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
A qualitative characteristic of an item or unit, usually arising in quality control. For example, classifying production units as defective or nondefective results in attributes data.

Average
See Arithmetic mean.

Categorical data
Data consisting of counts or observations that can be classiied into categories. The categories may be descriptive.

Causeandeffect diagram
A chart used to organize the various potential causes of a problem. Also called a ishbone diagram.

Coeficient of determination
See R 2 .

Continuity correction.
A correction factor used to improve the approximation to binomial probabilities from a normal distribution.

Contrast
A linear function of treatment means with coeficients that total zero. A contrast is a summary of treatment means that is of interest in an experiment.

Decision interval
A parameter in a tabular CUSUM algorithm that is determined from a tradeoff between false alarms and the detection of assignable causes.

Defectsperunit control chart
See U chart

Dependent variable
The response variable in regression or a designed experiment.

Discrete uniform random variable
A discrete random variable with a inite range and constant probability mass function.

Estimate (or point estimate)
The numerical value of a point estimator.

Exponential random variable
A series of tests in which changes are made to the system under study

Factorial experiment
A type of experimental design in which every level of one factor is tested in combination with every level of another factor. In general, in a factorial experiment, all possible combinations of factor levels are tested.

Fisher’s least signiicant difference (LSD) method
A series of pairwise hypothesis tests of treatment means in an experiment to determine which means differ.

Fixed factor (or fixed effect).
In analysis of variance, a factor or effect is considered ixed if all the levels of interest for that factor are included in the experiment. Conclusions are then valid about this set of levels only, although when the factor is quantitative, it is customary to it a model to the data for interpolating between these levels.

Forward selection
A method of variable selection in regression, where variables are inserted one at a time into the model until no other variables that contribute signiicantly to the model can be found.

Gaussian distribution
Another name for the normal distribution, based on the strong connection of Karl F. Gauss to the normal distribution; often used in physics and electrical engineering applications

Generating function
A function that is used to determine properties of the probability distribution of a random variable. See Momentgenerating function
