George E.P. Box
Dr. Box is a Vilas Professor, the highest honor awarded to faculty by the University of Wisconsin. Dr. Box is concerned with the planning and analysis of industrial experiments. The object is to determine the important factors affecting product quality then adjust them to their best levels. Recent work has concentrated on reduction of variance, as well as adjustment of mean levels. New Bayesian methods of analysis have been devised for highly fractionated designs. Studies of reduction of variance transmissions are in progress.
