Cumulative Sum (CUSUM) control schemes are widely used in industry for process and measurement control. Most CUSUM applications have been for continuous variables. There have been fewer uses of CUSUM control schemes when the response is a count such as the number of defects per unit or the occurrence of an accident. This article describes design and implementation procedures for counted data CUSUM's (these are sometimes called CUSUM's for attributes). These CUSUM's are easy to design and implement; they can be used to detect both increases and decreases in the count level. Enhancements to the CUSUM scheme. including the fast initial response (FIR) feature and the robust CUSUM are discussed. These enhancements speed up the detection of changes in the count level and guard against the effects of atypical or outlier observations.
