Abstract:

A manager who has just received his new task is immediately in some difficulty. Engineers and scientists by nature desire considerable accuracy in their findings. In conflict with this desire are two very severe boundary conditions namely, a fixed cost limitation for the task and a completion dated deadline. This difficulty can be relieved, considerably, by careful planning before making any expeditures of time or money for experimentation. This planning includes formulating the problems and possibly designing some experiments. This manual consists of two parts. In Part I the author has compressed the main guidelines for design of an experiment into fifty pages. Part II consists of a series of short appendices, each written for its own specific purpose. It is here that the reader can expect to find definitions, basic probability and statistical concepts and operations, methods of data analysis, and a few designs not mentioned in Part I.
