Applied Statistics and Probability for Engineers – Douglas C. Montgomery – 2nd Edition


This best-selling text provides a practicalapproach that is more oriented to and the andphysical sciences than many similar texts. It is packed withunique problem sets that reflect realistic situations engineerswill encounter in their working lives. This text shows howstatistics, the of data is just as important for engineersas the mechanical, electrical, and materials sciences.

By providing unique problem sets that reflect realistic situations, learn how the material will be relevant in their careers. With a focus on how statistical tools are integrated into the engineering problem-solving process, all major aspects of engineering statistics are covered.
