Abstract

Construction of modified Shewhart charts to monitor quality variations of apricots coated with edible sucrose polyesters in storage are described by using data based on changes in weight, soluble solids, pH, ascorbic acid, and Hunter colour scale. These control charts may be used to maintain the inevitable quality loss within acceptable limits, and make it possible to readjust the storage conditions if the acceptable limits should be violated.
