When monitoring the mean of a continuous quality measure it is often recommended a separate chart be used to monitor the variability. These charts are traditionally designed separately. This project considers them together as a combined charting procedure and gives recommendations for their design. This is based on an average run length (ARL) analysis. The run length distribution is determined using two methods both based on a Markov chain approach.
