  • R. Khattree, Oakland University, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Rochester, MI, USA
  • C.R. Rao, The Pennyslvania State University, Department of Statistics, PA, USA

This volume presents a state of the art exposition of topics in the industrial statistics. It serves as an invaluable reference for the researchers in industrial statistics/industrial engineering and an up to date source of information for practicing statisticians/industrial engineers. A variety of topics in the areas of industrial process monitoring, industrial experimentation, industrial modelling and data analysis are covered and are authored by leading researchers or practitioners in the particular specialized topic. Targeting the audiences of researchers in academia as well as practitioners and consultants in industry, the book provides comprehensive accounts of the relevant topics. In addition, whenever applicable ample data analytic illustrations are provided with the help of real world data.
