This 2 hour course presents an overview of using small samples to draw conclusions about process or other changes at a defined confidence level. It provides the participant with tools and techniques for using data to make decisions with small samples as well as larger samples. To get the most benefit, the participant should have completed Parts 1 (PDH 207) and 2 (PDH 208) of Statistical Methods for Process Improvement or other statistical methods courses. While some theory is essential to understanding this is not a theoretical statistics course and is intended as a practical course for using small sample statistics.
This course will also provide help organizations that are either ISO 9001, 14001, 13485, TS 16949 or AS 9100 registered or seeking registration to meet the requirements for process and product monitoring and measurement as well as data analysis and continual improvement found in the standards.
This is part 4 of a five part series of Statistical Methods for Process Improvement. The five parts of this series are:
Part 1: Using Data for Process Improvement Part 2: Using the Normal Distribution Part 3: Using Process Control Charts Part 4: Using Data to Make Decisions Part 5: Understanding Process Capability
Using practical, simple and powerful statistical methods can help organizations monitor and measure process or product performance while providing information for fact based decision making. Proper use of these methods will provide valuable information for assessing process and/or product changes.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
