  • Apply the laws of reliability to test, determine, evaluate and predict the reliability of systems and components and devise ways for reliability improvement.
  • Apply statistical techniques to determine process performance (CpK, Natural Process Limits).
  • Apply hypothesis testing to verify differences in means, variance and standard deviations of data from designed experiments.
  • Define the correct control chart to analyze and control a process to reduce variation.
  • Apply the concepts of Measurement Systems Analysis and select appropriate techniques used to evaluate, control and reduce variation.
  • Acquire, analyze and interpret data from a process to determine if that process data is normally distributed, is in statistical control and capable of meeting customer requirements.
  • Apply problem-solving techniques to the development of an improvement plan for processes that are not in statistical control and/or not capable of meeting customer requirements.
