Many problems encountered in practice are large, complex, and unstructured. The goal is to get a useful, workable solution. These problems typically have broad impact on process, financial, customer and environmental performance. Several departments, groups and functions are involved. Statistical engineering is designed to successfully deal with such problems which frequently occur in many different types of organizations. Join us to learn about statistical engineering, and how it was used to address a critical product manufacturing issue. The strengths and limitations of the approach are addressed and the recently formed International Statistical Engineering Association (ISEA) is introduced.
