np-chart

In statistical quality control, the np-chart is a type


of control chart used to monitor the number of
nonconforming units in a sample. It is an adaptation of
the p-chart and used in situations where personnel nd it
easier to interpret process performance in terms of concrete numbers of units rather than the somewhat more
abstract proportion.[1]
The np-chart diers from the p-chart in only the three
following aspects:

1. The control limits are n


p 3 n
p(1 p) , where n
is the sample size and p is the estimate of the longterm process mean established during control-chart
setup.
2. The number nonconforming (np), rather than the
fraction nonconforming (p), is plotted against the
control limits.
3. The sample size, n , is constant.
