Statistical tools and techniques are very commonly used to help measure and improve the quality of a firm's process and product. If statistical analysis is not properly performed and/or understood, a firm can run the risk of distributing the kind of product to the market that ultimately fails, resulting in lost time and money. And of course, with statistics, practice makes perfect. During this two-day HIGHLY interactive training program, participants will be given the opportunity to apply statistics learned to real-world example data sets! The program begins by providing a basic overview of the most common statistical tools and terms. The course covers the use of statistical software packages and the role of software in statistical analysis and statistical process control. Areas addressed include how to use statistics to properly trend data, support the annual product review, justify process changes and set product specifications. By the end of day two, course participants will have acquired the skills necessary to design a statistically sound sampling plan that helps them comply with FDA APR requirements. Throughout the duration of this intimate, hands-on course, participants will be able to interact with both an expert instructor and their peers.
