This standard presents key elements and philosophy of the control chart approach, and identifies a wide variety of control charts (including those related to the Shewhart control chart, those stressing process acceptance or online process adjustment, and specialized control charts).

It presents an overview of the basic principles and concepts and illustrates the relationship among various control chart approaches to aid in the selection of the most appropriate standard for given circumstances.


The analytical guides are relevant to multiple areas in DII, wherever data analysis, prioritisation, and intelligence analysis are used. This is a best practice guide on the guidelines of control charting in analysis.
