State-of-the-Art Coverage of the Most Widely Used Acceptance Sampling Techniques Cohesively Incorporates Theory and Practice Reflecting the recent resurgence of interest in this field, Acceptance Sampling in Quality Control, Second Edition presents the state of the art in the methodology of sampling and explores its advantages and limitations. The book also looks at how acceptance control can support applications of statistical process control and help in the evaluation of products. New to the Second Edition Coverage of ISO 2859 and 3951 standards and the ASTM version (E2234) of MIL-STD-105E A new section on credit-based sampling plans Greater emphasis on sampling schemes with switching rules More extensive discussion of accept zero plans, including tightened-normal-tightened (TNT), credit-based, the Nelson monograph for c=0, and MIL-STD-1916 Providing valuable guidelines for choosing appropriate procedures, this comprehensive second edition encompasses the most widely used acceptance sampling techniques. It lucidly provides a broad theoretical understanding of the field while offering all the information needed for the practical application of acceptance sampling plans in industry.

Virtually any random process developing chronologically can be viewed as a time series. In economics, closing prices of stocks, the cost of money, the jobless rate, and retail sales are just a few examples of many. Developed from course notes and extensively classroom-tested, Applied Time Series Analysis includes examples across a variety of fields, develops theory, and provides software to address time series problems in a broad spectrum of fields. The authors organize the information in such a format that graduate students in applied science, statistics, and economics can satisfactorily navigate their way through the book while maintaining mathematical rigor. One of the unique features of Applied Time Series Analysis is the associated software, GW-WINKS, designed to help students easily generate realizations from models and explore the associated model and data characteristics. The text explores many important new methodologies that have developed in time series, such as ARCH and GARCH processes, time varying frequencies (TVF), wavelets, and more. Other programs (some written in R and some requiring S-plus) are available on an associated website for performing computations related to the material in the final four chapters.

With Bayesian statistics rapidly becoming accepted as a way to solve applied statisticalproblems, the need for a comprehensive, up-to-date source on the latest advances in thisfield has arisen.Presenting the basic theory of a large variety of linear models from a Bayesian viewpoint,Bayesian Analysis of Linear Models fills this need. Plus, this definitive volume containssomething traditional-a review of Bayesian techniques and methods of estimation, hypothesis,testing, and forecasting as applied to the standard populations ... somethinginnovative-a new approach to mixed models and models not generally studied by statisticianssuch as linear dynamic systems and changing parameter models ... and somethingpractical-clear graphs, eary-to-understand examples, end-of-chapter problems, numerousreferences, and a distribution appendix.Comprehensible, unique, and in-depth, Bayesian Analysis of Linear Models is the definitivemonograph for statisticians, econometricians, and engineers. In addition, this text isideal for students in graduate-level courses such as linear models, econometrics, andBayesian inference.

Mathematical Methods of Reliability Theory discusses fundamental concepts of probability theory, mathematical statistics, and an exposition of the relationships among the fundamental quantitative characteristics encountered in the theory. The book deals with the set-theoretic approach to reliability theory and the central concepts of set theory to the phenomena. It also presents methods of finding estimates for reliability parameters based on observations and methods of testing reliability hypotheses. Based on mathematical statistics, the book also explains formulation of some selected results. It presents a method that increases the reliability of manufactured articles—redundancy. An important part of product quality control is the standards of acceptance-sampling plans which require simplicity, wide content for flexibility, comprehensive characteristics, and variability. The book also tackles economical and rational methods of sampling inspections, highlighting the need for a correct evaluation of environmental conditions—the factors which predetermine the choice of the inspection method. The book then explains how to estimate the efficiency of the operation of the sampling plan after its selection. The book can be helpful for engineers, mathematicians, economists, or industrial managers, as well as for other professionals who work in the technological, political, research, structural, and physico-chemical areas.
