    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.

    • Joint Statistical Meetings in Toronto

    We are organizing a Panel discussion session on Statistical Engineering at the Joint Statistical Meetings in Toronto in August. 


    Quality Engineering recently published two discussion papers co-edited by Christine Anderson-Cook and Lu Lu which brought together a group of leading applied statisticians from academia, industry, and government to discuss the important movement of Statistical Engineering (SE). The discussion series considered the progress made, the current status of SE, and what the future holds for SE. The International Statistical Engineering Association (ISEA) wants to bring this timely discussion to life. The panel consists of a subset of the discussants that contributed to the papers, and the moderator is the Quality Engineering editor-in-chief. Through a series of planned questions from the moderator, and spontaneous questions from the audience, the panel will discuss the unique value added by SE, notable advances, current obstacles, challenges, and opportunities as the discipline continues to grow. The goal of the panel is to inspire statisticians to consider their own possible role in advancing the adoption of Statistical Engineering to solve important problems with high quality solutions.
