Byline: Alessandro Fass'o (1), Samuele Locatelli (1) Keywords: Multivariate control charts; Brake-disc quality control; Block bootstrap; Nonlinear multivariate process control Abstract: We consider asymmetric change detection by generalizing the one-sided MEWMA control chart. In particular, we revise and extend the one-sided MEWMA algorithm to cope with mixed alternatives where some coordinates are allowed to increase and others may change in any direction. The motivating application is related to massive brake-disk production for the automotive industry. We consider monitoring of seven geometrical and dimensional parameters and show how the proposed method discriminates between geometrical deformation and dimensional shifts. As often happens in complex industrial processes, these data are nonlinear serially correlated. Therefore, we compute the thresholds of the one-sided MEWMA control charts using the semi-parametric stationary block bootstrap.
