Textbook: Introductory Statistics, 9th Edition, by Neil A. Weiss
A command of statistics is the cornerstone of the quality professional’s knowledge. It has become an indispensable tool used in virtually every manufacturing and academic discipline; therefore, some familiarity with statistical methods is essential for all of us.
This course provides the student with the principles and concepts of descriptive and inferential statistics using real-world examples. It is intended to give a sound introduction to the statistical procedures used in quality engineering without the anxiety usually associated with this study. This course will be useful to those pursuing ASQ certifications such as CQE, CQA, CSSGB/BB, and others. Introductory high school algebra is the only prerequisite. For students currently certified through ASQ, this course provides 2.4 recertification units (RUs) to count towards your recertification goal.
This course will be presented in eight (8), 3-hour sessions, one session per week (24 hours). There will be some homework assignments but no tests or quizzes will be given. Bring a calculator capable of performing basic statistical functions. We look forward to having you join us!

There are numerous engineers working in many different industries. Doug always wondered what it would be to work in healthcare. For many years he tried to transition to healthcare. Finally after 22 years in high tech electronics manufacturing, he transitioned to a hospital setting and has been there for 9 years. He thought it would interesting to share with you, his former colleagues, what it would be like. Specifically:
1) How is healthcare different then manufacturing 2) What is the Hospital Quality System 3) As a Quality /Process Engineer what type of work would you be performing in a Hospital 4) If you wanted to transition to healthcare, how best to prepare.
The Healthcare workforce of the future needs the quality tools and techniques we practice. Thus, sit back relax as we catapult you into a hospital setting as a quality engineer…
