Hello. I have seen a lot of statistical books but I have not yet found a book that covers from Basic Statistics to Hypothesis Testing to Correlation and Regression to Statistical Process Control (quality) to Design of Experiments.
Is there such a book? if there is, can you recommend something that is easy to comprehend? If not, can you suggest something? Thanks. ‘Hope to hear some replies…0July 8, 2002 at 12:49 pm #77027
Robert ButlerParticipant@rbutler Include @rbutler in your post and this person will
be notified via email.What you are asking for is roughly the first two years of a 4 year undergraduate course in statistics. There are books that will zip through the list you have posted but I doubt that they will be of much value to you. I can’t offer a single text but I would offer the following:
Basic statistics and hypothesis testing:
A Cartoon Guide to Statistics – by way of introduction
Statistical Theory and Methodology in Science and EngineeringBrownlee
Chapter 1 Mathematical Ideas, Chapter 2Statistical Ideas – has great graphical depiction of the concept of critical areas, Chapter 6 Control Charts, Chapters 810 and 14.
Applied Regression Analysis 2nd Edition – Draper and Smith Chapters 14, with particular emphasis on Chapter 3 The Examination of Residuals, Chapter 8 Multiple Regression, and Chapter 9 – Multiple Regression Applied to ANOVA
Statistics for Experimenters Box, Hunter, Hunter – the entire book.
for backup have a copy of
Quality Control – Duncan
Regression Analysis by Example – Chatterjee and Price
Statistical Methods – Snedecor and Cochran0July 9, 2002 at 2:25 am #77051Douglas Montgomery’s “Introduction to Statistical Quality Control” is an excellent book that matches your description.
Part I – Intro to Quality Improvement and Basic StatisticsPart II – SPC & Process CapabilityPart III – Advanced Quality Control MethodsPart IV – Process Design & Improvement with DOEPart V – Acceptance Sampling
Check out the contents in Amazon. Search the Books on “Douglas Montgomery” and you’ll find it.0July 9, 2002 at 2:44 am #77052Thank you very much for the immediate reply. Though I already have statistical methods by cochran and snedecor, and I think this one covers basic statistics to doe. I think I have to take a look at your quality book by duran to complete the set. thanks once again.
0July 9, 2002 at 2:49 am #77053Thank you very much for the immediate reply. I still have to see Montgomere’s book since it will be arriving next month to my location. thanks once again. i was just trying to see if there was such a book on existance.

Houston MayerParticipant@HoustonMayer Include @HoustonMayer in your post and this person will
be notified via email.I like Montgomery’s introductory book and I also appreciate Thomas Pyzdek’s Quality Engineering Handbook and his new Six Sigma Handbook.
Pyzdek has some other books on statistics that are listed on the web that you might consider. If you discover the one book that fits all of your needs please share your find.
Pyzdek has articles in quality magazines (Quality Digest – I think) that you can read to see if his style is compatable with your preferences.0July 9, 2002 at 3:24 pm #77076

If you find it all in one book you will probably have to sacrifice some insight that you get from reading various authors.
You get great DOE from Box, Hunter and Hunter. If you read Robert Launsby’s book “Straight Talk on Designing Experiments” he doesn’t give the depth of detail in BH&H (he does explain how they work) but he does a great job of taking the spectrum of types of DOE’s and fitting them together and presenting the pro’s and con’s and tradeoffs
If you want control charts you need to read Wheeler. There are just a huge amount of benifits from the diversity of reading different authors. The closest to getting that in a single book is Jurans “Handbook.”
There is a long list of good authors. Several of the posts have provided some good references. Where you get your value isn’t from how you crunch the numbers. It comes from the things they explain about the numbers and what they mean.
Good luck0July 10, 2002 at 1:44 pm #77104Hi,

We have a book called “Basic Statistics, Tools for continuous improvement” by Mark J. Kiemele, Stephen R. Schmidt and Ronald J. Berdine. It covers the things you mentioned (and more) and is’t writen in a very open way. There’s lots of examples, equasions and tables/pictures to make is easy to read.
ISBN number is 1880156067
Hope this helps!
René0July 11, 2002 at 8:20 am #77133Thank you very much everyone for all your insights. Definitely I would be looking at each one at amazon for their overview and table of contents. So far, I already have Statistical Methods by Cochran, a local book called Applied Statistics for Business, and Introduction to SPC, which is still coming. Thanks once again…
0July 11, 2002 at 5:56 pm #77168Try this link out. It may not have everything you need, but it is pretty good.

There is a good book I am referencing as a Black Belt called “The Six Sigma Handbook” written by Thomas Pyzdek. It is aimed at being a guide for GB’s, BB’s and Management.
It covers topics such as leadership, training, Six Sigma principles, organisation performance, metrics, management of projects, measurements and data, basic methods, intermediate methods, advanced methods.
As to your specific list, the book covers each of these items.
The ISBN number is 0071372334 and was published by McGrawHill.
Good Luck.0July 12, 2002 at 1:56 pm #77205
