The von Mises distribution is widely used for modeling angular data. When such data are seen in a quality control setting, there may be interest in checking whether the values are in statistical control or have gone out of control. A cumulative sum (cusum) control chart has desirable properties for checking whether the distribution has changed from an in-control to an out-of-control setting. This paper develops cusums for a change in the mean direction and concentration of angular data and illustrates some of their properties
