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

A full factorial experiment with k factors and all factors tested at only two levels (settings) each.

• 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

• Average run length, or ARL

The average number of samples taken in a process monitoring or inspection scheme until the scheme signals that the process is operating at a level different from the level in which it began.

• Backward elimination

A method of variable selection in regression that begins with all of the candidate regressor variables in the model and eliminates the insigniicant regressors one at a time until only signiicant regressors remain

• Block

In experimental design, a group of experimental units or material that is relatively homogeneous. The purpose of dividing experimental units into blocks is to produce an experimental design wherein variability within blocks is smaller than variability between blocks. This allows the factors of interest to be compared in an environment that has less variability than in an unblocked experiment.

• Cause-and-effect diagram

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

• Conditional probability density function

The probability density function of the conditional probability distribution of a continuous random variable.

• Consistent estimator

An estimator that converges in probability to the true value of the estimated parameter as the sample size increases.

• Continuous uniform random variable

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

• 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.

• Critical region

In hypothesis testing, this is the portion of the sample space of a test statistic that will lead to rejection of the null hypothesis.

• Crossed factors

Another name for factors that are arranged in a factorial experiment.

• Cumulative normal distribution function

The cumulative distribution of the standard normal distribution, often denoted as ?( ) x and tabulated in Appendix Table II.

• Defects-per-unit control chart

See U chart

• Designed experiment

An experiment in which the tests are planned in advance and the plans usually incorporate statistical models. See Experiment

• Estimate (or point estimate)

The numerical value of a point estimator.

• Frequency distribution

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

• Gamma random variable

A random variable that generalizes an Erlang random variable to noninteger values of the parameter r

• 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.
