The design of a control chart has been presented using a belief estimator by assuming that the quantitative characteristic of interest follows the gamma distribution. The authors present the structure of the proposed chart and derive the average run lengths for in-control and a shifted process. The average run lengths for various specified parameters have been reported. The efficiency of the proposed chart has been compared to existing control charts. The application of the proposed chart is illustrated with the help of simulated data.
