Illiana Section 1213 offers Free Webinar January 16, 2018


The Illiana Section will join the Statistics Division for a Free Webinar: Introduction to ANOVA – January 16, 2018 at 7:00PM CST

Analysis of Variance, or ANOVA, is a fundamental tool in Statistics and Quality. It plays a critical role in analyzing data from designed experiments and forms the foundation of gauge R&R studies. This presentation focuses on the basics. The one-way ANOVA table is introduced, and a graphical interpretation of its components is provided. The situation is then complicated by adding a second factor leading to the two-way ANOVA table. Hypothesis tests for the importance of each factor are explained in terms of comparing the predictive ability of two models.  Interactions are discussed.


NIST Standard Reference Materials will form the context of the discussion, to which ANOVA models naturally apply.  However, the data presented in the examples will be simulated for pedagogical purposes.  The session will be planned to last 30 to 40 min to leave time for questions.  Software for performing the requisite calculations will not be covered.


Adam Pintar is a Mathematical Statistician at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), where he has worked since 2010 and focuses on applying statistical models and tools to scientific and engineering problems.  His education history includes degrees in Mathematics from Pittsburg State University in Kansas and Statistics from Iowa State University.  He is a member of the American Statistical Association and a senior member of the American Society for Quality.
