Abstract: This presentation explores the similarities and synergies between statistical engineering and established engineering disciplines. Statistical engineering is compared to the focus, process, and knowledge of established engineering disciplines and identifies areas where synergies lie to the benefit of all engineering disciplines. Susan will share her experience as an industrial engineer integrating the statistical engineering tools and methods throughout her career as a quality engineer and her belief that statistical engineering has the potential to help solve large unstructured engineering challenges to improve the planet.
