This research considers the process mean wanders according to a first-order autoregressive model. During the in-control period the process mean wanders around its target value, and after the assignable cause occurrence, around an off-target value. The cost model proposed by Duncan was used to select the X bar chart's parameters and the genetic algorithm to meet their optimum values. The wandering movement required a Markov chain to obtain the properties of the control chart. The autocorrelation among mean values increases the monitoring costs and reduces significantly the chart's efficiency. (c) 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
