Knowledge of the first part (IE230) is necessary. Although I will review IE230 concepts in the first two classes, it is incumbent upon you to go back and make sure you understand the material from IE230. Review material on http://gilbreth.ecn.purdue.edu/~ie230 This class is very important, and can be difficult to understand. Statistics and experimentation are a fundamental part of industry and research, as well as everyday life. I will focus as much as possible on the application of statistics (as opposed to the math). The math will be used to explain things that may be non or even counter intuitive. If you do not understand the material, please ask questions, email me, or come to office hours. It is often simple misunderstandings that prevent students from grasping statistics. This is a statistics class for engineers . By the end, I hope you can apply statistics to data properly rather than derive mathematical results. OVERVIEW OF CLASS SCHOOL OF INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING This class is difficult and fastpaced. Do not fall behind read the chapter, read the slides, do the homework problems, and study for the quizzes and tests. My experience has been that those that fail this class are those that do not try (for one reason or another). If you make a reasonable amount of effort, you can most likely get at least a C. If you dont make an effort, you will probably get a D or an F, then have difficulty in succeeding classes that require statistics knowledge. Come see me during office hours if you start having trouble with the material. If you understand the first few chapters (8, 9, and 10), the rest of the course becomes fairly easy to understand. Dont wait until late in the semester there is not much we can do at that point....
