Abstract: T2 control chart with variable dimension is useful when there is a set of p1 variables that are easy to monitor or whose measurement is cheap, against a set of p2 variables, p = p1 + p2, that are difficult and/or expensive to monitor. However, the information that these p2 variables provide is important to detect quickly the process quality shift. Therefore, there are cases when controlling the whole set of p variables may be difficult or expensive, but controlling sometimes p1 variables, and only when the process seems to have a problem controlling the full set of p variables, may be a cheaper option on average and very efficient. However, its not effective if the shift size is small. For obtaining good performance in detecting such shifts, we propose the application of the variable sampling interval technique to the variable dimensional T2 (VDT2) control chart, resulting in the VSIVDT2 control chart.
