For Whom Intended An understanding of Statistics is required in the implementation of uncertainty calculations in Metrology such as: statistical and probability concepts in measurements, confidence levels and control charts etc.
Brief Course Description This TTi course covers all the usual topics in reliability and statistics and explains how the theory is applied in engineering.
In the study of basic statistics, students encounter equations which are not “user friendly.” The volume of statistical formulas and the “number-crunching” has made the true learning and application of statistics difficult for most people. In this course the actual evaluation of statistical formulas is done using programmable calculators such as the TI-82 and TI-83, which simplify the process and save hours of tedious work. This enables the student to devote more time to the overall understanding of basic statistics and applying the concepts learned.
Certificate Programs This course may be used as an elective for any TTi specialist certificate program.
Related Courses A one-day version of this course is included in the four-day course 132-4, Measurement Uncertainty.
Prerequisites There are no definite prerequisites for this course. However, prior completion of TTi Distance Learning course 103-2 “Applied Mathematics” would be helpful.
Text Each student will receive a course workbook, including most of the viewgraphs used in the course presentation.
