Provides comprehensive coverage of experiment planning, execution, and analysis
This handy, single-source resource guides readers in planning and conducting credible experiments for engineering, science, industrial processes, agriculture, and business. It takes them all the way through designing successful experiments, from initial conception, through execution of the experiment, to the final report, and prepares the reader to anticipate the choices faced throughout each one.
Filled with real-world examples from engineering science and industry, Planning and Executing Credible Experiments: A Guidebook for Engineering, Science, Industrial Processes, Agriculture, and Business offers chapters that challenge experimenters at each stage of planning and execution. Tested over decades at Stanford University and internationally, it is accompanied by a website hosting two powerful, free, open-source software tools that reinforce experiment design and analysis.
