Montgomery, Runger, and Hubele provide modern coverage of engineering statistics, focusing on how statistical tools are integrated into the engineering problemsolving process. All major aspects of engineering statistics are covered, including descriptive statistics, probability and probability distributions, statistical test and confidence intervals for one and two samples, building regression models, designing and analyzing engineering experiments, and statistical process control. Developed with sponsorship from the National Science Foundation, this revision incorporates many insights from the authors’ teaching experience along with feedback from numerous adopters of previous editions.

 Accessible and manageable  presents important topics that can be covered in one semester
 Emphasis on professional practice  students get the coverage most useful to engineers with strong emphasis on data analysis and statistical inference with less focus on distributions and probability
 A strong focus on Pvalue approach to hypothesis testing familiarizes students with practical approaches to engineering problems
 Provides real engineering situations and applications as well as real data sets in examples and homework that help motivate students by applying statistics to the engineering profession
 A stepbystep problem solving approach integrated into examples
 Supports an active learning environment  reading questions and homework problems in WileyPlus help motivate and build student confidence with instant feedback. The supplemental problems and team exercises in the text can be used for inclass team activities, including designing experiments, generating data, and performing analyses.
 End of section exercises are structured to reinforce the concepts and technigues introduced in each section
 End of chapter supplemental exercises integrate concepts and techniques from multiple sections and reinforce student mastery of these concepts
 Team exercises challenge students to apply chapter methods and concepts to problems requiring data collection
 Software output in MINITAB throughout the text demonstrates the capability of modern statistical software
