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

aerror (or arisk)
In hypothesis testing, an error incurred by failing to reject a null hypothesis when it is actually false (also called a type II error).

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

Alternative hypothesis
In statistical hypothesis testing, this is a hypothesis other than the one that is being tested. The alternative hypothesis contains feasible conditions, whereas the null hypothesis speciies conditions that are under test

Assignable cause
The portion of the variability in a set of observations that can be traced to speciic causes, such as operators, materials, or equipment. Also called a special cause.

Biased estimator
Unbiased estimator.

Conditional probability
The probability of an event given that the random experiment produces an outcome in another event.

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

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

Control limits
See Control chart.

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 .

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

Empirical model
A model to relate a response to one or more regressors or factors that is developed from data obtained from the system.

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

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

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.

Fractional factorial experiment
A type of factorial experiment in which not all possible treatment combinations are run. This is usually done to reduce the size of an experiment with several factors.

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

Geometric random variable
A discrete random variable that is the number of Bernoulli trials until a success occurs.

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 .
