This book describes a systematic methodology for formulating mixed-ingredient products so that they perform to particular standards, providing scientists and engineers with a fast track to the implementation of the methodology. Examples from a wide variety of fields are included, as well as a discussion of how to design experiments for a mixture setting and how to fit and interpret models in a mixture setting. It also introduces process variables, the combining of mixture and nonmixture variables in a designed experiment, and the concept of collinearity and the possible problems that can result from its presence. The book is a useful manual for the formulator and can also be used by a resident statistician to teach an in-house short course. Statistical proofs are largely absent, and the formulas that are presented are included to explain how the various software packages carry out the analysis.
