Engineering Statistics For
Manufacturing and R&D


This workshop provides 4 days of hands-on learning for Directors, Managers, Engineers and Technicians in R&D, manufacturing and quality control.

By popular demand, the workshop is 100% hands-on with no lecture or PowerPoint® slides. Instead, the instructor leads attendees through four workbooks that demonstrate proven methods to study, troubleshoot and optimize complex manufacturing processes. The workbooks include statistical software exercises, concept visualizations and pencil-paper exercises.
