IE53300 - Industrial Applications of Statistics

Spring 2014

Days/Time: TTh / 3:00-4:15 pm
Credit Hours: 3

Learning Objective:
The application of statistics to the design and analisis of experiment-based industrial studies in order to optimize targeted objectives.

Design of experiments and analysis of experimental results are covered in depth. These include Single-factor, Factorial, Nested, Latin-square, 2 to the f, 3 to the f, Incomplete block, Fractional factorial, and Taguchi designs. Depending on the context, an appropriate design can be chosen in order to minimize the costs for the experiment while gathering sufficient data to achieve undiscovered knowledge. This course will be application-oriented.

Topics Covered:
Statistical analysis; Single-factor; Factorial; Nested; Latin-square; 2 to the f; 3 to the f; Incomplete block; Fractional factorial; Taguchi.

An introductory statistics course that covers basic probability, estimation, hypothesis testing, and simple regression.

Applied/Theory: 70/30
