RCHART Statement |
Variable | Description |
_ALPHA_ | probability () of exceeding limits |
_CP_ | capability index C_{p} |
_CPK_ | capability index C_{pk} |
_CPL_ | capability index CPL |
_CPM_ | capability index C_{pm} |
_CPU_ | capability index CPU |
_INDEX_ | optional identifier for the control limits with the OUTINDEX= option |
_LCLR_ | lower control limit for subgroup range |
_LCLX_ | lower control limit for subgroup mean |
_LIMITN_ | sample size associated with the control limits |
_LSL_ | lower specification limit |
_MEAN_ | process mean () |
_R_ | value of central line on R chart |
_SIGMAS_ | multiple (k) of standard error of R_{i} |
_STDDEV_ | process standard deviation ( or ) |
_SUBGRP_ | subgroup-variable specified in the RCHART statement |
_TARGET_ | target value |
_TYPE_ | type (estimate or standard value) of _MEAN_ and _STDDEV_ |
_UCLR_ | upper control limit for subgroup range |
_UCLX_ | upper control limit for subgroup mean |
_USL_ | upper specification limit |
_VAR_ | process specified in the RCHART statement |
Notes:
The OUTLIMITS= data set contains one observation for each process specified in the RCHART statement. For an example, see "Saving Control Limits" .
The subgroup mean variable is saved so that the data set can be reused as a HISTORY= data set with the BOXCHART, XCHART, and XRCHART statements, as well as the RCHART statement.
Given a process name that contains eight characters, the procedure first shortens the name to its first four characters and its last three characters, and then it adds the suffix. For example, the procedure shortens the process DIAMETER to DIAMTER before adding the suffix.
Subgroup summary variables are
created for each process specified in the RCHART statement.
For example, consider the following statements:
proc shewhart data=steel; rchart (width diameter)*lot / outhistory=summary; run;
The data set SUMMARY contains variables named LOT, WIDTHX,
WIDTHR, WIDTHN, DIAMTERX, DIAMTERR, and DIAMTERN.
Additionally, the following variables, if specified, are included:
For an example of an OUTHISTORY= data set, see "Saving Summary Statistics" .

_ALPHA_ | probability () of exceeding control limits |
_EXLIM_ | control limit exceeded on R chart |

_SIGMAS_ | multiple (k) of the standard error associated with control limits |
subgroup | values of the subgroup variable |
