Industrial Statistics Training Course Description

This Industrial Statistics Training course brings together important concepts that allow engineering and operations organizations to understand industrial statistics concepts. The focus is on applying these concepts to optimize processes, implement statistical process control, and use statistical concepts in assessing product and process performance. The Industrial Statistics Training course utilizes real-life case studies to help you understand these technologies. At the end of the Industrial Statistics Training course, you will have an understanding of the key industrial statistics tools, technologies, terminology, and capabilities.

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of this Industrial Statistics Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Industrial Statistics Training course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
• If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the Industrial Statistics Training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
