Engineering statistics


Engineering statistics

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