There are two texts for this course:
1. Lecture Notes for Probability and Statistics (textbook draft) by
A Barnett.
2. Statistical Methods for Engineers by G. Vining (SME)
There also will be materials on the statistical analysis package, JMP.





Boxplots. Comparing two independent samples. Examples of ttests and confidence intervals for comparisons. Checking assumptions using normal probability plots.  SME 1 (Background material for my introductory lecture). SME 2.3, 117120, 3.7, 4.5.  3.54 (omit part d), 4.30, 4.32. (You should try one or all of these in JMP in order to get familiar with this program and let us know if there are any problems using the system.) 

Pairing and blocking as good experimental design; comparing two paired samples. Why does blocking work? Variances and the chisquared distribution; confidence intervals for the variance; ratio of variances; pvalues./ Tutorial  SME 131132, 4.64.10.  4.36, 4.37, 4.43. Find the pvalues in problems 4.36 and 4.37. 

Regression with more than one explanatory variable. R^{2}, Ftest, residual analysis, checking assumptions, diagnostics.  SME 6.36.5. Some of this material has been covered in the first half of the course. Linear algebra is not required for this course, but matrix notation is very useful for regression and will help with experimental design. If you have never heard of eigenvalues and eigenvectors, don't worry about them.  6.13, 6.21, 6.27 (all on the same data set). The Hydrox Case 

Tutorial/ Overview of designed experiments.2^{2} factorial designs. Introduce the helicopter design case.  SME 7.17.2.  7.3, 7.4 

Overview of designed experiments . 2^2 factorial designs. Interactions.
Analysis of means.

SME 7.3  The Hydrox Case is due

Tutorial  Preparation for exam  

2^k factorial designs. Interactions. 45 minute examination on the material in the first three lectures (to the end of regression).  SME 7.1 7.2  7.3,7.4 

Fractional factorial designs. Confounding and aliasing. Screening designs.  SME 7.3, 7.4  7.8, 7.12, 7.16 

Central Composite designs. Sequential experimantion.  SME 7.5  7.29 and 7.31 

Robust design and the ideas of Taguchi.  SME 7.7 skip bottom of 432 to middle of 434 and skim after 441  Process Imporvement at Loyal Case (discussion on 13th) 

Comparing more than two independent samples (oneway ANOVA).Determining measurement repeatability and reproducibility as an example of twoway ANOVA using random effects.  Notes  Measurement phase of Hydrox(A) and do Hydrox (B) to see how it turned out
