rule May 15 2012 Run charts are graphs that display data about a process or system over time they are frequently used for monitoring quality improvement initiatives The information below introduces you to four rules for recognizing signals of change in run charts that should prompt you to ask questions about what may have caused the change These rules help us to react appropriately while considering all the data not each individual data point Rule 1 Shift A shift is 6 or more consecutive data points either all above or all below the median Data points exactly equal to the median do not add to nor break a shift these data points are ignored when counting Rule 2 Trend A trend is 5 or more consecutive data points either all going up or all going down Consecutive identical points do not add to nor break a trend but only the first of these point counts toward the total Rule 3 Too Few or Too Many Runs The number of runs is found by counting the number of times the data line crosses the median and adding 1 To ascertain if there are too few or too many runs consult the table available here Rule 4 Astronomical Point An astronomical point is an unusually large or small number It must be exceptional to every person viewing the chart For more information contact info hqc sk ca more PowerPoints from Quality Summit presenters now available April 23 2012 The 2012 Quality Summit
