An online live talk on Data Analytics was held on 9th May 2020 by Dr. Balagopal G Menon, Assistant Professor , IIT Kharagpur. The webinar discussed Statistics is a critical tool for robustness analysis, measurement system error analysis, test data analysis, probabilistic risk assessment, and many other fields in the engineering world. Traditionally, however, statistics are not extensively used in undergraduate engineering technology (ET) programs
Design of Experiment is a specific application of statistical techniques to enable rapid and robust development. This technique can be directed towards factor screening or process robustness depending on specific needs of project phase. These experiments result in a stronger process understanding, while requiring less time and fewer material resources. This talk addressed the fundamentals of applied statistics which include multivariate statistics and Design of Experiments.
