How do I add labels to control limits and mean lines on a control chart?

Is it possible to label the calculated control limit values and mean lines directly on a control chart?  I realize the information is reported in a table, but I'd like the lines on the plot to be labeled with this information.

I used the annotate tool with the phase to accomplish the following.

In the Analyze>Quality & Process>Control Chart platform the UCL and LCL are labeled.

Hi,

Thanks for your response.  I should have clarified, I have my data organized by phases.  I would like to have the value of the limits and means displayed for each phase.  This is not a default setting, I have not been able to find a setting or script that will accomplish this - I am new to JMP though.

Thanks!

Hi,

That is helpful, but because I have over 100 plots to make on a regular basis it is a lot of manual work. Do you know of a command that will report the value for the LCL or UCL in the annotation boxes? Or, is there another way to do this in a more “automated” approach?

Thanks,

Jackie

There's no inbuilt command to reproduce Lou's approach, or a near equivalent. It would be possible to write a script to add the annotations automatically, but it would take some work to avoid label collisions and so on.

Thank you Lou and Ian for helping me understand.  It sounds like it may be some work, but I'm going to give it a try!

If you find an easy way to script this let me know. I've been stuck labeling my control chart limits and means via the annotate tool.

If after you add the manual annotations on your control chart, you go to the red triangle and select save script, and save it to the script window, you will see that the code displayed will contain the JSL required to add the annotations you are manually adding.
