Explicit Formulas of ARL on Double Moving Average Control Chart for Monitoring Process Mean of ZIPINAR(1) Model with an Excessive Number of Zeros

Kobkun Raweesawat, Saowanit Sukparungsee


Usually, the performance of control charts are widely measured by average run length (ARL). In this paper, the derivative explicit formulas of the ARL for double moving average (DMA) control chart are proposed for monitoring the process mean of zero-inflated Poisson integer-valued autoregressive first-order (ZIPINAR(1)) model. This model is fit when there are an excessive number of zeros in the count data. The performance of the DMA control chart is compared with the results of moving average and Shewhart control charts by considering from out of control average run length (ARL1). The numerical results found that the DMA control chart performed better than other control charts in order to detect mean shift in the process. In addition, the real-world application of the DMA control chart for ZIPINAR(1) process is addressed.
