Various approaches have been used in the laboratory and non-laboratory setting to measure processes. One challenge in using data is separating the “signal” from the “noise”. In this module, the concepts of X-charts and Moving Range charts will be introduced to demonstrate how a laboratory can effectively measure its processes. Moving away from chasing every blip in the data, the use of process behavior charts will remove wasted time chasing the noise in our system. Hands on exercises and use of a virtual laboratory’s data will generate a deeper understanding of how to best monitor and harness our data.
