VLOOKUP in R with Schwartau Beehive Data

July 1, 2019 | R on

I started learning R back in 2016 in college thanks to a couple of my professors who used it to teach statistics: Dr. Grimshaw and Dr. Lawson. Thanks to the R community I’ve learned a lot more since then, but recently I did an embarrassing Google search for “how to ...

Individuals Control Charts

May 27, 2019 | R on

This post is a follow-up two my two recent posts on generating control charts in R, and animating them. One thing that I’ve been wondering about is how to calculate a range chart without using a package like ggQC or qcc. I knew that I could do it using ...

How to Animate a Control Chart

April 4, 2019 | R on

Recently, I wrote a post about creating control charts in R, and now I want to experiment with animating one of those charts. Lets start with the tidyverse, gganimate, and ggQC.
Now, lets rebuild the last control chart from my previous post.
# Generate sample data
example_df <- data_frame(values = rnorm(n=30*5, mean = 25, sd = .005),
                         subgroup = rep(1:30, 5),
                         n = rep(1:5, each = 30)) %>%
  add_row(values = rnorm(n=2*5, mean = 25 + .006, sd = .005),
          subgroup = rep(31:32, 5),
          n = rep(1:5, each = 2)) 

violations <- example_df %>%
  QC_Violations(value = "values", grouping = "subgroup", method = "xBar.rBar") %>%
  filter(Violation == TRUE) %>%
  select(data, Index) %>%

ggQC_example <- example_df %>%
  ggplot(aes(x = subgroup, y = values)) +
  stat_summary(fun.y = mean, geom = "line", aes(group = 1)) +
  stat_summary(fun.y = mean, geom = "point", aes(group = 1)) +
  stat_QC(method = "xBar.rBar", auto.label = TRUE, label.digits = 4) +
  scale_x_continuous(expand =  expand_scale(mult = c(.05, .15))) + # Pad the x-axis for the labels
  ylab("x-bar") +
  theme_bw() +
  geom_point(data = violations, aes(x = Index, y = data), color = "red", group = 1)
You can see that I added ...

Creating a Favicon with R

February 28, 2019 | R on

I use the Hugo Coder theme for this website, but I don’t like the default favicon, so I decided to make a new one using ggplot2. For those of you who don’t know, a favicon is the little icon that shows up on your browser tab next to ...

Testing out ggQC

February 10, 2019 | R on

R is a great language for statistical process control largely because there are several packages which make it quite easy, including qcc, SixSigma, and a new one that I want to explore in this post called ggQC. I’ve been using qcc for a while and I trust its calculations, ...
