Case Studies in Process Improvement (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

Case Studies in Process Improvement (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

Created by James Filliben and Alan Heckert, this part of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Engineering Statistics handbook contains case studies for the process improvement chapter, which deals with design of experiments. More specifically, these case studies consist of: the Eddy current probe sensitivity study and Sonoluminescent light intensity study. Besides an introduction to experimental design, the author states a secondary goal of "giv[ing] the reader an opportunity to run the analyzes in real-time using the Dataplot software package." This is a great lesson for applying statistical theory to actual practice.
