Nonparametric control charts do not require knowledge about the shape of the underlying distribution and can thus be attractive in certain situations. Two new Shewhart-type nonparametric control charts are proposed for monitoring the unknown location parameter of a continuous population in Phase II (prospective) applications. The charts are based on control(More)
Nonparametric control charts can provide a robust alternative in practice to the data analyst when there is a lack of knowledge about the underlying distribution. A nonparametric exponentially weighted moving average (NPEWMA) control chart combines the advantages of a nonparametric control chart with the better shift detection properties of a traditional(More)
• The distribution of the variables that originates from monitoring the variance when the mean encountered a sustained shift is considered — specifically for the case when measurements from each sample are independent and identically distributed normal random variables. It is shown that the solution to this problem involves a sequence of dependent random(More)
Hypothalamic decapeptide, gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) has been found to stimulate human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) secretion by trophoblast cells in vitro. To determine the biological effect of GnRH on the release of hCG in vivo, we studied the effect of the administration of GnRH on the serum levels of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) during(More)
