Emphasizes the strategy of experimentation, data analysis, and the interpretation of experimental results.

  • Features numerous examples using actual engineering and scientific studies.
  • Presents statistics as an integral component of experimentation from the planning stage to the presentation of the conclusions.
  • Deep and concentrated experimental design coverage, with equivalent but separate emphasis on the analysis of data from the various designs.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With an excellent presentation, this is suitable as a textbook in a graduate level course in design of experiments." (Journal of Statistical Computation and Simulation, April 2005)

"...can really provide useful information for the intended audience..." (Zentralblatt Math, Vol. 1029, 2004)

“...a practitioner’s guide to statistical methods for designing and analyzing experiments...” (Quarterly of Applied Mathematics, Vol. LXI, No. 3, September 2003)

"...a perfect desktop reference..." (Technometrics, Vol. 45, No. 3, August 2003)

Featuring numerous examples, the authors treat statistics as an integral component of experimentation from the planning stage to presentation of the conclusions. The book provides background information, presents elementary descriptive statistics and graphical displays, and discusses experimental design and analysis. The final part is devoted to regression modelling. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
