Through years of teaching experience, John S. Lawson and John Erjavec have learned that it doesn't take much theoretical background before engineers can learn practical methods of data collections, analysis, and interpretation that will be useful in real life and on the job. With this premise in mind, the authors wrote ENGINEERING AND INDUSTRIAL STATISTICS, which includes the basic topics of engineering statistics but puts less emphasis on the theoretical concepts and elementary topics usually found in an introductory statistics book. Instead, the authors put more emphasis on techniques that will be useful for engineers. With fewer details of traditional probability and inference and more emphasis on the topics useful to engineers, the book is flexible for instructors and interesting for students.... a Mercedes Benz is a higher quality automobile than a Geo Metro, or that a Bosch dishwasher is higher quality than a Hotpoint. ... Determining the particular market niche and price for a product are problems of marketing, not engineering.
