Written by a statistician with a wealth of experience in designing and implementing experimental trials, this is a clear and practical guide to conducting experiments. It is structured as a check-list, allowing the reader to follow easily the steps involved in the design, implementation and analysis of an effective experiment. The principles behind the planning processes are well introduced, and illustrated by examples drawn from real experiments.
* Describes real experiments and includes numerous examples
* Based on material used for successful industrial training courses
* Focuses on the principles of experimentation
* Mathematics is kept to a minimum, with emphasis on the qualitative aspects of experimentation
Primarily of interest to graduates from scientific and engineering disciplines who already have some knowledge of statistics, this coherent text will also be of use to consulting statisticians who advise experimenters or teach graduate students from scientific and engineering courses.
