Mistakes In Quality Statistics And How To Fix Them
Author: Donald W. Benbow
Throughout Don Benbow’s extensive career, teaching mathematics and statistical courses to college students and corporate employees, one common question always popped up: how do you fix statistical errors in quality? Most textbooks and courses tend to emphasize how to perform statistical analysis and give little attention to errors that can occur in the process. This book intends to teach readers how to avoid common pitfalls by providing examples and scenarios based on similar real-world events. The book also provides “caveats” (or quick tips) to help readers navigate their way through statistical methodology.
