This best-selling engineering statistics text provides a practical approach that is more oriented to engineering and the chemical and physical sciences than many similar texts. It's packed with unique problem sets that reflect realistic situations engineers will encounter in their working lives.

Each copy of the book includes an e-Text on CD - that is a complete electronic version of book. This e-Text features enlarged figures, worked-out solutions, links to data sets for problems solved with a computer, multiple links between glossary terms and text sections for quick and easy reference, and a wealth of additional material to create a dynamic study environment for students.

Suitable for a one- or two-term Jr/Sr course in probability and statistics for all engineering majors.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
So, with the preceding in mind, this book takes your basic statistical analysis and aims it at the disciplines of engineering, physical, and chemical sciences. Authors Douglas Montgomery and George Runger have used exercises and examples from these disciplines so that readers will find the work more relevant to the they have chosen. For instance, Chapter 1 is an introduction to the field of statistics, explaining how engineers use statistical methodology as part of the engineering problem-solving process. Chapters 2 to 5 cover the basic concepts of probability, discrete and continuous random variables, probability distributions, expected values, joint probability distributions, and independence. Chapter 6 begins the treatment of statistical methods with random sampling, data summary and description techniques, including stem-and-leaf plots, histograms, box plots and probability plotting, and several types of time series plots. Next, Chapter 7 discusses point estimation of parameters. Chapter 8 discusses interval estimation for a single sample. On the other hand, Chapter 9 discusses hypothesis tests for a single sample.

In addition, Chapter 10 presents tests and confidence intervals for two samples. Chapters 11 and 12 present a simple and multiple linear regression. Next, Chapters 13 and 14 deal with single- and multi-factor experiments, respectively. Chapter 15 gives a brief introduction to the methods and applications of nonparametric statistics. And finally, Chapter 16 introduces statistical quality control, emphasizing the control chart and the fundamentals of statistical process control.

This book is packed with enough courses to set a movable statistical feast of probabilities. Statistics, after all, are the way you measure and compare things. At the end of the day, you'll really need to know how to use statistics so that you can make the best practical and efficient decisions in developing and designing new processes and systems.

John Vacca, the former computer security official (CSO) for NASA's space station program (Freedom), has written 38 books about advanced storage, computer security, and aerospace technology.

An introductory textbook for a first course in applied statistics and probability for undergraduate students in engineering and the physical or chemical sciences. All of the examples and exercises are engineering-based and in almost all cases they use real data. Throughout, output from Statgraphics and SAS is presented to exemplify what can be done with modern statistical software. Assumes one or two semesters of calculus. Annotation c.
