilities for future work.
