Description : STATISTICAL METHODS FOR ENGINEERS offers a balanced, streamlined one-semester introduction to Engineering Statistics that emphasizes the statistical tools most needed by practicing engineers. Using real engineering problems with real data based on actual journals and consulting experience in the field, students see how statistics fits within the methods of engineering problem solving. The text teaches students how to think like an engineer at analyzing real data and planning a project the same way they will in their careers. Case studies simulate problems students will encounter professionally and tackle on long-term job projects. The presentation makes extensive use of graphical analysis, and use of statistical software is encouraged for problem-solving to illustrate how engineers rely on computers for data analysis. The authors relate their own extensive professional experience as engineers in short margin notes called Voice of Experience that lend valuable context to how students will apply concepts in the field and why they're important to learn. And a rich companion website provides hours of multimedia lecture presentation narrated by the authors to show the material related live by different voices, simulating how students will listen and learn from multiple colleagues in their jobs. A flexible organization allows instructors to emphasize the topics they need and cater the presentation to different engineering majors in their courses.

Description : Presents real engineering data and takes a truly modern approach to statistics. An engineering case study runs through the text and gives conceptual continuity through each chapter.
Description : This work details the fundamentals of applied statistics and experimental design, presenting a unified approach to data handling that emphasizes the analysis of variance, regression analysis and the use of Statistical Analysis System computer programs. This edition: discusses modern nonparametric methods; contains information on statistical process control and reliability; supplies fault and event trees; furnishes numerous additional end-of-chapter problems and worked examples; and more.
Description : Revised and expanded edition of a text that is intended as a basic introductory course in applied statistical methods for students of engineering and the physical sciences at the undergraduate level. Theoretical developments and mathematical treatment of the principles involved are included as needed for understanding of the validity of the techniques presented. The major changes in this edition are a new chapter on statistical process control and reliability, several added nonparametric techniques, and 30 added problems.

Description : Sharpen your statistical skills practically overnight! To meed today's stringent qualilty standards--including ISO 9000 and QS9000--you need solid statistical know-how. Here's the one tool that makes complex statistical methods easier and more accessible than ever. Handbook of Statistical Methods for Engineers and Scientists, Second Edition. Harry M. Wadsworth walks you step-by-step through the full range of statistical techniques--matching how-to procedures to specific applications--making it a breeze to: master such important procedures as acceptance sampling and survey sampling; exploit advanced statistical techniques including multicollinearity and biased estimation in regression, nonlinear regression and time series analysis; take advantage of cutting-edge computer simulation methods and robust design techniques; and much more.
Description : In any industry or system it is necessary to evaluate risks and consequences of unexpected changes to the operation. In power engineering, variables are encountered throughout production, transmission and consumption processes. This book is written from years of experimenting with different mathematical techniques to model these uncertainties, use of which should open up new possibilities of rationalisation and efficiency. Although written by and primarily for high-voltage engineers, all engineers will find the techniques of interest and benefit.
Description : Written by a mineral engineer for mineral engineers, and packed with real world examples, this book de-mystifies the statistics that most of us learned at university and then forgot. It shows how simple statistical methods, most of them available in Excel, can be used to make good decisions in the face of experimental uncertainty. Written in accessible language, it explains how experimental uncertainty arises from the normal measurement errors and how statistics provides a powerful methodology to manage that uncertainty. It assumes only that the readers are numerate, can use Excel, and want to do a better professional job. It is aimed squarely at mineral engineers and allied professionals (such as chemists) on the mine site, in head office, in engineering and supply companies and in universities. Most of the examples are illustrated in Excel but Minitab is also used for advanced techniques. The book includes over 100 Excel and Minitab hints. Example spreadsheets can be downloaded from the JKMRC and JKTech websites.
Description : In today’s global and highly competitive environment, continuous improvement in the processes and products of any field of engineering is essential for survival. This book gathers together the full range of statistical techniques required by engineers from all fields. It will assist them to gain sensible statistical feedback on how their processes or products are functioning and to give them realistic predictions of how these could be improved. The handbook will be essential reading for all engineers and engineering-connected managers who are serious about keeping their methods and products at the cutting edge of quality and competitiveness.
Description : The first MATLAB-based numerical methods textbook for bioengineers that uniquely integrates modelling concepts with statistical analysis, while maintaining a focus on enabling the user to report the error or uncertainty in their result. Between traditional numerical method topics of linear modelling concepts, nonlinear root finding, and numerical integration, chapters on hypothesis testing, data regression and probability are interweaved. A unique feature of the book is the inclusion of examples from clinical trials and bioinformatics, which are not found in other numerical methods textbooks for engineers. With a wealth of biomedical engineering examples, case studies on topical biomedical research, and the inclusion of end of chapter problems, this is a perfect core text for a one-semester undergraduate course.
