Hi All,

 

I'm tyring to use PROC SHEWHART to make a control chart which computes different process limits for different phases.  Been reading the docs, and it looks like to do this I need to call PROC SHEWHART twice, and sort the data. Ugh. The first time I use OUTLIMITS to write a limits dataset, then the second time I create the chart.


Below is based on example from the SAS/QC Manual, "Displaying Multiple Sets of Control LimitsMultiple Sets of Control Limits".

proc sort data=Flange;
  by _phase_ Sample;
run;

proc shewhart history=Flange;
   xchart Flwidth*Sample /
     nochart
     outlimits=MyLimits(rename=(_phase_=_index_))
   ;
   by _phase_;
run;

proc sort data=Flange;
  by Sample;
run;

*Feed the limits dataset back into Shewhart;

proc shewhart history=Flange limits=MyLimits;
   xchart Flwidth*Sample /
      readphases  = all
      readindexes = all
      phaseref
      phaselegend 
   ;
run;

 

Before I proceed, wanted to make sure I'm not missing some other way to make a phased chart with just one call to PROC SHEWHART.  Feels like I want a PHASE option, pseudo-code:

 

proc shewhart history=Flange;
   xchart Flwidth*Sample /
      phase=_phase_
   ;
run;

 

 

 

Thanks,

I have never done this myself, but I read the syntax portion of the doc as well as the section on "Displaying Multiple Sets of Control Limits," and it looks like you are doing what the doc recommends.  The examples they give make two calls: one to create the limits and one to incorporate them,
