Monitoring of a manufacturing process ensures production of consistently good quality end production. In this paper, an attempt has been made to develop a monitoring strategy for a serial multistage manufacturing facility based on multi-block partial least squares regression, a multivariate regression technique. The developed monitoring strategy has been applied to a medium scale steel making shop. The monitoring strategy thus developed was employed for detection as well as for diagnosis of the faults responsible for the poor quality end product. The results obtained were found to be in sync with actual conditions.
