New To This Edition
 New introductions in each chapter demonstrate the relevance of statistics to engineering
 Design of experiments content revised and inclusion of additional material helps students to better interpret computer software output related to ANOVA
 New examples demonstrate calculating probability in Excel (Chapter 3)
 Practical interpretations in example problems provide improved linking of statistical conclusions to the actual engineering decision outcome
 Approximately 80 new exercises related to biology and health care (in most chapters)
The Wiley Advantage
 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
