A time-weighted control chart detects small shifts in a process mean.
Time-weighted control charts combine information from the current and past observations. They are more sensitive to detecting small shifts in the process mean than a Shewhart chart, but slower at detecting large shifts.
The charts only monitor the process mean; monitoring the process variability requires the use of some other technique.
