About the Author

Dr. Donald J. Wheeler has been actively planting the seeds of transformation in companies and organizations around the world for over 25 years. His classes have been credited with being the essential element in turning companies around and taking them from red ink to black. In less spectacular ways his seminars have been the foundation for establishing learning cultures within many organizations in various industries. Unlike so many classes where the emphasis is upon techniques, Dr. Wheeler's classes go far beyond mere techniques to teaching the way of thinking needed to use those techniques effectively. He has worked with over 250 companies in chemical processing, health care, medical equipment, information technology, steel and aluminum production, agribusiness, food production and processing, electronics, pulp and paper processing, automotive suppliers, government agencies, and banking. Dr. Wheeler has taught over 1000 seminars in the USA, Canada, Mexico, England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Portugal, South Africa, Brazil and Malaysia. Over 60,000 students from the US and 32 countries on five continents have attended his seminars, which are held in Knoxville, Tennessee. Marketing research shows that word of mouth advertising brings in the majority of these students. We love it when our clients and students tell their friends and colleagues how good Dr. Wheeler's classes are! Along with his acclaimed seminars, Dr. Wheeler has also authored or coauthored twenty books which collectively form the definitive library for Discovery through Data Analysis. His books are being used throughout the US and in over 41 countries around the world. Dr. Wheeler has M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Statistics from Southern Methodist University. He taught at the University of Tennessee for 12 years where he was an Associate Professor of Statistics. He is a Fellow both the American Statistical Association and the American Society for Quality, and he was an associate of Dr. W. Edwards Deming until his death in 1993. In short, Dr. Wheeler is the internationally recognized expert on Data Analysis and SPC. He has the knowledge, the experience, and the ability to communicate that knowledge and experience to others. For more information on Dr. Wheeler's books and seminars, contact SPC Press at 800-545-8602.

Format: Hardcover
This is the ONE book in my 20 years of reading that has put it all together in one easy to read text.
I have never read a textbook that has made me rethink everything that I was doing from a Quality perspective and change our system. This is the one.

It has all of his Quality Mag papers and writings, theories and great simple examples in one textbook.

Dr. Wheeler has a masterpiece here.
This is a revolutionary text that describes and provides solutions for common issues facing common measurement issues.

We are currently implementing his approaches to quantify and describe our measurement systems. I will say that with some of the stability and repeatability studies that he describes, has shown us the errors of our ways. We are not making wrong decisions that cost thousands of dollars a day due to measurement error.

CMM measurements are the best to make your decisions upon. Of course not. We need an estimate of measurement error to determine this.

Do you have rubber rulers? We cannot make decisions upon this can we?

How about this? +/- .001 are the spec limits. You measure .0014. Do you reject? This book will tell you if you can accept or reject and how much confidence in you measurement system you have to state this. This is the real power of stability.

How could you read about stability in college textbooks and not introduce a system in your lab or process to monitor this and determine when calibration is needed? Wow, donno. How do you then calibrate your system effectively?

I have had 5 years of discussions about how may decimal places we should document. Easy... PE calculations in this book.

Do we have rubber parts? Eek. What do we do about this. Dr. Wheeler helps.

Format: Hardcover
...and it's not even close...

The EMP process described here, properly understood and applied, provides ALL the required insight into the measurement process, including concepts of measurement variation, the components and relationships between the sources of variation, and classifications of measurement systems (including recommended actions for monitoring as needed).

Using the techniques contained in this book allows the user to freedom NOT to be fooled by the "industry accepted" methods out there that serve to condemn perfectly adequate measurement systems (the impact of measurement error is almost always overstated), NOT to be confused by sloppy doctrine and false "authority" by published standard, NOT to be confronted with indefensible mathematical slobber masquerading as "legitimate practice", NOT to be left without the answers to fundamental questions asked about the measurement (e.g. Can the measurement method detect variation in the product? Is the system suitable for measurement resolution with respect to specification limits and specification range? How can manufacturing specifications or guard band limits be developed using sound statistical techniques as opposed to atmospheric extraction? Does an individual measurement represent conformance?), and NOT to be left with little or no opportunity for discretion in interpreting the utility of measurement outputs.

The EMP concepts of Probable Error (the actual measurement resolution), intraclass correlation, watershed specification limits, and the error relationships between roundoff and measurement noise (for establishing ideal range for reporting increments) are clearly defined. Examples are also provided from "real world" experiences to illustrate these concepts.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What i like most about this book is the simple Language and lot of real life examples. It requires some basic knowledge of statistic though but really simple language to perform any kind of measurement system checks. One more improvement i found is the comparison with age old R&R checks which in some way incorrect.
I am still reading this book and more i read it more i am loving it. Minor mistakes are there but those can be of no value if you understand the real concepts. I have seen many of its standards are used in famous statistical software's worldwide.
I would recommend every reliability engineers to have one if they want to improve their measurement systems in real sense.
