Dr. Hoerl has authored five books in the areas of statistics and business improvement, two book chapters, and more than forty-five refereed journal articles. Hoerl's introductory text
Statistical Thinking: Improving Business Performance, co-authored with Dr. Ronald Snee, was described as "probably the most practical basic statistics textbook that has ever been written within a
business context" by the journal Technometrics. Hoerl served as an editor of the fourth edition of Statistics, A Guide to the Unknown, published in 2006. More recently, he wrote
Use What You Have: Resolving the HIV/AIDS Pandemic, with Dr. Presha Neidermeyer of West Virginia University, based on his sabbatical research.
This book is based on real life practical experience to help scientists engaged in formulation work to develop formulation strategies that will speed up the formulation process. This book is unique in that it tells formulation scientists what they need to know to successfully conduct formulation studies, not what is nice to know. Learn to develop screening experiments to identify those ingredients/components that are most important to the performance of the formulation. Optimize quality and performance of product formulations. Design and analyze formulation studies that involve both formulation variables and process variables using methods that reduce the required experimentation by 50%. With this book, the reader will be able to take advantage of the use of computer generated experiment designs when the classical design will not work given the physical and economic constraints of the given experiential environmental.
