The continuous development of SPC is driven by challenges arising from practical applications across diverse industries. Among others, adaptive charts are becoming more and more popular due to their capability in tackling these challenges by learning unknown shifts and tracking time-varying patterns. This chapter reviews recent development of adaptive charts and classifies them into two categories: those with variable sampling parameters and those with variable design parameters. This review

As an extension to conventional multivariate charts, this work proposes a double-sided directionally variant chart. The proposed chart is capable of detecting shifts having the same or opposite directions as the reference vector and is more robust to processes with unpredictable shift directions.
