Note: It is recommended you get some help the first time you use this template.
In order to preserve the template, use the "file/save as" function to save the formulas and graph to another file.
When you print the XmR chart, look in page preview to make sure that both charts will print. If it looks as if only one will print, you will need to click in the upper
right hand corner so that the entire page is selected.
Data entry sections have been designed and are located on the left hand side of the "template" spreadsheet
Titles on the graphs are still needed and should be added using either the File/Page Set Up/Header Footer and/or the Chart/Chart Options/Titles functions
If additional rows are needed or if rows need to be deleted, delete or insert rows somewhere between the first and last row (instead of adding them to the end of
the sheet). This will help to eliminate the need to reenter formulas or to change the data ranges for the graphs so as to include additional rows.
Templates are set up to automatically recalculate values with each data entry although you will need to copy the corresponding cells from the sections used for
graphing in order for these cells to fill in. Copy cells from the last line of cells that are filled in to get the data that has been entered to transfer into the graph
sections. This is most easily accomplished by highlighting the cells that you want to copy and dragging the corner square of the highlighted section downward.
In order to evaluate the effectiveness of a change, it may be necessary to freeze or possibly change the parameters of some of the calculations (e.g. the mean,
UCL, LCL, etc.). Freezing can be accomplished by changing the range of the calculations and changing (i.e. adding a new control limit or mean) can be
accomplished by entering an additional area for calculations and by changing the referenced cells on the graph sections.
Graphs that feed off of the template sheet are set up and can be found on the sheet next to the template sheet.
