    The French Statistical Society (SFdS, Société Française de Statistique) gathers the overall French statistical community: academic researchers, as well as practitioners working in a large variety of business areas. The members of SFdS are organized in 14 thematic groups, covering several aspects of theory and application. Several conference, meetings and workshops are organized by SFdS: among them the "Journées de Statistique" (Statistics Days) is the one-week annual congress of the Society. The JES (Journées d'études en Statistique), held every two years, are high quality short courses dedicated to a specific theme. Moreover, the groups organize also several thematic meetings and workshops. SFdS organizes a special session during the ENBIS annual meeting, and reciprocally does ENBIS at the Journées de Statistique. The theme of the SFdS session at ENBIS 12 is "Reliability and Uncertainty Analysis in Industry".
  • Introducing the DEINDE Workshops (DEsign of INDustrial Experiments)

    Authors: Grazia Vicario (Politecnico di Torino)
    Primary area of focus / application: Design and analysis of experiments
    Keywords: Design of Experiments, DoE, industrial experimentation
    Submitted at 6-Aug-2012 11:04 by Grazia Vicario
    12-Sep-2012 09:45 Introducing DEINDE (DEsign of INDustrial Experiments)
    Workshops DEINDE were first introduced in the early nineties as a forum for researchers and practitioners alike to discuss topics related to industrial experimentation. In the course of the past editions, qualified experts gave presentations covering experimentation on large systems, dimensional scatter control on body in white, process optimization, experiments on mixtures, parameter prediction via simulation, characterization of dedicated software, experimentation in the food and drug industry.
    The workshops were targeted at experts and users of DoE, in order to provide a forum for sharing ideas, experiences and knowledge, with fairly informal style favoring discussion. Business, industry, manufacturing, administration, marketing, sales, logistics and service showcasing gave contributions, presenting shop problems and discussing actual solutions.

    10-Sep-2012 15:35 Using Design-Expert® Software to Manage Uncertainty in Design Space
    Design of experiments, followed by numeric and graphical optimization, is frequently used by engineers to optimize a process, and to define a design space or operating window. It is critical to understand the boundaries of this operating window – if you choose a specific set of operating conditions close to the boundary, what is the likelihood that normal process variation will cause the resulting measurements to be out of spec? To ensure critical quality characteristics are meeting specifications, uncertainty (variability) must be accounted for in defining the boundaries of the design space. Design-Expert® software accounts for this uncertainty via confidence intervals and tolerance intervals. These intervals allow engineers to present a more meaningful design space, one in which they have confidence that the results will be reliable. A “tableting” process is used to illustrate the method.
  • Operational Excellence and Advanced Condition Monitoring - Reducing Cost and Increasing Reliability of Current Assets in the Field

    Authors: Markus Gretschmann (IBM SPSS)
    Primary area of focus / application: Process
    Keywords: condition monitoring, operational excellence
    Submitted at 28-Aug-2012 16:08 by Markus Gretschmann
    10-Sep-2012 15:45 Operational Excellence and Advanced Condition Monitoring
    The presentation highlights approaches to achieve the goals of reduced cost and increased reliability of current assets in the field by leveraging available data.
    Major focus is given a customer story which illustrates how organizations can achieve operational excellence by using Advanced Condition Monitoring.
