Statistical monitoring of the quality of products and services has always been of fundamental importance for companies to remain healthy in an increasingly competitive market. Research and applications in the field of statistical process monitoring and control (SPMC) are undergoing several changes that accompany significant technological innovations in real applications, such as artificial intelligence, 3D printers, the Internet of Things, Big Data and machine-to-machine communication. For example, these new technologies enable faster and more reliable data collection that can be used to improve the effectiveness of quality control and monitoring methods, such as control charts.

Neste novo cenário, há um aumento do interesse e da demanda tanto por acadêmicos quanto por profissionais na área de monitoramento e controle estatístico de processos e pesquisadores vêm estudando novas estratégias para aumentar a eficiência de diversos gráficos de controle, como gráficos por variáveis ​​ou atributos, com parâmetros conhecidos e desconhecidos, para monitoramento da média e da variabilidade de processos univariados ou multivariados, com ou sem correlação.

The aim of this special issue is to capture some of the new trends and studies in this field. The aim is to identify recent research and new issues in the field, as well as future areas of interest. Original methodological contributions, along with applications and case studies are of interest. The special issue is aimed at Brazilian and international researchers working on these topics, to build possible collaborations.

Suitable topics related to Statistical Process Monitoring and Control include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Monitoring and non-parametric statistical process control;

  • Statistical control of multivariate processes;
