International Statistical Engineering Association
Chair’s Welcome to the ISEA Webpage!
Welcome to the International Statistical Engineering Association (ISEA) webpage! We are the global society dedicated to advancing the emerging discipline of statistical engineering. We are extremely happy that you have reached out to learn more about us.
See information on statistical engineering to the right and download the flyer to learn more about ISEA.
We are a rapidly emerging discipline that has started an important journey. We sincerely hope that you will join us on this exciting adventure!
The ISEA leadership has identified four major goals for 2020:
In order to achieve these goals, we plan to focus on the following initiatives:
There are several ways that interested parties can get involved with ISEA. First of all, join ISEA if you are not already a member – its free! Once you are a member, you will have access to the members-only section of the website, which is where we are publishing the Handbook of Statistical Engineering (complete versions of Chapters 1 and 6, as well as nearly all of Chapter 2 and sections of Chapter 4 are currently posted). Other opportunities include:
Subscribe to the ISEA youtube Channel
ISEA now has its own YouTube Channel, where you can view past webinars and other educational videos about Statistical Engineering. Currently, there are two playlists Why is Statistical Engineering Important and Use cases, where we will be adding more in the coming months. Check out the channel, subscribe, comment on the content (including recommendations for future content), and set notifications to be updated when new videos are posted.
JOIN ISEA ON LINKEDIN
The ISEA LinkedIn group is now open to the public. Here you will find educational materials as well as information on upcoming events where you can learn more about statistical engineering. Please feel free to join the group and the conversation.
DATAWORKS WEBINAR SERIES
The organizers of DATAWorks have transitioned the in-person event, previously scheduled for March 31 – April 2, to a virtual event. Weekly webinars are being held during the months of April and May. ISEA is sponsoring a Statistical Engineering session on Friday, May 1 12:00-1:30PM EST. The planned session includes the following talks:
The Role of Statistical Engineering in Creating Solutions for Complex Opportunities, Geoff Vining, Virginia Tech
Statistical Engineering for Service Life Prediction of Polymers – Adam Pintar, National Institute of Standards and Technology
Sequential Testing and Simulation Validation for Autonomous Systems – Jim Simpson, JK Analytics
We invite you to attend all webinars. Attendance is FREE, but Registration is Required. To register and view the webinar schedule, please visit the DATAWorks Website.
Can’t Attend? Don’t worry. All tutorials and talks are being recorded and will be preserved in the DATAWorks Archives.
What is statistical Engineering?
The study of systematic integration of statistical concepts, methods, and tools, often with other relevant disciplines, to solve important problems sustainably.
WhY is statistical Engineering?
Problem solvers are faced with enormous problems such as: lower cost healthcare, cleaner environment and globally competitive manufacturing. A cohesive body of knowledge for solving such problems is lacking. Collection and analysis of high quality, relevant data is critical to success. Big Data approaches are useful but not sufficient. Statistical Engineering provides the integration needed to fill the gap. The need for Statistical Engineering educational programs and increased published applications of the discipline is vital and urgent.
For more information, join ISEA and gain access to the Handbook of Statistical Engineering, case studies, and other publications by thought leaders.
ISEA SECOND ANNUAL SuMMIT
Our second annual fall summit occurred in Gaithersburg, MD from September 23-24, 2019, and was co-located with the Fall Technical Conference. The program schedule included panel discussions, case studies, networking opportunities, and more. Proceedings available on members-only site.
UPCOMING ATTRACTION: 2020 SUMMIT
