Abstract.A double sampling (DS) $\overline{X}$ chart is proposed by Daudin [#!3!#] as an alternative to the classical Shewhart $\overline{X}$ chart for the monitoring of the process mean. The DS $\overline{X}$ chart gives better efficiency than the Shewhart $\overline{X}$ chart. When using a DS $\overline{X}$ chart, a decision about the state of a process is made based on either the information in the first sample alone or the combined information of samples one and two. In this paper a double sampling (DS) $S^2$ chart will be proposed for the monitoring of the process variance.
