Synthetic Control Chart Time Series

Data Type

time series


This data consists of synthetically generated control charts.


Original Owner and Donor

Dr Robert Alcock
Date Donated: June 8, 1999

Data Characteristics

This dataset contains 600 examples of control charts synthetically generated by the process in Alcock and Manolopoulos (1999). There are six different classes of control charts:

  1. Normal
  2. Cyclic
  3. Increasing trend
  4. Decreasing trend
  5. Upward shift
  6. Downward shift

The following image shows ten examples from each class:

(A) Downward Trend. (B) Cyclic. (C) Normal. (D) Upward Shift. (E) Upward Trend. (F) Downward Shift.

Data Format

The data is stored in an ASCII file, 600 rows, 60 columns, with a single chart per line. The classes are organized as follows:
1-100   Normal
101-200 Cyclic
201-300 Increasing trend
301-400 Decreasing trend
401-500 Upward shift
501-600 Downward shift
