What is Here?
This site contains software tutorials to accompany Basic Engineering Data Collection and Analysis, by Stephen B. Vardeman and J. Marcus Jobe. Printouts and examples marked in the book with a "WWW" icon have corresponding pages in the tutorials. Methods of data analysis are illustrated in three applications: JMP® (by the SAS institute), MINITABTM (by Minitab, Inc.), and Microsoft® Excel (by Microsoft Corporation). The site is intended to be only a "primer," not by any means a complete guide to data analysis in the supported applications.
