This seminar provides managers and supervisors with an opportunity to apply statistical skills acquired in earlier courses. Participants learn to synthesize and evaluate the results of research and data-gathering efforts as intelligent consumers of data, ask correct and appropriate questions, make appropriate observations, and suggest sensible follow-up strategies when presented with the results of industrial research. The participants will walk through the appropriate analyses of a number of studies actually conducted in various plants. Analyses corresponding to both the vendor and customer perspective are explored.
