Book Description

Now with even more examples with real data, real-world applications, and computer exercise, the Fourth Edition of this accessible text prepares you for situations you're likely to encounter as a professionakl engineer.

Together with new co-authors David Goldsman and Connie Borror, William Hines and Douglas Montgomery have refined their highly effective pedagogical framework to make their text even more user friendly. This Fourth Edition also features a new chapter on statistical methods for computer situation, as well exceptionally clear statistical coverage, expanded discussions of quiality control, experimental design, and different types of interval estimation, and coverage of such special topics as nonparametric statistics, p-values in hypothetical testing, and residual analysis.

Highlights of the Fourth Edition:

* New examples and applications provide a real-world perspective on how engineers use probability and statistics in professional practice.
* Over 600 exercises, including many new computation problems, provide opportunities for hands-on learning.
* An entirely new chapter on statistical methods for computer simulation methods covers Monte Carlo experimentation, random number and variate generation, and simulation output data analysis.
* New chapter organization starts with probability theory and progresses through random variables, discrete and continuous distributions, and normal distribution, before introducing statistics and data description techniques.
* Each chapter starts with an introduction that describes the importance of the topic and features interesting historical information related to the topic.
* End-of-chapter summaries reinforce the main topics and goals of the chapter.

5Excellent book for review
By Paul Sober
This book was very helpful for me to review the subject. It is clear and well written with plenty of problems. I would personally prefer more example problems and more work problems with solutions, but it is getting harder and harder to find that these days.

4very helpful
By Amazon Customer
I'm an engineer, I've been out of school for 3 years and I bought this book for my first grad class. The book itself is like most textbooks... reading it will put you to sleep. However this book was great for learning the material. My professor is extremely hard to understand and not very helpful in lecture. Basically I taught myself the material from this book and passed with an A.

5Outstanding Reference Source for Industrial and Quality Mgrs
By JA Salahuddin
A must have for the industrial engineer and quality professional. Montgomery and Hines present an excellent piece that is well organized, comprehensive and stocked full of real world examples. A must have for your reference books and library.
