From the Back Cover
The new classic
For many years, the First Edition of Statistics forExperimenters has been a premier guide and reference for theapplication of statistical methods, especially as applied toexperimental design. Rewritten and updated, this new edition ofStatistics for Experimenters adopts the same approach as thelandmark First Edition by demonstrating through workedexamples, readily understood graphics, and the appropriate use ofcomputers. Catalyzing innovation, problem solving, and discovery,the Second Edition provides experimenters with thescientific and statistical tools needed to maximize the knowledgegained from investigation and research. The authors' practicalapproach starts with a problem that needs to be solved and thenillustrates the statistical methods best utilized in all stages ofdesign and analysis.
Providing even greater accessibility for its users, theSecond Edition reflects new techniques and technologiesdeveloped since the publication of the classic First Edition.
Among the new topics included are:
- Graphical analysis of variance
- Computer analysis to determine best follow-up runs
- Simplification by transformation
- Hands-on experimentation using response surface methods
- Further development of robust product and process design usingsplit-plot arrangements and minimization of error transmission
- Introduction to process control, forecasting, and timeseries
- Illustrations demonstrating how multiresponse problems can besolved using the concepts of active and inert factor spaces andcanonical spaces
- Bayesian approaches to model selection and sequentialexperimentation
- Applications for Six Sigma initiatives in a variety ofdisciplines
- Aappendix featuring Quaquaversal quotes from notedstatisticians, scientists, and philosophers that embellish keyconcepts and enliven the learning process
Computations in the Second Edition can be done utilizingthe statistical language R. Functions for displaying ANOVA andlambda plots, Bayesian screening, and model building are allincluded, and R packages are available on a related FTP site. Thesetopics can also be applied utilizing easy-to-use commercialsoftware packages.
Complete with applications covering the physical, engineering,biological, and social sciences, Statistics forExperimenters is designed for all individuals who must usestatistical approaches to conduct an experiment. Experimenters needonly a basic understanding of mathematics to master all thestatistical methods presented. This text is an essential referencefor all researchers and an invaluable course book for undergraduateand graduate students.
