Control charts that are used for monitoring the process and detecting the out-of-control signals are important tools for statistical process control. It is simple to estimate source(s) for out-of-control signals in the univariate process, whereas it is difficult to identify the source(s) in the multivariate processes. The reason is that these kinds of processes require monitoring and controlling of more than one quality characteristics simultaneously. In this study, the proposed model is expected to detect the source(s) for out-of-control signals without help of an expert in the process, by using a multilayer neural network. This model was implemented in furniture fasteners manufacturing. Time gain was obtained while detecting source(s) for out-of-control signals.
