- Engineering statistics
Engineering statistics is a branch of
statisticsthat has several subtopics which are particular to engineering:
# (DOE) or
design of experimentsuses statistical techniques to test and construct models of engineering components and systems.
Quality controland process controluse statistics as a tool to manage conformance to specifications of manufacturing processes and their products.
Time and methods engineeringuse statistics to study repetitive operations in manufacturing in order to set standards and find optimum (in some sense) manufacturing procedures.
Reliability engineeringwhich measures the ability of a system to perform for its intended function (and time) and has tools for improving performance.
Probabilistic designinvolving the use of probability in product and system design
