SUMMARY

Devoted to the growing impact of statistical methodology and statistical computing in industry the aim of this book is to link the three components: Statistics - industry - computers. Different areas of industrial statistics are presented by a number of excellent contributions. The following topics are covered: Quality control, engineering and monitoring; reliability and failure time analysis, experimental design; repeated measurements - multiple inference; pharma - statistics; computing, imaging and perception. This book concentrates on the interface between statistical needs in industry and statistical methods developed by statisticians and engineers
