In the present paper, we develop a fuzzy bivariate Poisson (FBP) control chart based on a fuzzy c chart. The FBP chart is used to monitor the sum of the nonconformities of each quality characteristic. There are two contributions of this work. First, we propose a new fuzzy parameter estimation to create a triangular fuzzy number (TFN). Second, our control chart is flexible, because we involve the αcut to measure the level of tightness of inspection. Furthermore, the statistic of FBP is being able to visualise the monitoring process in a graphical form. In addition, the simulation study indicates that the performance of our proposed chart, based on average run length (ARL), is more sensitive than the performance of a conventional bivariate Poisson (BP) chart. Moreover, an illustration example shows that the FBP chart has relatively more sensitive performance compared to the conventional BP chart.
