STATISTICAL METHODS FOR ENGINEERS offers a balanced, streamlined one-semester introduction to Engineering Statistics that emphasizes the statistical tools most needed by practicing engineers. Using real engineering problems with real data based on actual journals and consulting experience in the field, users see how statistics fits within the methods of engineering problem solving. The book teaches users how to think like an engineer at analyzing real data and planning a project the same way they will in their careers.
