We investigate the statistical performance of an Exponentially Weighted Moving Average (EWMA) control charts for monitoring the location of a quality characteristic in a production process with a finite horizon and a small number of scheduled inspections. An extensive numerical investigation is carried out to get the statistical performance of both the EWMA t control chart for normal observations and the distribution-free EWMA Sign (SN) control chart. The property to have varying control limits at each inspection allows these EWMA control charts to be very sensitive to shifts in the location. A non-homogeneous Markov chain model is used to evaluate the statistical properties of the EWMA control charts with varying control limits. An illustrative example shows the implementation of the EWMA SN control chart on a real data set collected in a beverage company.
