"Using Data for Decision Making" is a practical course that uses real world examples. It is intended to provide an understanding of using the tools of statistical inference for process improvement by looking into several scenarios and using the methodology to lead to solutions. This is not a theoretical statistics course, or series of courses. It is intended to be practical and a such is not a comprehensive statistics course, either. Don't be 'scared off' by the idea of statistical test for determining the effects of a process change, upset or experiment. This course is about understanding and using the correct statistical tools in a variety of situations to draw conclusions with an associated degree of confidence.

Process Improvement requires an organized approach, knowledgeable people, teamwork and the appropriate tools. There are a number of recognized approaches in use today. "Using Data for Decisions" focuses on the analytical tools of a branch of statistics known as statistical inference. The simple methods presented will be a review for many engineers and for others it will be an 'eye-opening' approach to using data in business and industry.

The learning objectives are for participants to:
     1. Review/Understand the fundamentals of statistical methods for process improvement
     2. Learn to select the correct statistical inference test to use in given situations
     3. Be able to test hypotheses and state conclusions at a known confidence level
     4. Become a more effective problem solver while making process improvements
