In the field of statistical process control (SPC), control charts for attributes are widely used to detect the out-of-control condition by checking the number of nondefective units or nondefective in a sample. In this article, we use the average time to signal (ATS) and the average number of observations to signal (ANOS) to evaluate the performance of the optimal variable sample size and sampling interval (VSSI) improved square root transformation (ISRT) mean square error (MSE) (VSSI_ ISRT_ MSE) control chart for attribute data. In addition, this control chart will be used to monitor: (1) the difference between the process mean and the target value, and (2) the process variance shifts. We found that the optimal VSSI_ ISRT_ MSE chart performs better than the specific VSSI, the optimal variable sampling interval (VSI), and the fixed parameters (FP) ISRT_MSE charts. An example is given to illustrate this new proposed approach.
