In this study, a modified procedure of ranked set sampling is used to build the limits of X-bar chart. The performance of the X-bar chart based on ranked data is compared with the traditional limit specifications based on simple random samples. The simulation results showed that the control charts using the robust ranked set samples dominate the control charts based on other sampling techniques in terms of Average Run Length (ARL).
