Summary

Illustrates basic statistical concepts with extensive applications in engineering and scientific contexts. The text includes optional theoretical exercises allowing instructors who choose to emphasize theory to do so without requiring additional materials.

  • Many new applied exercises are based on information from recent engineering and scientific journals, magazine articles, and news reports; all information is referenced.
  • A section on "Detecting Normal Distributions" (Chapter 5) gives students insights on when it is reasonable to assume that underlying data is normally distributed.
  • A comprehensive example on model building (Chapter 13).
  • Emphasis on the regression approach to a Nova (also presents the traditional approach).
  • Two sections discussing principles of experimental design--ie., noise-reducing and volume-increasing design (Chapter 14).
  • Section on Total Quality Management (Chapter 16).
