Outliers may provide useful information about the development and manufacturing process. Analysts use various statistical methods to evaluate outliers and to reduce their impact on the analysis. This article describes some of the more commonly used identification methods.

Study the effect of outliers in Latin square design
From the practical work it is concluded that the outlier values have apparent and important effect on value of mean squares error, and the results of analysis of variance have been better after treating theOutlier values.
Univariate Outliers: A Conceptual Overview for the Nurse Researcher
The use of histograms, boxplots, interquartile range, and z-score analysis as common univariate outlier identification techniques are discussed and the outlier management techniques of deletion, substitution, and transformation are discussed.
Use of Outlier Detection in Database Availability Analysis
It is checked if outlier detection may be helpful in finding out abnormality in database usage and so improving the process of database availability analysis.
Tests to Identify Outliers in Data Series
This document shows different techniques to identify suspicious observations that would require further analysis and also tests to determine if some observations are outliers.
Outlier detection in autocorrelated manufacturing processes
In this simulation study, different schemes for monitoring production processes with of autocorrelated data are compared. A time series forecast is applied to the autocorrelated process and the
Outliers in Uniform Distribution
By arranging the data set in ascending order for the particular case where samples are comming out of Uniform distribution, percentage points are tabulated for testing hypothesis and constructing confidence intervals for different significance levels.
Outlier Detection Methods and the Challenges for their Implementation with Streaming Data
There is a need of a hybrid approach that combines classical algorithms and artificial intelligence algorithm to provide efficient solution for outlier detection of streaming data with good key performance indicators.
Progress in Outlier Detection Techniques: A Survey
This survey presents a comprehensive and organized review of the progress of outlier detection methods from 2000 to 2019 and categorizes them into different techniques from diverse outlier Detection techniques, such as distance-, clustering-, density-, ensemble-, and learning-based methods.
Rapid identification of outstanding real estate investment trusts with outlier detection algorithms
The objective of this study is to rapidly identify outstanding stocks from the Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) sector by adopting two outlier detection algorithms, i.e. Interquartile Range (IQR) and Local Outlier Factor (LOF).


Robust regression and outlier detection
This paper presents the results of a two-year study of the statistical treatment of outliers in the context of one-Dimensional Location and its applications to discrete-time reinforcement learning.

Applied Linear Statistical Models
Applied Linear Statistical Models 5e uses larger data sets in examples and exercises, and where methods can be automated within software without loss of understanding, it is so done.
