In some application, quality of product or performance of a process described by some functional relationships between some variables known as multivariate linear profile in the literature. In this paper, we propose Max-MEWMA and Max-MCUSUM control charts for simultaneous monitoring of mean vector and covariance matrix in multivariate multiple linear regression profiles in Phase II. The proposed control charts also have ability to diagnose either the location or variation of the process is responsible for out-of-control signal. The performance of the proposed control charts is compared with existing method through Monte-Carlo simulations. Finally, the applicability of the proposed control charts is illustrated using a real case of calibration application in the automotive industry.
