Purpose: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the usefulness of the design of experiments in the analysis of multiparametric problems related to the quality assurance in radiotherapy. The main motivation is to use this statistical method to optimize the quality assurance processes in the validation of beam models. Method: Considering the Varian Eclipse system, eight parameters with several levels were selected: energy, MLC, depth, X, Y1 and Y2 jaw dimensions, wedge and wedge jaw. A Taguchi table was used to define 72 validation tests. Measurements were conducted in water using a CC04 on a TrueBeam STx, a TrueBeam Tx, a Trilogy and a 2300IX accelerator matched by the vendor. Dose was computed using the AAA algorithm. The same raw data was used for all accelerators during the beam modelling. Results: The mean difference between computed and measured doses was 0.1. ±. 0.5% for all beams and all accelerators with a maximum difference of 2.4% (under the 3% tolerance level). For all beams, the measured doses were within 0.6% for all accelerators. The energy was found to be an influencing parameter but the deviations observed were smaller than 1% and not considered clinically significant. Conclusion: Designs of experiment can help define the optimal measurement set to validate a beam model. The proposed method can be used to identify the prognostic factors of dose accuracy. The beam models were validated for the 4 accelerators which were found dosimetrically equivalent even though the accelerator characteristics differ. © 2017 Associazione Italiana di Fisica Medica.

In this paper, three new connections between Wavelets analysis and Statistical Quality Control are proposed. Firstly, we show that the Discrete Wavelet Transform, using Haar wavelet, is equivalent to the Xbar-R control scheme. Results concerning the distribution of wavelets coefficients, using others wavelets families, are presented, and then a new control chart, called DeWave, is proposed, in order to monitor the variability of the process. Secondly, the equivalence between the Likelihood Ratio and the Continuous Wavelet Transform, in terms of estimating the change time, is presented. Finally, we demonstrate that the Discrete Wavelet Transform is an equivalent representation of factorial Design Of Experiments. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.

In this paper a control chart for monitoring the process mean, called OWave (Orthogonal Wavelets), is proposed. The statistic that is plotted in the proposed control chart is based on weighted wavelets coefficients, which are provided through the Discrete Wavelets Transform using Daubechies db2 wavelets family. The statistical behavior of the wavelets coefficients when the mean shifts are occurring is presented, and the distribution of wavelets coefficients in the case of normality and independence assumptions is provided. The on-line algorithm of implementing the proposed method is also provided. The detection performance is based on simulation studies, and the comparison result shows that OWave control chart performs slightly better than Fixed Sample Size and Sampling Intervals control charts (X¯, EWMA, CUSUM) in terms of Average Run Length. In addition, illustrative examples of the new control chart are presented, and an application to Tennessee Eastman Process is also proposed. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd

Autocorrelation and non-normality of process characteristic variables are two main difficulties that industrial engineers must face when they should implement control charting techniques. This paper presents new issues regarding the probability distribution of wavelets coefficients. Firstly, we highlight that wavelets coefficients have capacities to strongly decrease autocorrelation degree of original data and are normally-like distributed, especially in the case of Haar wavelet. We used AR(1) model with positive autoregressive parameters to simulate autocorrelated data. Illustrative examples are presented to show wavelets coefficients properties. Secondly, the distributional parameters of wavelets coefficients are derived, it shows that wavelets coefficients reflect an interesting statistical properties for SPC purposes. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.

In this paper, we present a result regarding the probability distribution of wavelets coefficients. It extends the Theorem 1 that is presented in our previous work-Cohen, A. et al. Design of experiments and statistical process control using wavelets analysis. Control Engineering Practice. 2015- to include Biorthogonal wavelets. Then, a new control chart, called OWave (Orthogonal Wavelets), is proposed in order to detect mean change in the process. The statistic of the proposed control chart is based on weighted wavelets coefficients. Performance study shows that OWave control chart performs slightly better than the optimal version of EWMA control chart. © 2016, IFAC (International Federation of Automatic Control) Hosting by Elsevier Ltd.
