Abstract: Abstract The most popular multivariate process monitoring and control procedure used in the industry is the chi-square control chart. As with most Shewhart-type control charts, the major disadvantage of the chi-square control chart, is that it only uses the information contained in the most recently inspected sample; as a consequence, it is not very efficient in detecting gradual or small shifts in the process mean vector. During the last decades, the performance improvement of the chi-square control chart has attracted continuous research interest. In this paper we introduce a simple modification of the chi-square control chart which makes use of the notion of runs to improve the sensitivity of the chart in the case of small and moderate process mean vector shifts.
