The methods were popularized following World War II as W. Edwards Deming used control charts to aid the Japanese in rebuilding their manufacturing base (Deming, 2000). Now, as an important branch of both engineering and statistics, the traditional control charts have been supplemented with more advanced methods that are applicable in modern manufacturing and service environments. 1 gives an example of a simple Shewhart-type control chart. The dotted lines labeled UCL and LCL represent upper and lower control limits, respectively, and are based on the statistical nature of the process under consideration.
