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

• 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.

• Cause-and-effect diagram

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

• Chi-square test

Any test of signiicance based on the chi-square distribution. The most common chi-square 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 model-itting process and not on replication.

• 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.

• Frequency distribution

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