Process Improvement (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

Process Improvement (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

Created by Alan Heckert and James Filliben, this chapter of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Engineering Statistics handbook provides information on the process improvement of experimental design. It contains an introduction, a discussion of assumptions, a discussion of choice of experimental design, a discussion of the analysis of data, an advanced studies section and case studies. The case studies focus on very detailed examinations of these theories. More specifically they are: the eddy current probe sensitivity study and Sonoluminescent light intensity study. This is a nice lesson plan as it introduces the theories and then allows students to directly apply them to case studies.
