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.
In a quick nutshell, statistical engineering is the discipline dedicated to the art and science of solving complex problems that require data and data analysis. The more challenging of these problems truly keep senior organizational leaders awake at night. These problems almost always are unstructured and typically large, crossing several disciplines. These problems typically come unstructured and thus usually look like a “mess.” The key is how to provide enough definition and structure to create a reasonable solution path to a truly sustainable solution.
Our discipline provides guidance to develop appropriate strategies to produce sustainable solutions. It discusses which statistical and analytic tools/methods are appropriate depending on the circumstances, and it outlines how to create sustainable solutions efficiently and effectively. Ultimately, statistical engineering is the discipline that helps practitioners determine “the right tool for the right job at the right time, properly applied.”
We are a rapidly emerging discipline that has started an important journey. We sincerely hope that you will join us on this exciting adventure!

Our First Annual Summit!
We held our first annual Summit on October 1st and 2nd in West Palm Beach in conjunction with the Fall Technical Conference.
The proceedings are available for download.
The primary purposes of our initial Summit were to introduce what we mean by statistical engineering and to obtain important information abut where ISEA should go. The Summit represented the beginning of our formal strategic planning process. The ideas, suggestions, and passion of the 31 participants were extremely valuable to the ISEA leadership.
