Markovchart: Markov Chain-Based Cost-Optimal Control Charts

Functions for cost-optimal control charts with a focus on health care applications. Compared to assumptions in traditional control chart theory, here, we allow random shift sizes, random repair and random sampling times. The package focuses on X-bar charts with a sample size of 1 (representing the monitoring of a single patient at a time). The methods are described in Zempleni et al. (2004) <doi:10.1002/asmb.521>, Dobi and Zempleni (2019) <doi:10.1002/qre.2518> and Dobi and Zempleni (2019) <>.
