Control charts are graphical tools that monitor and assess the performance of production processes, revealing abnormal (deterministic) disturbances when there is a fault. Simple patterns belonging to one of six types can be observed when a fault is occurring, and a Normal pattern when the process is performing under its intended conditions. Machine Learning algorithms have been implemented in this research to enable automatic identification of simple patterns.
Two pattern generation schemes (PGS) for synthesising patterns are proposed in this work. These PGSs ensure generality, randomness, and comparability, as well as allowing the further categorisation of the studied patterns. One of these PGSs was developed for processes that fulfil the NIID (Normally, identically and independently distributed) condition, and the other for three first-order lagged time series models. This last PGS was used as base to generate patterns of feedback-controlled processes.
Using the three aforementioned processes, control chart pattern recognition (CCPR) systems for these process types were proposed and studied. Furthermore, taking the recognition accuracy as a performance measure, the arrangement of input factors that achieved the highest accuracies for each of the CCPR systems was determined. Furthermore, a CCPR system for feedback-controlled processes was developed.
