Publisher Synopsis

"Accurate measurements in clinical and industrial testing are often not possible; when used to control quality, the measurements lead to some right and some wrong conclusions. Kemp (U. of Wales) discusses the inevitability of wrong decisions and control of the frequency with which they occur. He presents concepts of statistical theory and their application in simply designed control charts, along with the concepts of acceptable and rejectable levels, to form a simple model to establish principles and criteria for the design and operation of statistical control procedures. Written for clinical technicians and quality control engineers with a reasonable knowledge of mathematics."--SciTech Book News"An accessible but very intelligent monograph on the statistics of quality control. Chapters 1 to 4 can nearly stand on their own as a first course in mathematical statistics."--Publication of the International Statistical Institute "Accurate measurements in clinical and industrial testing are often not possible; when used to control quality, the measurements lead to some right and some wrong conclusions.
