Statistical process adjustment (SPA) is utilised prevalently in novel manufacturing scenarios. When quality characteristics rather than internal process variables are inspected for the purpose of quality control, data with different resolutions may be collected. This paper proposes a Bayesian framework for parameter estimation when only categorical observations are available. The proposed method incorporates categorical information recursively and updates parameter estimates in real time.
