To practice engineering effectively, engineers must need to have a working knowledge of statistical concepts and methods. What they do not need is a background heavy on statistical theory and number crunching. Statistical Methods for Industrial Process Control provides the practical statistics foundation engineers can immediately apply to the work they do every day, regardless of their industry or specialty. The author illustrates statistical concepts and methods with authentic semiconductor manufacturing process examples-integrated circuit fabrication is an exceedingly rich medium for communicating statistical concepts. However, once learned, these concepts and methods can easily be extended and applied to a variety of other industries. The text emphasizes the application of statistical tools, rather than statistical theory. Modern advances in statistical software have made tedious computations and formula memorization unnecessary. Therefore, the author demonstrates software use throughout the book and supplies MINITAB examples and SAS programs. Review problems at the end of each chapter challenge and deepen readers' understanding of the material.Statistical Methods for Industrial Process Control addresses topics that support the work engineers do, rather than educate them as statisticians, and these topics also reflect modern usage. It effectively introduces novice engineers to a fascinating industry and enables experienced engineers to build upon their existing knowledge and learn new skills.
