Editorial Reviews

Review

"students will continue to find this book useful as a reference text long after the course they bought it for has finished." (Quality & Reliability Engineering International, , March/April 2002) --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover

Learn how to achieve optimal experimentation

Edition after edition, Douglas Montgomery has provided statisticians, engineers, scientists, and managers with the most effective approach for learning how to design, conduct, and analyze experiments that optimize performance in products and processes. Now in this Sixth Edition, Montgomery has enhanced his best-selling text with timely new examples, expanded material on follow-up experimentation following a fractional factorial, and more coverage of split-plot designs.

You’ll learn how to use statistically designed experiments to:

  • Obtain information for characterization and optimization of systems
  • Improve manufacturing processes
  • Design and develop new processes and products
  • Evaluate material alternatives in product design
  • Improve the field performance, reliability, and manufacturing aspects of products
  • Learn how to conduct experiments effectively and efficiently

The book also illustrates two of today’s most powerful software tools for experimental design: Design-Expert® and Minitab®. Throughout the book, you’ll find output from these two programs, along with detailed discussion on how computers are currently used in the analysis and design of experiments. Data sets, supplemental materials, and sample projects are available online at www.wiley.com/college/montgomery. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

He also has a wealth of practical experience from his consulting work.

I think it is pretty well paced, and quite well illustrated with many examples.

Doug Montgomery got excellent statistical training at VPI. He also has a wealth of practical experience from his consulting work. His books on regression, statistical design and response surfaces are all well written and understandable to engineers. This 4th edition published in 1997 still contains all the useful information on factorial and fractional factorial designs. Chapter 14 is a wonderful up-to-date chapter that covers important process optimization topics not often covered in traditional design of experiments books. This includes response surface methods, mixture experiments, evolutionary operation and Taguchi methods. It does not require high level mathematics.

See Experiments by Wu and Hamada if you want a high mathematical level of presentation.

This text was used in a graduate course on the Design of Experiments. It has a great wealth of examples that span many different fields of industry, from pharmaceuticals to "tool and die" manufacturing. This text, when used along with a statistical software package, made research projects easy to design, implement, analyze and present to others. I found the chapters on reliability, determining sample size for mixed models (random and fixed variables), very helpful in my research.

This is one of the Best Works in DOE I have come across apart from the book Statistics for Experimenters by Box, Hunter and Hunter

This book, along with the Box, Hunter, and Hunter book (also available by Wiley) are good references for the experimenter.

This is the best book for beginners to DOE, students and for future reference.

Chapters 12 and 13 are useful for people interested on Gauge R&R studies (variance components models) and for those that have to understand and apply ISO/IEC 5725 standards at the laboratory.

A lot of references are listed at the end of the book.

Format: Hardcover
Having taken two experimental design classes with Dr. Montgomery himself, hands down this book is excellent, as is the author himself. A lot of the material that we used in our advanced level experimental design class comes from the extra material that is available for free of off the books supplemental website, and there is a great wealth of more advanced material in there that is worth printing off, and there is a lot of supplemental material. So if you feel solid on what is in the textbook, tackle the supplemental material to further delve into DOE topics. The book uses numerous examples using SAS, Minitab and Design-Expert and lots of enjoyable practice problems, so following along using any of the packages is pretty easy.
