Engineering Statistics / Edition 5

Montgomery, Runger, and Hubele's Engineering Statistics, 5th Edition provides modern coverage of engineering statistics by focusing on how statistical tools are integrated into the engineering problem-solving process. All major aspects of engineering statistics are covered, including descriptive statistics, probability and probability distributions, statistical test and confidence intervals for one and two samples, building regression models, designing and analyzing engineering experiments, and statistical process control. This edition features new introductions, revised content to help students better understand ANOVA, new examples to help calculate probability and approximately 80 new exercises.

About the Author

Douglas C. Montgomery, Regents’ Professor of Industrial Engineering and Statistics at Arizona State University, received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute, the editor of Quality and Reliability Engineering International and a former editor of the Journal of Quality Technology.

George C. Runger, Ph.D., is a Professor in the department of Industrial Engineering at Arizona State University. His research is on data mining, real-time monitoring and control, and other data-analysis methods with a focus on large, complex, multivariate data streams. His work is funded by grants from the National Science Foundation and corporations. In addition to academic work, he was a senior engineer at IBM. He holds degrees in industrial engineering and statistics.

Norma Faris Hubele, Professor of Engineering and Statistics at Arizona State University, and Director of Strategic Initiatives for the Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering, has taught and done research at the University level and with industry for over 20 years. Her cutting edge educational research has been supported by the National Science Foundation and is reflected in this textbook.
