hi umesh
you should adjust the process (B)
- because the process is not under control (A), you have a series of seven values
below mean
- If control limits were set right in the 1st place, they should not be adjusted.
- measuring equipment usually get recalibrated as part of regular maintenance

kind regards Werner
