Numerous other texts and publications stress the continuing importance of this area. While tables of key Shewhart control chart parameters are extremely useful they are easily lost or mislaid and can sometimes be difficult to interpret. To address this issue spreadsheet code is implemented to produce all the key control chart factors.
