Graphical displays such as histograms and probability
plots are commonly used for process capability analysis.
You can use the INSET statement to enhance these plots
by adding a box or table (referred to as an inset) of
summary statistics directly to the graph.
An inset typically displays statistics calculated by the
but can also
display values provided in a SAS data set.
A typical application of the INSET
statement is to augment a histogram with the sample size,
mean, standard deviation, and process capability index
Note that the INSET statement by itself does not produce
a display and must be used with the CDFPLOT,
COMPHISTOGRAM, HISTOGRAM, PPPLOT, PROBPLOT, or QQPLOT
You can use options in the INSET statement to
- specify the position of the inset
- specify a header for the inset table
- specify graphical enhancements, such as background colors,
text colors, text height, text font, and drop shadows
