Key Statistics Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• 2 k p - factorial experiment

A fractional factorial experiment with k factors tested in a 2 ? p fraction with all factors tested at only two levels (settings) each

• Analytic study

A study in which a sample from a population is used to make inference to a future population. Stability needs to be assumed. See Enumerative study

• Bayesâ€™ 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.

• Bimodal distribution.

A distribution with two modes

• Center line

A horizontal line on a control chart at the value that estimates the mean of the statistic plotted on the chart. See Control chart.

• Central limit theorem

The simplest form of the central limit theorem states that the sum of n independently distributed random variables will tend to be normally distributed as n becomes large. It is a necessary and suficient condition that none of the variances of the individual random variables are large in comparison to their sum. There are more general forms of the central theorem that allow ininite variances and correlated random variables, and there is a multivariate version of the theorem.

• Conidence coeficient

The probability 1?a associated with a conidence interval expressing the probability that the stated interval will contain the true parameter value.

• Contingency table.

A tabular arrangement expressing the assignment of members of a data set according to two or more categories or classiication criteria

• Continuous random variable.

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

• Continuous uniform random variable

A continuous random variable with range of a inite interval and a constant probability density function.

• Contour plot

A two-dimensional graphic used for a bivariate probability density function that displays curves for which the probability density function is constant.

• 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).

• 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

• Discrete distribution

A probability distribution for a discrete random variable

• Dispersion

The amount of variability exhibited by data

• Erlang random variable

A continuous random variable that is the sum of a ixed number of independent, exponential random variables.

• Estimate (or point estimate)

The numerical value of a point estimator.

• False alarm

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

• Fraction defective control chart

See P chart

• Frequency distribution

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