Robust multivariate control chart based on shrinkage for individual observations
MetadataShow full item record
A robust multivariate quality control technique for individual observations is proposed, based on the robust reweighted shrinkage estimators. A simulation study is done to check the performance and compare the method with the classical Hotelling approach, and the robust alternative based on the reweighted minimum covariance determinant estimator. The results show the appropriateness of the method even when the dimension or the Phase I contamination are high, with both independent and correlated variables, showing additional advantages about computational efficiency. The approach is illustrated with two real data-set examples from production processes.
