Key Statistics Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• 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

• Bernoulli trials

Sequences of independent trials with only two outcomes, generally called “success” and “failure,” in which the probability of success remains constant.

• Bimodal distribution.

A distribution with two modes

• 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).

• 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.

• Combination.

A subset selected without replacement from a set used to determine the number of outcomes in events and sample spaces.

• Continuous random variable.

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

• 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 .

• Density function

Another name for a probability density function

• Designed experiment

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

• Enumerative study

A study in which a sample from a population is used to make inference to the population. See Analytic study

• Error of estimation

The difference between an estimated value and the true value.

• Estimate (or point estimate)

The numerical value of a point estimator.

• Estimator (or point estimator)

A procedure for producing an estimate of a parameter of interest. An estimator is usually a function of only sample data values, and when these data values are available, it results in an estimate of the parameter of interest.

• Experiment

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

• Exponential random variable

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

• Fraction defective

In statistical quality control, that portion of a number of units or the output of a process that is defective.

• Hat matrix.

In multiple regression, the matrix H XXX X = ( ) ? ? -1 . This a projection matrix that maps the vector of observed response values into a vector of itted values by yˆ = = X X X X y Hy ( ) ? ? ?1 .
