Statistical Engineering is nothing new. I have used Statistical Methods within Engineering for 30 years. So it is not new. My presentation will provide examples of the practical application of Statistical Engineering and demonstrate a structure for the application of Statistical Engineering which I have used over the last 30 years.

Applications include give-away in the food industry, automotive production, climbing equipment and house insultation.

Statistical Engineering is not Six Sigma or Lean or Big Data or Data Science. Statistical Engineering is the silver bullet to many problems as it considers the fundamental law of engineering and couples this with the discipline of statistics. Statistical Engineering is very powerful but it lacks the buzz work of Six Sigma, Lean or Big Data. The challenge is how can the 'unsexy' become 'sexy to business leaders'?
