Hoboken, NJ: John Wiley & Sons (ISBN 0-471-48735-X/hbk). xv, 643 p. (2005).

Publisher’s description: The author arms the readers with the most effective approach for learning how to design, conduct, and analyze experiments that optimize performance in products and processes. He shows how to use statistically designed experiments to obtain information for characterization and optimization of systems, improve manufacturing processes, and design and develop new processes and products. The reader will also learn how to evaluate material alternatives in product design, improve the field performance, reliability, and manufacturing aspects of products, and conduct experiments effectively and efficiently.

This 6 th edition, see also the review of the 4 edition from 1997, Zbl 0910.62067, places a strong focus on the use of computers, providing output from two software products: Minitab and DesignExpert; and presents new examples as well as expanded coverage on adding runs to a fractional factorial to de-alias effects. It includes detailed discussions on how computers are currently used in the analysis and design of experiments, offers new material on a number of important topics, including follow-up experimentation and split-plot designs, and focuses even more sharply on factorial and fractional factorial designs.
