Control charts based on distributional assumptions may be unsatisfactory if the assumptions are violated, as the average run length (ARL) might deviate from its anticipated value. Control limits for such charts are based on estimates of parameters, which might cause biased ARL. We introduced extrema charts based on nonparametric predictive inference (NPI) (Arts, Coolen and van der Laan, 2004), which...
