Qlik Sense Process Control Charts

Has anyone had any luck implementing a process control chart in Qlik Sense? Due to the limited control in the chart setup, I don't think a fully functioning and visual control chart can be created.

What works:

The calculations for avg, avg across all points, stdev, UCL and LCL.


- With each line as a measure, we can't control the color of the individual lines

- Similarly, it's not possible to conditionally color dots for a single measure to show outliers

- One way to control the color of each line is to change the measures to an inline table of dimensions and then control the colors based on an expression. The downside here is that Sense will no longer show the legend so we'd have to create a separate image object to act as a legend

Below is my best attempt so far, but it still has the challenges listed above. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? I'm considering just building an extension in its place, but wanted to make sure I explored all other possible opportunities.

As far as I know you are right with your assuptions. I would love to see an extension to build control charts and I think it is a good idea. I couldn't find any project on Branch that has done what you intend to do...
