  • Statistical Monitoring of Complex Multivatiate Processes: With Applications in Industrial Process Control

    The development and application of multivariate statistical techniques in process monitoring has gained substantial interest over the past two decades in academia and industry alike.  Initially developed for monitoring and fault diagnosis in complex systems, such techniques have been refined and applied in various engineering areas, for example mechanical and manufacturing, chemical, electrical and electronic, and power engineering.  The recipe for the tremendous interest in multivariate statistical techniques lies in its simplicity and adaptability for developing monitoring applications.  In contrast, competitive model, signal or knowledge based techniques showed their potential only whenever cost-benefit economics have justified the required effort in developing applications. Statistical Monitoring of Complex Multivariate Processes presents recent advances in statistics based process monitoring, explaining how these processes can now be used in areas such as mechanical and manufacturing engineering for example, in addition to the traditional chemical industry. This book: Contains a detailed theoretical background of the component technology. Brings together a large body of work to address the field’s drawbacks, and develops methods for their improvement.

  • Statistical Methods for Industrial Process Control (Solid State Science and Engineering Series)

    To practice engineering effectively, engineers must need to have a working knowledge of statistical concepts and methods. What they do not need is a background heavy on statistical theory and number crunching.Statistical Methods for Industrial Process Control provides the practical statistics foundation engineers can immediately apply to the work they do every day, regardless of their industry or specialty. The author illustrates statistical concepts and methods with authentic semiconductor manufacturing process examples-integrated circuit fabrication is an exceedingly rich medium for communicating statistical concepts. However, once learned, these concepts and methods can easily be extended and applied to a variety of other industries.The text emphasizes the application of statistical tools, rather than statistical theory. Modern advances in statistical software have made tedious computations and formula memorization unnecessary. Therefore, the author demonstrates software use throughout the book and supplies MINITAB examples and SAS programs. Review problems at the end of each chapter challenge and deepen readers' understanding of the material. Statistical Methods for Industrial Process Control addresses topics that support the work engineers do, rather than educate them as sta...
