In Basic Engineering Data Collection and Analysis, Stephen B. Vardeman and J. Marcus Jobe stress the use of statistical concepts and methods in engineering practice. Step by step, students get real engineering data, examples, and case studies that illustrate the use and importance of the book's statistical methods in realistic, thoroughly detailed situations. Many of the text's exercises are derived from self-directed engineering student group projects. These features encourage students to work through the text material by carrying out their own data collection and analysis projects, from problem formulation through preparation of professional technical reports—just as if they were on the job.

Additional materials (beyond the text itself) are available in the "Chapters" dropdown menu below, including:

  • individual book chapters
  • chapter formula sheets
  • book datasets in digital form
  • a complete solutions manual for book exercises
  • a PDF supplement providing R language code and output for book examples
  • files holding the R language code illustrated in the document
