McGraw Hill Professional, Jun 5, 2012 - Technology & Engineering - 512 pages
The latest experimental design techniques for quality improvement
"The methods taught in this book are a major contribution to statistical methods as an aid to engineers, as well as to those in industry, education, or government who are trying to understand the meaning of fi gures derived from comparisons or experiments." -- W. EDWARDS DEMING
Co-written by three recipients of the Deming Medal awarded by the American Society for Quality (ASQ), Quality Improvement through Planned Experimentation, Third Edition discusses the principles and methodologies for planning and conducting experiments to improve products, processes, or systems.
Fully revised with up-to-date case studies and incorporating new software, this authoritative guide fosters the sequential building of knowledge essential for implementing effective improvements. End-of-chapter exercises reinforce what you've learned, and forms for designing planned experiments help you to integrate the methods in the book into your daily work. The methods of planned experimentation provide an opportunity to better meet the needs of customers, reduce costs, and increase productivity by effecting verifiably beneficial changes.
