Practicing engineers and scientists often have a need to utilize statistical approaches to solving problems in an experimental setting. Yet many have little formal training in statistics. Statistical Design and Analysis of Experiments gives such readers a carefully selected, practical background in the statistical techniques that are most useful to experimenters and data analysts who collect, analyze, and interpret data.

The First Edition of this now-classic book garnered praise in the field. Now its authors update and revise their text, incorporating readers’ suggestions as well as a number of new developments. Statistical Design and Analysis of Experiments, Second Edition emphasizes the strategy of experimentation, data analysis, and the interpretation of experimental results, presenting statistics as an integral component of experimentation from the planning stage to the presentation of conclusions.

Giving an overview of the conceptual foundations of modern statistical practice, the revised text features discussions of:

  • The distinctions between populations or processes and samples; parameters and statistics; and mathematical and statistical modeling
  • The design and analysis of experiments with factorial structures, unbalanced experiments, crossed and nested factors, and random factor effects
  • Confidence-interval and hypothesis-testing procedures for single-factor and multifactor experiments
  • Quantitative predictors and factors, including linear regression modeling using least-squares estimators, with diagnostic techniques for assessing model assumptions

Ideal for both students and professionals, this focused and cogent reference has proven to be an excellent classroom textbook with numerous examples. It deserves a place among the tools of every engineer and scientist working in an experimental setting.
