Multiple Linear Regression EQ1

Multiple Linear Regression with SigmaXL

What is Multiple Linear Regression? Multiple linear regression is a statistical technique to model the relationship between one dependent variable and two or more independent variables by fitting the data set into a linear equation. The difference between simple linear regression and multiple linear regression: Simple linear regression only has one predictor. Multiple linear regression [...]

Simple Linear Regression with SigmaXL

What is Simple Linear Regression? Simple linear regression is a statistical technique to fit a straight line through the data points. It models the quantitative relationship between two variables. It is simple because only one predictor variable is involved. It describes how one variable changes according to the change of another variable. Both variables need [...]

One Sample Proportion with SigmaXL

What is the One Sample Proportion Test? One sample proportion test is a hypothesis test to compare the proportion of one certain outcome (e.g. the number of successes per the number of trials, or the number of defects per the total number of opportunities) occurring in a population following the binomial distribution with a specified [...]

One Way ANOVA with SigmaXL

What is One Way ANOVA? One way Analysis of Variance is a statistical method to compare means of two or more populations. It is a generalized form of the two sample t-test since a two sample t-test compares two population means and one way ANOVA compares k population means where k ≥ 2. Null Hypothesis (H0): μ_1=μ_2=...=μ_k [...]

Mann Whitney Testing with SigmaXL

What is the Mann Whitney Test? The Mann Whitney test (also called Mann–Whitney U test or Wilcoxon rank-sum test) is a statistical hypothesis test to compare the medians of two populations that are not normally distributed. In a non-normal distribution, the median is the better representation of the center of the distribution. Null Hypothesis (H0): [...]

NP Chart EQ1

NP Chart with SigmaXL

What is an NP Chart? The NP chart is a control chart monitoring the count of defectives. It plots the number of defectives in one subgroup as a data point. The subgroup size of the NP-chart is constant. The underlying distribution of this control chart is binomial distribution. NP Chart Equations NP-chart Data Point: Center [...]

Pareto Analysis with SigmaXL

Pareto Analysis with SigmaXL

Pareto Principle The Pareto principle is an observation not a law.  Named after Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, this principle states that for a variety of situations, 80% of consequences come from 20% of the causes, thus the Pareto principle is also known as the 80/20 rule. The 80/20 rule basically reminds us that the comparison of [...]
