This is a special, one-time volume, commemorating the 80th birthday of George E. P. Box. It contains over 75 articles on quality and quality-related issues, written by Box himself since 1982. Previous to this book, the editors published a similar volume on Box' writings up to 1982; it has since become a standard and useful reference for students and practitioners alike in the field of statistics.

From the Back Cover:

A collection of masterworks on quality technology from the giant in the field

The chapters of this book are from the recent writings of George E. P. Box, an acknowledged world leader in the application and theory of quality methodology to management, process improvement, process design, and discovery.

Box’s unique ability to explain complex ideas simply and appealingly with wit and cogent illustration is well known. It draws on profound knowledge and extensive industrial experience. In the past, these abilities have led to the creation of such techniques as response surface methods, time series analysis for forecasting and control, evolutionary operation, and applied Bayesian methods.

Over the past fifteen years, Box’s work with many distinguished colleagues has been directed to the development and better understanding of quality techniques and how they can drive creativity and discovery. Key features of Box on Quality and Discovery include:

  • Five separate sections on (I) management issues, (II) experimental design, (III) sequential investigation for discovery, (IV) process control for monitoring and feedback adjustment, and (V) reduction of variation and design of robust products and processes
  • Edited by five eminent quality practitioners and statisticians from industry and academia
  • Superb subject and author index for easy reference
  • An additional key contribution from Stu Hunter

Published in celebration of George Box’s 80th birthday, this incomparable volume is destined to remain the definitive reference on statistical quality for many years to come.
