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

Biased estimator
Unbiased estimator.

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

Categorical data
Data consisting of counts or observations that can be classiied into categories. The categories may be descriptive.

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

Chisquare test
Any test of signiicance based on the chisquare distribution. The most common chisquare tests are (1) testing hypotheses about the variance or standard deviation of a normal distribution and (2) testing goodness of it of a theoretical distribution to sample data

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

Comparative experiment
An experiment in which the treatments (experimental conditions) that are to be studied are included in the experiment. The data from the experiment are used to evaluate the treatments.

Completely randomized design (or experiment)
A type of experimental design in which the treatments or design factors are assigned to the experimental units in a random manner. In designed experiments, a completely randomized design results from running all of the treatment combinations in random order.

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

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

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

Defect
Used in statistical quality control, a defect is a particular type of nonconformance to speciications or requirements. Sometimes defects are classiied into types, such as appearance defects and functional defects.

Deining relation
A subset of effects in a fractional factorial design that deine the aliases in the design.

Density function
Another name for a probability density function

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

Error sum of squares
In analysis of variance, this is the portion of total variability that is due to the random component in the data. It is usually based on replication of observations at certain treatment combinations in the experiment. It is sometimes called the residual sum of squares, although this is really a better term to use only when the sum of squares is based on the remnants of a modelitting process and not on replication.

Fisher’s least signiicant difference (LSD) method
A series of pairwise hypothesis tests of treatment means in an experiment to determine which means differ.

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