Control Charts in Client Server 5.1


Recommended Posts

I am currently trying to figure out the best way to create a control chart

in the Com version 5.1. Being extensions are not compatible, I need to do

this manually. The chart is similar to the Sigma type charts with a line

consisting of 12 points or more, a Upper Level line, a Lower Level line and

a Median line. The difference is that the Upper and Lower levels are not

constant from period to period and they are not a solid line, they would

probably be just dashes for each mark. Should the Upper and Lower level

lines be drawn as annotation text underscores or is there a way to create a

line that is connected to each point?

I am more than willing to move to version 6.2 for Com, but does that get me

anything that I can not do in version 5.2? Also, I have heard that the

extensions will be available for 6.2, but the question is when?

Thanks,

Joe

If the limits are just little horizontal lines for each marker the best way 

to do this would be to add two additional data series to your chart, one for

the UCL and one for the LCL, set the gallery to both these series to SCATTER

and set a MarkerShape to MK_HORZLINE. Something like this (in a chart with 3

series, 1 for your data and two for the control limits).

ChartFX1.Series(0).Gallery = SCATTER ' LCL

ChartFX1.Series(1).Gallery = LINES

ChartFX1.Series(2).Gallery = SCATTER ' UCL

ChartFX1.MarkerSize = 10

ChartFX1.Series(0).MarkerShape = MK_HORZLINE

ChartFX1.Series(1).MarkerShape = MK_NONE

ChartFX1.Series(2).MarkerShape = MK_HORZLINE

Of course using this approach it is up to you to calculate the control

limits for each point.
