Control Charts

Charting techniques are a great way to monitor and control systems. The techniques can be applied equally in processing, quality and laboratory environments.  Click the link below to open a simple spreadsheet which you can use or download to set up your own control chart(s).

wortBlending Calculator

The link below opens a spreadsheet which can be used to calculate the weighted average of up a six component blend.  In this sheet “missing data points” do not carry through as zero and the blend is therefore based on the data available.

Weighted average calculations are routinely carried out in malting operations in order to predict the quality of blended batches prior to release to the customer.
