## How do I make a np-chart in Minitab?

Steps to plot a NP chart in Minitab:

- Click Stat → Control Charts → Attributes Charts → NP.
- A new window named “NP Chart” appears.
- Select “Fail” as the “Variables.”
- Select “N” as the “Subgroup Sizes.”
- Click the button “NP ChartOptions” to open a window named “NP Chart Options”.
- Click the tab “Tests.”

**What is NP control chart?**

An np-chart is an attributes control chart used with data collected in subgroups that are the same size. Np-charts are used to determine if the process is stable and predictable, as well as to monitor the effects of process improvement theories. Np-charts can be created using software programs like SQCpack.

### How do I make an np-chart?

Steps in Constructing an np Control Chart

- Gather the data. a. Select the subgroup size (n).
- Plot the data. a. Select the scales for the control chart.
- Calculate the process average and control limits. a. Calculate the process average number defective:
- Interpret the chart for statistical control.

**How do you read a np-chart?**

The vertical (Y) axis of an NP chart will typically tell the number of defectives or nonconforming instances in each subgroup, and the horizontal axis carries the sub group designations….Reading an NP chart

- n = the number of items,
- p = proportion of defective items.
- The lower control line is bounded by 0.

## What is P chart with examples?

The p-chart is a quality control chart used to monitor the proportion of nonconforming units in different samples of size n; it is based on the binomial distribution where each unit has only two possibilities (i.e. defective or not defective).

**How do you make a C chart in Minitab?**

To create a C chart, choose Stat > Control Charts > Attributes Charts > C.

### What is P chart and NP chart?

P charts show the proportion of nonconforming units on the y-axis. NP charts show the whole number of nonconforming units on the y-axis.

**What is the difference between NP chart and C chart?**

The np chart monitors the number of defects. c and u charts. The c chart is used to monitor the number of defects in a sample while the u chart monitors the average number of defects per sample unit. The c chart is similar to the np chart except that it counts defects as opposed to defectives.

## What is the difference between NP chart and c-chart?

**How do I perform a test on the np chart?**

Open the sample data, DefectiveLightBulbs.MTW. Choose Stat > Control Charts > Attributes Charts > NP. In Variables, enter Defectives. In Subgroup sizes, enter 500. Click NP Chart Options. On the Tests tab, select 1 point > K standard deviations from center line (Test 1) and K points in a row on same side of center line (Test 2).

### How do I set control limits on np charts?

In Subgroup sizes, enter 500. Click NP Chart Options. On the Tests tab, select 1 point > K standard deviations from center line (Test 1) and K points in a row on same side of center line (Test 2). If you are not sure which tests apply in your specific situation, use Tests 1 and 2 when you first establish the control limits based on your data.

**How do you find the standard deviation on a np chart?**

In Variables, enter Defectives. In Subgroup sizes, enter 500. Click NP Chart Options. On the Tests tab, select 1 point > K standard deviations from center line (Test 1) and K points in a row on same side of center line (Test 2).
