Adjusted R 2
A variation of the R 2 statistic that compensates for the number of parameters in a regression model. Essentially, the adjustment is a penalty for increasing the number of parameters in the model. Alias. In a fractional factorial experiment when certain factor effects cannot be estimated uniquely, they are said to be aliased.

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.

Bivariate distribution
The joint probability distribution of two random variables.

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

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

Control chart
A graphical display used to monitor a process. It usually consists of a horizontal center line corresponding to the incontrol value of the parameter that is being monitored and lower and upper control limits. The control limits are determined by statistical criteria and are not arbitrary, nor are they related to speciication limits. If sample points fall within the control limits, the process is said to be incontrol, or free from assignable causes. Points beyond the control limits indicate an outofcontrol process; that is, assignable causes are likely present. This signals the need to ind and remove the assignable causes.

Counting techniques
Formulas used to determine the number of elements in sample spaces and events.

Decision interval
A parameter in a tabular CUSUM algorithm that is determined from a tradeoff between false alarms and the detection of assignable causes.

Defectsperunit control chart
See U chart

Deming
W. Edwards Deming (1900–1993) was a leader in the use of statistical quality control.

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

Discrete uniform random variable
A discrete random variable with a inite range and constant probability mass function.

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

Event
A subset of a sample space.

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

F distribution.
The distribution of the random variable deined as the ratio of two independent chisquare random variables, each divided by its number of degrees of freedom.

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

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

Generating function
A function that is used to determine properties of the probability distribution of a random variable. See Momentgenerating 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.
