Arithmetic mean
The arithmetic mean of a set of numbers x1 , x2 ,…, xn is their sum divided by the number of observations, or ( / )1 1 n xi t n ? = . The arithmetic mean is usually denoted by x , and is often called the average

Attribute control chart
Any control chart for a discrete random variable. See Variables control chart.

Bayes’ estimator
An estimator for a parameter obtained from a Bayesian method that uses a prior distribution for the parameter along with the conditional distribution of the data given the parameter to obtain the posterior distribution of the parameter. The estimator is obtained from the posterior distribution.

Binomial random variable
A discrete random variable that equals the number of successes in a ixed number of Bernoulli trials.

Central tendency
The tendency of data to cluster around some value. Central tendency is usually expressed by a measure of location such as the mean, median, or mode.

Chisquare test
Any test of signiicance based on the chisquare distribution. The most common chisquare tests are (1) testing hypotheses about the variance or standard deviation of a normal distribution and (2) testing goodness of it of a theoretical distribution to sample data

Conditional mean
The mean of the conditional probability distribution of a random variable.

Conidence level
Another term for the conidence coeficient.

Continuous random variable.
A random variable with an interval (either inite or ininite) of real numbers for its range.

Correlation coeficient
A dimensionless measure of the linear association between two variables, usually lying in the interval from ?1 to +1, with zero indicating the absence of correlation (but not necessarily the independence of the two variables).

Covariance
A measure of association between two random variables obtained as the expected value of the product of the two random variables around their means; that is, Cov(X Y, ) [( )( )] =? ? E X Y ? ? X Y .

Cumulative distribution function
For a random variable X, the function of X deined as PX x ( ) ? that is used to specify the probability distribution.

Cumulative sum control chart (CUSUM)
A control chart in which the point plotted at time t is the sum of the measured deviations from target for all statistics up to time t

Defectsperunit control chart
See U chart

Density function
Another name for a probability density function

Experiment
A series of tests in which changes are made to the system under study

False alarm
A signal from a control chart when no assignable causes are present

Frequency distribution
An arrangement of the frequencies of observations in a sample or population according to the values that the observations take on

Geometric mean.
The geometric mean of a set of n positive data values is the nth root of the product of the data values; that is, g x i n i n = ( ) = / w 1 1 .

Geometric random variable
A discrete random variable that is the number of Bernoulli trials until a success occurs.
