Article Abstract

[This abstract is based on the author's abstract.]

Two major themes of control charts and spreadsheets are linked. Code is given to produce Shewhart X-bar and range and cumulative sum (CUSUM) control charts using a spreadsheet package on a personal computer. Users of control charts are introduced to spreadsheets, and a greater adoption of quality control through the use of control charts is promoted. Details of the sheets are included to allow readers to use them on appropriate spreadsheets. Procedures are illustrated using data from a light engineering company.
