Zivorad R. Lazic is Quality Assurance Manager at Lenzing Fibers Corporation, Lowland, Tennessee, USA. Born in Ljubovija, Serbia, he completed his studies at Belgrade University, writing his thesis under the supervision of Prof. Dragoljub Vukovic. He began his career in Belgrade at the Military Technical Institute (VTI), where he was Head of Department for R&D into composite rocket propellants. He was trained at Hercules Inc., McGregor, TX, and spent more than six years as Vice President for Process and Product Development in P.T. South Pacific Viscose, Indonesia from 1994 until 2001. Dr. Lazic's interests include advanced statistical tools, DOE, SPC, EVOP, neural network modeling and the six-sigma approach.
" a useful textbook for a graduate-level course in the statistics of experimental design." ( E-STREAMS, September 2005) "covers the basic theory of DOE and provides numerous practical examples of its application in the chemical process industries" (Organic Process Research and Development, January 2005)
