Process Modeling (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

Process Modeling (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

Created by Alan Heckert and James Filliben, this chapter of the National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) Engineering Statistics handbook presents information on the statistical modeling of an engineering process. It contains an introduction, discussion of the assumptions, information about data collection and analysis, a discussion of what can be concluded from different process models, and case studies. This final section is quite interesting. It offers four different studies, they consist of: load cell output, the Alaskan Pipeline, ultrasonic reference block and the thermal expansion of copper. Once students go through the theories presented, the case studies allow them to apply this knowledge.
