A New Control Chart Achieved via Innovation Process Approach
An alternative title for this chapter could be “Innovation for Statistics”, which would be equally appropriate to illustrate its contents. In fact, the chapter shows how to perform the innovation process approach in order to fulfill a scientific research need in a specific application area. More specifically, this chapter describes the incremental development of a new control chart of the Weibull percentile (i.e. the reliable life) as a practical example of a product attained following an innovation process approach. More specifically, the design of the chart required three “short” operative steps of innovation process, in order to provide the original chart with new peculiar features incrementally.
