Statistical Process Control (X-bar and R-charts)

A part that connects two levels should have a distance between the two holes of 4". It has been deternined that X-bar and R-charts should be set up to determine if the process is in statistical control. The following 100 samples of sample size four were collected. Calculate the control limits and plot the control charts.
Is this process in control? Why or why not?
