Course Duration: 30 hours
Information technology systems can improve quality and increase productivity. In addition to software different statistical methods can be used to evaluate critical processes in order to control production procedures and performances. The course in Information Technologies for Statistical Analysis and Quality Control includes basic issues of mathematical statistics and its application for the needs of the textile and clothing industry. The training will be carried out mainly with universal and, if necessary, with specialized software products.

The course in Information Technologies for Statistical Analysis and Quality Control includes basic issues of mathematical statistics and its application for the needs of the textile and clothing industry.
The training will be carried out mainly with universal and, if necessary, with specialized software products, through lessons:
This lesson deals with FMEA
This lesson deals with the probability distributions with application in textile practice.
The lesson starts with an brief explanation of Probability density functions.
It also includes the following discrete distributions:and the following continuous distributions:
This lesson is related to the measures of the central tendency and the measures of variability.The included measures of the central tendency are:Comparison between the Median and Mean is given.The lesson continues with a description of the Variability.The included measures of variability are:Comparison between the Standard Deviation and Variance is given.
This lesson deals with nonparametric statistical tests. The usage of these tests allows analyzing data that come as frequencies, such as the number of people in a sample who fall into different categories of age, income, and job classiﬁcation.
9. Application of statistical hypothesis tests in Statistical Process Control (SPC) and Acceptance Sampling (AS)
The first part of this lesson deals with the Statistical Process Control (SPC).
The second part of the lesson deals wit the Acceptance Sampling (AS)
The OC Curve is described.
This lesson is about the Analysis of variance (ANOVA).
ANOVA comes in different flavors. The simplest kind is the Single Factor ANOVA.
Two-Factor ANOVA Without Replication is used to estimate how the mean changes according to the levels of two categorical variables.
In Two-Factor ANOVA With Replication each combination of factor levels has several sample elements.
This lesson discuses the most straightforward regression type - the simple linear regression.
The lesson gives the essentials of the Simple Linear Regression.
Another topic of the lesson deals with the The Method of Least Squares.
How Good Is the Regression? The lesson gives an answer to question with the help of the coefficient of correlation and the coefficient of determination.
This lesson is adopted from the book "Design of Experiment and Optimization of Textile Processes" by Prof. Georgi Damyanov and
There are 60 questions related to the lessons.
The quiz is time limited to 60 minutes.
Each question gives 1 point.
40 - 45 points - Average
46 - 50 points - Good
51 - 55 points - Very Good
56 - 60 points - Excellent
