Contemporarily, enterprises strive to continuously enhance quality which is a basis of customer satisfaction. Numerous advancements to the control charting scheme have been made to enhance process monitoring. In this thesis, the variable parameters chart with auxiliary information (abbreviated as VP-AI) is proposed. The VP-AI chart is designed with a regression estimator that has an improved precision due to the use of auxiliary variable to estimate the population mean. By adopting the Markov chain method, the average time to signal (ATS) and expected ATS (EATS) formulae are derived for known and unknown shift sizes. The findings show that the VP-AI chart prevails over the basic VP chart and justifies the integration of auxiliary information to improve the sensitivity of the VP chart. A comparison of the VP-AI chart with its competing charts shows that, for all shifts, the performance of the VP-AI chart surpasses the Shewhart AI (SH-AI), synthetic AI (SYN-AI) and variable sample size and sampling interval AI (VSSI-AI) charts considerably. Additionally, for most shifts, the VP-AI chart has a superior performance in comparison with the exponentially weighted moving average AI (EWMA-AI) and run sum AI (RS-AI) charts. The application of the VP-AI chart is shown using an illustrative example based on a real dataset. In many situations, the process is multivariate in nature, where more than one quality characteristic has to be monitored simultaneously. Furthermore, many companies have adopted the short production runs technique to be more flexible and specialized. Hence, in this thesis, the fixed sample size (FSS) 2 T short-run chart is developed
