A Shewhart X¯ control chart is developed to monitor the process mean for large production runs. It has not been considered appropriate to monitor the process mean using the Shewhart X¯ control chart for small production runs. In this paper we propose the design of X¯ control chart to monitor the process mean for small production runs. For various combinations of the number of samples and the size of each sample, control coefficients of X¯ control chart are computed by numerical methods. Using these results, the X¯ control chart for small production runs is developed to monitor the process mean correctly. Finally, the design procedure of the X¯ control chart for small production runs and the results of misusing the Shewhart X¯ control chart are illustrated by an example.
