What is a control chart?

The control chart is a tool in quality management that is used to monitor production processes with regard to certain quality characteristics. The control chart signals possible disturbances in processes and can thus provide information on when and how to intervene in the affected process.

What are warning and action limits?

Warning and action limits represent thresholds that are plotted on the control chart to determine whether a process is under or out of control. Action limits are typically set tighter than warning limits and indicate when action is required to correct the process. The use of warning and action limits on control charts allows processes to be effectively monitored and deviations to be responded to early to ensure the quality of the process and the end product.
