Written as a tool for business, the book was developed to be used by anyone within the corporate structure. With included footnotes and technical information, it can also be used as a tool by seasoned mathematics and statistics professionals. The included large-scale case studies and graphic illustrations of the mathematics allow readers work through complex problems with ease.
Although mathematics (as advanced as needed to solve the problem) is used throughout the text, it is translated into simple arithmetic without any mathematical notation. The book limits references to a few essential texts and papers that readers can refer to as they become more experienced in statistical design and control.
