Designed to teach engineers to think statistically so that data can be collected and used intelligently in solving real problems, this text is intended for calculus-based, one-semester introduction to engineering statistics courses. Although traditional topics are covered, this edition takes a modern, data-oriented, problem-solving, process-improvement view of engineering statistics. The emphasis is on collecting good data through sample surveys and experiments and on applying it to real problems.
