XmR is a moving range chart. It is used when only samples of size one are available. The moving range statistic is

The control limits are computed using

Where is the mean of the
observations, is the mean of the moving
ranges and is is the mean of the
distribution of the ranges of *n* samples from the normal distribution
with mean zero and standard deviation one.

The viscosity of aircraft primer paint was measured. Since the paint is produced in batches, only single samples are available (Montgomery 251).
