Course Objectives The course aims to prepare the student to analyze and classify data and develop empirical models for industrial engineering problems under service/production contexts. The student will be able to distinguish between different statistical techniques and implement them using a statistical software package.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Students will improve their problem solving skills and their analytical thinking ability.
  • Students will become familiar with a suitable statistical package through computer-based statistical analysis.
  • Students will learn how to collect and analyze data and use statistics to enhance their project objectives.
  • Students will learn to differentiate the common uses and misuses of statistics in business and industrial applications.
  • Students will be able to define and differentiate industrial and systems engineering problems that can be solved using statistical techniques.
Course Content Applications of simple and multiple linear regression, design and analysis of experiments, multivariate analysis and nonparametric tests for the solution of industrial engineering problems.
