Applied Statistics and Probability for Engineers – Douglas C. Montgomery – 3rd Edition


This best-selling engineering statistics text provides a practical approach that is more oriented to engineering and the and physical sciences than many similar texts. Its packed with unique problem sets that reflect realistic situations will encounter in their working lives.

and Runger’s best-selling engineering statistics text provides a practical approach oriented to engineering as well as chemical and physical sciences. By providing unique problem sets that reflect realistic situations, learn how the material will be relevant in their careers and is suitable for a one- or two-term course in and statistics.

With a focus on how statistical tools are integrated into the engineering problem-solving process, all major aspects of engineering statistics are covered, including descriptive statistics, probability and probability distributions, statistical test and confidence intervals for one and two samples, regression models, designing and analyzing engineering experiments, and statistical process control.

Developed with sponsorship from the National Foundation, this text incorporates many insights from the authors’ teaching experience along with feedback from numerous adopters of previous editions.
