### Abstract

Traditional control charts are commonly based on the averages of the inspected groups of observations. It turns out to be quite worthwhile to consider alternative approaches. In particular, a very good proposal is to use instead the group minimum for comparison to some suitable upper limit (and likewise the group maximum for comparison to a lower limit). The power of detection during Out-of-Control of the resulting chart is comparable to that of the standard Shewhart approach, while it offers much better protection to the effects of parameter estimation and/or nonnormality than the traditional methods.
