Time series analysis : forecasting and control by
George E. P Box(
Book
)
132 editions published between 1944 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 3,525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book is concerned with the building of models for discrete time series and dynamic systems. It describes in detail how such models may be used to obtain optimal forecasts and optimal control action. All the techniques are illustrated with examples using economic and industrial data. In Part 1, models for stationary and nonstationary time series are introduced, and their use in forecasting is discussed and exemplified. Part II is devoted to model building, and procedures for model identification, estimation, and checking which are then applied to the forecasting of seasonal time series. Part III is concerned with the building of transfer function models relating the input and output of a dynamic system computed by noise. In Part IV it is shown how transfer function and time series models may be used to design optimal feedback and feedforward control schemes. Part V contains an outline of computer programs useful in making the needed calculations and also includes charts and tables of value in identifying the models

Statistics for experimenters : design, innovation, and discovery by
George E. P Box(
Book
)
18 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The second edition of Statistics for Experimenters focuses on applications in the physical, engineering, biological, and social sciences. From the beginning, the book's source of ideas is the scientific method itself and the need of the investigator to make his or her research as effective as possible through proper choice and conduct of experiments and appropriate analysis of data. After a problem is stated, appropriate statistical methods of design and analysis are discussed. And frequently, examples are presented for which standard mathematical assumptions are wrong, thus forcing the reader's attention onto the essential precautions necessary in the conduct of the experiment to ensure valid conclusions

Statistical control by monitoring and feedback adjustment by
George E. P Box(
Book
)
30 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Recent research has shown that monitoring techniques alone are inadequate for modern Statistical Process Control (SPC), and there exists a need for these techniques to be augmented by methods that indicate when occasional process adjustment is necessary. Statistical Control by Monitoring and Adjustment, Second Edition presents the relationship among these concepts and elementary ideas from Engineering Process Control (EPC), demonstrating how the powerful synergistic association between SPC and EPC can solve numerous problems that are frequently encountered in process monitoring and adjustment. The book begins with a discussion of SPC as it was originally conceived by Dr. Walter A. Shewhart and Dr. W. Edwards Deming. Subsequent chapters outline the basics of the new integration of SPC and EPC, which is not available in other related books. Thorough coverage of time series analysis for forecasting, process dynamics, and nonstationary models is also provided, and these sections have been carefully written so as to require only an elementary understanding of mathematics. Extensive graphical explanations and computational tables accompany the numerous examples that are provided throughout each chapter, and a helpful selection of problems and solutions further facilitates understanding."Publisher's description
