The Attribute Control Chart in Power BI offers a comprehensive view of process quality by allowing users to monitor defects/defectives and their corresponding metrics. This visual supports six types of Attribute Control Charts, including:

  • c chart: Monitors the number of defects in each sample when the sample size is constant.
  • u chart: Tracks the number of defects per unit when the sample size varies.
  • Laney u’ chart: A modified version of the u chart to adjust for overdispersion or underdispersion in your data.
  • p chart: Observes the proportion of defective items in each sample when the sample size varies.
  • Laney p’ chart: A modified version of the p chart to adjust for overdispersion or underdispersion in your data.
  • np chart: Displays the count of defective items in each sample when the sample size is constant.


  • Improved process visibility: Offers a visually intuitive representation of process performance, empowering users to make data-driven decisions and drive continuous improvement initiatives.
  • Early detection of anomalies: Enables early detection of deviations from expected performance levels, helping to mitigate quality issues and prevent costly defects.
  • Enhanced collaboration: Facilitates collaboration and communication among cross-functional teams by providing a shared understanding of process performance metrics and trends.

Sample use cases

  • Manufacturing: Monitor defect rates in production lines to ensure product quality and reduce waste.
  • Healthcare: Track the occurrence of adverse events or medical errors to enhance patient safety and care quality.
  • Customer Service: Analyze the frequency of customer complaints or service errors to identify areas for process improvement and enhance customer satisfaction.

Key Features of the Attribute Control Chart

  • Dynamic data analysis: Users can explore and analyze data trends by filtering and slicing data based on various attributes such as time periods, product categories, or production lines.

  • Automatic signal detection: The visual automatically detects significant signals in your data, allowing users to focus on signals and ignore random noise.
  • Format the objects: All lines, markers and axes can be formatted independently, and support theme settings.

  • Full bookmark support: like any of the standard visuals the Attribute Control Chart supports Bookmarks.
  • Drill-Down capability: Users can drill down into specific data points to investigate underlying factors contributing to quality issues or improvements.
  • Real-Time monitoring: Provides real-time updates as new data is ingested, enabling users to stay informed about process performance and take timely corrective actions.
