Today's practising engineer faces the triple challenge oftighter targets, more variables, and less time. Traditionalapproaches are losing the battle, but an unexpected ally is athand. Statistical techniques are becoming accessible
and they offer the possibility of facing the challenge withincreased confidence. Statistics for Engine Optimizationoffers the knowledge and experience of the engineers and thestatisticians who are collaborating to use these techniques andexpand the tool kit.
