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

• Acceptance region

In hypothesis testing, a region in the sample space of the test statistic such that if the test statistic falls within it, the null hypothesis cannot be rejected. This terminology is used because rejection of H0 is always a strong conclusion and acceptance of H0 is generally a weak conclusion

• Alias

In a fractional factorial experiment when certain factor effects cannot be estimated uniquely, they are said to be aliased.

• Bias

An effect that systematically distorts a statistical result or estimate, preventing it from representing the true quantity of interest.

• Binomial random variable

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

• 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.

• Box plot (or box and whisker plot)

A graphical display of data in which the box contains the middle 50% of the data (the interquartile range) with the median dividing it, and the whiskers extend to the smallest and largest values (or some deined lower and upper limits).

• 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.

• Conditional probability distribution

The distribution of a random variable given that the random experiment produces an outcome in an event. The given event might specify values for one or more other random variables

• Conditional probability mass function

The probability mass function of the conditional probability distribution of a discrete random variable.

• Conditional variance.

The variance of the conditional probability distribution of a random variable.

• Continuous uniform random variable

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

• Defect concentration diagram

A quality tool that graphically shows the location of defects on a part or in a process.

• Deming’s 14 points.

A management philosophy promoted by W. Edwards Deming that emphasizes the importance of change and quality

• Error mean square

The error sum of squares divided by its number of degrees of freedom.

• Extra sum of squares method

A method used in regression analysis to conduct a hypothesis test for the additional contribution of one or more variables to a model.

• Fisher’s least signiicant difference (LSD) method

A series of pair-wise hypothesis tests of treatment means in an experiment to determine which means differ.

• Gamma random variable

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

• Generating function

A function that is used to determine properties of the probability distribution of a random variable. See Moment-generating function

• Goodness of fit

In general, the agreement of a set of observed values and a set of theoretical values that depend on some hypothesis. The term is often used in itting a theoretical distribution to a set of observations.
