    Designed Experiments for Science and Engineering is a versatile and overarching toolkit that explores various methods of designing experiments for over 20 disciplines in science and engineering.

    Designed experiments provide a structured approach to hypothesis testing, data analysis, and decision-making. They allow researchers and engineers to efficiently explore multiple factors, interactions, and their impact on outcomes, ultimately leading to better-designed processes, products, and systems across a wide range of scientific and engineering disciplines. Each discipline covered in this book includes the key characteristics of the steps in choosing and executing the Experimental Designs (One Factor, Fractional Factorial, Mixture Experimentation, Factor Central Composite, 3-Factor+ Central Composite, etc.) and will review the various statistical tools used as well as the steps in how to utilize each (Standard Deviation Analysis, Analysis of Variance ANOVA, Relative Standard Deviation, Bias Analysis, etc.).

    This book is essential reading for students and professionals who are involved in R&D within various fields in science and engineering such as, mechanical engineering, environmental science, manufacturing, aerospace engineering, and more.
