I like the visualization provided by the Control Chart Builder. In particular I like the stacked Xbar-R plots in one figure, the built-in distribution with normal distribution fit overlay, and automatic control limits calculated overlaid on the charts. Unfortunately, many different data sources I'm working with aren't entered in full to our JMP tables. Mean, range and standard devivation are calculated at the source and only these final values are entered into our tables due to limitations in automation at the moment. I would like to use this data in building the control charts so that I can have a full Xbar-R or Xbar-S chart with the data from these source columns. I've not had luck figuring out a way to do this - I can only get it to plot as an individual measurement with a moving range. Is there a way that I can point it to the mean and range/standard deviation data columns to construct the charts from these sources? Or will I have to write a custom script to mimic these plots? I am somewhat familiar with JSL and could work through a script for this but it seems like it would be far more involved especially given the need to support many different data sources. Being able to assemble the charts in the builder would be more user friendly for everyone on the team to work with. Thanks, Steve
