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 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.

Slide Deck Available
A slide deck describing statistical engineering is now available. Members are encouraged to use these slides to educate others on the benefits of statistical engineering.
BLOG #1: DATAWORKS WEBINAR SUMMARY
Did you miss the May 1 DataWorks webinar that featured three Statistical Engineering talks? Geoff Vining from Virginia Tech started off the webinar with a presentation entitled “The Role of Statistical Engineering in Creating Solutions for Complex Opportunities.” Two case studies also showed the application of statistical engineering in different settings. Adam Pintar from NIST shared “Statistical Engineering for Service Life Prediction of Polymers” and Jim Simpson of JK Analytics presented “Sequential Testing and Simulation Validation for Autonomous Systems.”
Geoff’s talk introduced statistical engineering as an approach for solving problems with unstructured, messy, and usually large datasets. The presentation helps explain what statistical engineering is, the phases of the process, and the personnel involved (i.e. the need for subject matter experts). He also described how important leadership, teamwork, and other people skills are for the statistical engineer, in addition to technical expertise, to be effective in this role.
Geoff included details about the first university course focused on Statistical Engineering, which he taught at Virginia Tech to graduate and undergraduate students this spring.
